Guy could you give a little information on the L’ Air tank trailer.
Steve


Steve,

I don't have any data on that trailer, sorry: I know that it was designed for liquefied gases transport, hence the rear "cabinet" housing all valves where hoses are connected for loading/unloading operations (and possibly other items such as evaporation exchanger...).
L' Air Liquide in France (like Messer-Griesheim in Germany or Air Products in English-speaking countries) was a company specialized in generation of those gases (argon, carbon dioxide, hydrogen, nitrogen, etc) and transport/delivery to end-users (hospitals, labs, industry, etc). They changed the company name to Air Liquide (without the "L'") years ago: https://www.airliquide.com/

I hope this helps.

Guy thanks for the information, the trailer just looked out of wack with the way the cabinet was on the back and the way it looked raised on top of the fifth wheel. Also thanks for the picture of the real truck and trailer.

Steve,

The load looks like an electrical transformer mainly made - as per Jean-Jacques' information - of bed wooden base slats.

I hope this helps.

Transports Clergue Mercedes-Benz LPS 1932 unit towing a reefer dedicated to products of a well-known French cheese company(*):









Note (*): Charles de Gaulle - French President in the 50s/60s - said once to explain how difficult it was to "govern" France: "How do you want to rule a country where one can find 246 different cheeses?".
It should be noted that the professional magazine "Profession Fromager" identified approx. 1800 different sorts of cheese in France by 2015 (source: Wikipedia).

Steve,

The refrigeration unit was made by Ixo and delivered on the reefer as is: Jean-Jacques does not generally modify his 1/43 models, as opposed to his 1/50 collection.
A very similar unit exists in white metal and in a 1/50 scale, that can be used to build vintage reefer semi-trailers. An example on a vintage 32' Fruehauf-US FB-F2-32/150/96 reefer semi-trailer, that I built from a Norscot box unit:



I hope this helps.

Guy thanks for the response. Next question, is the Ford tractor custom or did Corgi make a tractor along with the tow truck.

Steve,

Both Fords are Corgi Toys models.
I suppose that the British Company produced the 4x2 tractor first, which was later converted into a wrecker: this 2nd one was still equipped, under its Holmes body, with a Corgi 5th wheel coupling system.
Main mods performed were the replacement, on the tractor, of the Corgi coupling system by a white metal 5th wheel and on both models, of Corgi wheels by spoke wheels.

Regards.
Guy
