Modelmaniac,

Based on existing Tisvol units, I currently have 2 Joal tipping semi-trailers:

- a "Basculante Integral", which is untouched yet: the oversized hydraulic ram system has to be modified not to protrude over the tipper. Except for that, it is correctly modeled by Joal as it 12.50 metres long, resulting in it being mainly used for light products, such as cereals (left),
- a "Bañera Integral" model, which is the shortened version of the Joal model. It is in reality "only" 10 metres long (right). This Tisvol unit is mainly used in Spain for conventional products moved on construction sites:



I hope it helps.

Even though they are models of 2 slightly different vehicles - Bedford fitted with a Plaxton coach body of 11 metres long and 2.4 metres wide reproduced in a 1/50 scale by Corgi and Bedford/Duple coach (11.50x2.5 metres) produced in a 1/48 scale by Dinky Toys - it is difficult not to compare both models, representing coaches built on a similar Bedford chassis, produced with a nearly 40 years gap:





The Dinky Toys Bedford/Duple VAL14 coach:



VAL14/Vega Major C52F 6x2/4 coach bodied by Duple on a Bedford chassis (modified Dinky Toys model)

Back in the fifties and sixties, ex-US Army WW2 vehicles, left in large numbers all over Europe, were in France a cheap alternative to brand new trucks:

Building by Jean-Francois of a Berliet TR305 tractor, using a MiniCams kit with homemade roof and cab rear panel (*):









Note (*): sharp eyes may have noted the "orange peel" effect of the top cab paint. For the first time in his long career of experienced model maker, JF failed in painting the cab, using an out-of-date paint tin. As all his mods of the resin cab were made of plastic foils, he preferred to avoid a complete clean-up before repaint.
