Jamie,

2 Siku Zetros displayed earlier in this topic in a Jordanian transport company livery. The only thing I did were a new flatbed on the truck and a shortened frame with 5th wheel and 2 spare wheels on the tractor. In addition, "toyish" Siku wheels have been replaced by resin-made MiniCams 14.00 wheels and tires:



As you can see, the level of detail is not the same between Siku and IMC models (in addition Siku ones are equipped with single wheels all-round, while the IMC wrecker is fitted with dual wheels on the rear tandem).

I hope it helps.

Late 2010, Solido is back to military modelling, some 1/48 models being built by them in Bangladesh in resin for the American train producer, MHT Electric Trains [...] Solido subcontracting activities didn't last very long, as the American company disappeared in 2021 in their original form, with the retirement of Mike Wolf, its founder. The few Solido models - very well detailed, as far as I could see - of the defunct American company, were sold direct by the French company from that date [...]


2 other US Army vehicles reproduced by Solido:





- left: AM General HMMWV M1151 4x4/2 cross-country car with 12.7mm machine-gun (Solido model),
- right Ling-TEMCO-Vought Aircraft Corporation M270/A1 tracked armored vehicle fitted with a multiple rockets launching system (modified Solido model).

To be continued.

The AM General HMMWV (its official name being difficult to pronounce, it was often nick-named "Humvee"), here in the M1151 version:

The Ling-TEMCO-Vought Aircraft Corporation M270/A1 MRLS, which became famous in Europe thanks to capabilities of the few units shipped by the US Army to the Ukrainian Army in their current war against Russia:

Canada and Australia(*) are 2 countries where road transport with B-Doubles is widely represented. Here, a B-Double train in the livery of Toll, an Australian logistics company:

In Australia still, with a system full of promises, as it avoids the need for any external lifting mean to load/unload maritime containers in remote areas(*):







Kenworth-Australia T909 6x4/2 tractor and O'Phee/BoXLoader Skeleton 40' 3-axle container carrier chassis semi-trailer fitted with 2 Multiloader sliding hydraulic lifting arms (Drake Collectibles models) carrying 2 DFIC 20' GP 20ft maritime containers (WSI models),



Note (*): several different products are available, including sliding cranes of the French company BXL fitted onto containers skeleton chassis of Australian company O'Phee Trailers (today part of the Drake Group).
Two 20ft containers are linked together with inserts fitted between containers ends, allowing them both to be lifted as if they were a standard 40ft container.
