Other military vehicle reproduced by Solido, the Renault VAB, here in its 4x4 VTT version ("Vehicule de Transport de Troupes", which means "Personnel Carrier Vehicle"):









Link to the Wikipedia page describing the VAB ("Vehicule de l'Avant Blinde", which could be translated as "Armored Vanguard Vehicle"), the standard French Army Armored Personnel Carrier for many years: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/V%C3%A9hicule_de_l%27Avant_Blind%C3%A9

A "millepiedi" road combination, then authorized on Italian roads at 44 tonnes:

Closer shots of the FIAT/Perlini truck with its Viberti tipping body
Please note that, at that time, most of Italian trucks had a right-side driving seat -in spite of driving on the right side of the road - to be located, for a better view, on the dangerous side in mountainous and winding roads:







The Italian road combination, beautifully restored, which was probably modeled in a 1/50 scale:

As indicated in the post above, the tilting body was from Viberti origin, Perlini being the company which modified the FIAT vehicle in a 8x2. Sorry for the mistake.

Guy: I'm surprised that you are just now revealing this model. It's superb looking. Really heavy duty. Thanks, Craig

Craig,

The model was only recently offered in various colors by GMTS: https://lkwmodelle.de/GMTS-GOLDEN-OLDIES-LINIE-50:::3296.html
As most of their resin 1/50 production, it is built by their Romanian sub-contractor, resulting in long delays between announcement and availability.

I hope it helps.

We all know commercial links between model producers and plant equipment or vehicles manufacturers, limited series produced for third parties are less known.
Below, a combination produced by Conrad - in a Rheinland-Pfalz German town Technical Services livery, exclusively produced for MSW, a model retailer well-known within European collectors:







MAN TGS 35-440 BL 8x4/4 truck with a front tool holder plate and a Meiller RK30 hydraulic drop-off tipper loading device, carrying a Meiller RS26 large-volume drop-off tipping body and towing a Schwarzmüller Tü 40/100 2+2-axle low bed drawbar trailer (Conrad/MSW models). The combination is delivering a Liebherr LR 636 tracked loader with ripper of 23.61 tonnes (Conrad model).

To be continued.

Pretty rare in Jean-Jacques' collection - mainly concentrating on 50s-70s French vehicles or plant equipment and South-East of France companies (Monaco included) -, a Toyota 4x4 double-cabbed van turned into a Japanese light intervention pumper by Nikki:









In the background, a 1/57 US Forest Fire all-wheel drive GMC.
