ChandlerYohn,

The original 1/50 Siku model (left) only requires its small wheels and "toyish" fifth wheel to be replaced. Except for that, it looks alright for me, for approx. one third the price of the Diecast Masters model (right)l:



I hope it helps.

Hi Guy, great to hear from you. The wheel upgrade looks solid. Where did you get the new wheels from? I have a NY bendy bus I'd really like to replace the wheels on. Hope you're having a great weekend. Take care and all the best.

ChandlerYohn,

Many thanks for your support and of your interest to this topic.

I forgot about the origin of front hubs (possibly Arpras), while rear ones are from Conrad, for sure. They have been fitted with Conrad tires all round:



The Freightliner fifth wheel is a modified white metal one I have in stock (I bought them years ago from a Dutch model parts seller): I just open the hole and insert a pin to hold in place any of my modified semi-trailers:



I hope it helps.
