Steve,

Both tractors are Renault Kerax units, fitted with sleeping (top) and day (bottom) cabs.
They are modeled in a 1/50 scale by MiniCams.

I hope this helps.

Really like the look of those Renault's.I thought the 'Maxter'was a rugged looking truck.Especially as I saw lots of 8 wheel tippers,then the 'Kerax' looked even better.Now the new straight lines have(in my opinion)messed up the beauty of Renaults.I don't suppose looks mean much for trucks.Did Minicams produce that Renault 6 wheel tipper?Is it available anywhere,or was it a conversion?

modelmaniac,



All tippers above are MiniCams products. The 6x4 COE truck is generally fitted with the conventional Marrel tipping unit (the one installed on the Renault at the left) but it can be as well equipped, on demand, with the more robust Marrel quarry tipping gear.

I hope this helps.

Steve,

I personally think that both pick-up and equipment trailer look good, in particular considering their limited price.

I hope this helps.
