modelmaniac,

I got the model in this livery and didn't re-paint it.
On their website, First Gear indicate 2 different liveries ( https://www.firstgearonline.com/product-store/towing-and-recovery/ ) while you can find a plain white model in addition on some seller's websites: https://le-bull-jaune.com/achat/produit_details.php?id=8293

A Van Seumeren combination, the Dutch company which took-over Mammoet late nineties to become one of the world leaders in craneage and heavy haulage. The tow truck, specifically produced by Terberg (a small Dutch special trucks producer) from Volvo elements, was mainly used in Latin America and Far-East:
