Roy: You're right. Those are great looking trucks. Love the color with those black wheels. What is that on the rear, ballast or a covered box on a straight truck? CAW

It's 1:43 and produced by IXO for Hachette. At the newsstands, they were 20 Euros when new.

Jamiescotland,

The model was produced by Ixo in a 1/43 scale for Hachette and their press stand "Berliet Trucks Collection" series.
It went out with booklet No25 in December 2018 and is apparently now sold out.

A nice model overall, even if it is far from reflecting the real Dessirier H. Zucconi tow truck:



The model that was reproduced by Ixo for both Altaya (Millon livery) and Hachette (Dessirier H. Zucconi livery):



If you go to Mr. Scholz post in topic http://forums.dhsdiecast.com/default.aspx?g=posts&t=139479 in this very same forum, you'll find out that the ex-Army tank transporter unit was first "civilized" in Sengler SA colors, then bought by a new collector, who restored it in Dessirier H. Zucconi livery (both trucks bear the same "7466 ZH 67" licence plate number).

I hope this helps.
Guy

Very nice detail for only 20 euro.
