Jean-Francois produced recently - using a disused Tekno half-pipe tipper body - a tipping semi-trailer for which he made a new chassis:

In line with his usual attention to detail, he couldn't resist building a mobile hand crank for its landing legs, homemade wheel hubs and hydraulic rams for the rear tailgate:

Guy you should see if Jean-Francois could get pictures from start to finish on one of his projects, I bet they would be very interesting.

The tipping semi-trailer in its final version. The WSI IVECO tractor was modified by Jean-Francois as well, its high roof, being replaced by a flat low roof unit:

Another recent Jean-Francois production.
The Mack F700 tractor, fitted with an Aerodyne cab (Tekno kit), has joined other Macks in Jean-Paul's fleet:

Guy: Love that Mack 4x2 And the interesting load. Is that a Corgi trailer? Why do you prefer the Tekno kits over the ready built?

Craig,

I think that the semi-trailer is, either a Tekno or a WSI Pacton 3-axle flatbed. Load is made with some electrical parts, found in one of Jean-Jacques "bits and pieces" boxes.
Tekno kits are of excellent quality and about half price of ready-built units. They can be built and painted as per your own wishes, without having to dismantle and strip down paint of a costly model (generally sold together with a semi-trailer, moreover).
Jean-Paul bought a few F700 Mack kits from Bemo Models (that Dutch seller was taken-over by Tekno BV earlier this year) and got them all built and painted by Jean-Francois, to suit his own requirements.

I hope this helps.

The Simba ARFF - produced by Rosenbauer and Titan GmbH in the 80s - had two 625hp engines at rear. With its 1250hp installed, the vehicle of 44 tonnes GVW could accelerate from 0 to 80km/h in 25 seconds and was able to reach a 125km/h maximum speed on airport runways:

The Simba range, produced from early 80s, was made of revolutionary 6x6 and 8x8 vehicles produced by Rosenbauer on Titan or EWK chassis fitted with various capacity engines. The Conrad version of the 6x6 "small brother", alongside the 1250hp "monster" unit, shown above:
