That Volvo looks so much better,I think the original Joal tractor had a bit too long wheelbase,and limited the truck to low-loader duties.Those Tekno wheels look good,with that cab.Did you,put the Joal cab on a Tekno chassis?or,was more work needed?

Guy those honey combed slabs are know as flexi core in our neck of the woods, and I have never seen them in 1/50 scale before they are nice.

modelmaniac,

The Volvo frame was a Joal chassis modified to get the additional 2nd axle fitted.
Most of European 2-axle FH Volvos have a wheelbase of 3.6 metres, which is correctly modelled by Joal at 7.2 cm (equal to 3.6m in a 1/50 scale).
As far as 6x4s are concerned, 2 types of wheelbases existed and the Joal model is corresponding to the longer (and heavier) one.
For comparison purposes, both 6x4 wheelbases below: the short one (modified Joal on top) and the long one (original Joal chassis at bottom):





I hope this helps.

So,you had a 4x2,added an axle,and wheels?So it was always the correct length.Did not know about the two wheelbases,just knew the Joal one was too long for some trailers.Makes sense they modelled the longest version.Well done with that shortened Volvo.It looks right,with that trailer.
