2 other Siku models, produced without mention of any specific scale(*):





- left: Morgan Plus 8 3.5 4x2/2 cabriolet with tarpaulin (Siku model),
- right: Mini Cooper 1.6 4x2/2 car (Siku model).

Note (*): with no scale stamped, one could reasonably guess that these models were reproduced in a 1/55 scale, largely favored by the German producer for that type of model.
Th. Höing - Siku models German specialist - indicates that both models are in a 1/52 scale.

The Mini Cooper car appears to have been produced - as per my model length analysis - in a 1/52 scale (1/5163):

Short trip to Switzerland:



Kenworth K 100E 6x4/2 tractor and Nicolas unknown type (*) 3-axle extendable ultra low bed (repaired Scale Masters models), carrying a Wartsilä W 16V32 electrical generation Diesel engine casting of unknown weight (Scale Masters/IMC load),







Note (*): any information on the Nicolas semi-trailer type is more than welcome, the only "similar" Friderici equipment I could find so far being a 2-axle B 2229C: https://autoline.info/-/sale/low-bed-semi-trailers/NICOLAS/B-2229C-Tieflader--23021817092487987700 .

Craig,

The combination is resin-built by Scale Masters, a Dutch company I didn't know about, exclusively for Friderici.
I bought it from that transport company in Switzerland direct and it came by the post in its plexiglass display box with quite a lot of loose items (left exhaust and air cooler assembly, fifth wheel and king pin, 3 semi-trailer resin inserts used to screw it to the base, etc).
Link to Scale Masters website: https://scalemasters.nl/producten/

I hope it helps.
