Wow.I personally,would have to do something about those tyres.Do they have the usual metal axles?


modelmaniac,

I'm not at home this week and can't therefore verify wheels design. I know that the model has metal axles but I don't remember if rims and tires are just one piece or if they are built and painted separately.

Regards.

Guy that is just an incredible custom by Jean-Francois, that is what I picture when they say truck crane. A couple of demo companies still have some of those in our area. Tell him great job.

Steve, exacly my thinking! This rig could do a serious demo job. The custom axles are just beautiful. Love it!

Cheers,

Steve,

I'm not sure about its precise production year but Corgi produced that Mack LJ in various 4x2 tractors and 6x4 trucks liveries, let's say early 2000.

I hope this helps.

Guy the ten wheel tanker is very nice. On the Berliet tractor why do they put the roof racks on them, I’m guessing this is a stupid question, but we can’t let The Q ask all of them.

The kit was not originally provided with the roof rack but that was a special addition requested by Jean-Paul, who bought a few of these from Bemo Models in Holland. That's the kind of stuff which could be seen (mainly in Northern Europe, I must admit) in those days, where things like tarpaulin or metal trunks would be stored, as there was nearly no storage place in those day-cab trucks.
Two examples below with a Norwegian 8x2 N-cabbed Volvo and the French "Gazelle" 6x6 truck working as a support vehicle for the famous Berliet T100:





I hope this helps.

Guy thanks for the information and pictures. It makes sense but have never seen them over here, only on the Volkswagen buses.

Two Ford Cargo trucks(*) produced by NZG in the 80s:





On the left: Ford Cargo 1620 4x2/2 carrier with Hall box (modified NZG model),
On the right: Ford Cargo 2838 4x2/2 tractor (modified NZG model) and Hobur 3-axle tank semi-trailer (modified Tekno model).

Note (*): It seems that NZG have produced a different cab arrangement on both models as carrier mud guards are protruding more from the cab than on the other version.

To be continued.
