Here's my latest truck, it's the Volvo FH12 460 from Motorart in 1:43.

Also in the pictures a Saab 96 V4 from 1973. :D

Nice Volvo......I have that one too with the drawbar trailer. Motorart did a nice job on it and its a proper 1/43 scale too

I'm another that gives a thumbs up on your new truck. Will you be converting it to some sort of rally support vehicle?

I think I'll keep this one as it is, it's just to nice to convert into something else. :)

Nice truck Magnus! Also like the classic Saab which looks really tiny in comparison. The bearded figurine looks a little like Cornelis Vreeswijk? :)

This looks really cool! How is the quality of the model? Is it all diecast or are the boxes plastic. Also is it really 1/43 or is it 1/50? May just have to get me one.

Very cool pictures by the way.

It's absolutely in 1/43, my 1/50 trucks are much smaller!

The chassis and "drivers cabin" are made of metal, sideskirts and boxes are plastic, but the doors of the box are possible to open and the boxes are are very fine detailed.
The general impression of the truck is that it's very nice! :D

I can take some detail photos if you want.

Is a very well done model...I have that Volvo FH12 with the same refrigerated trailer too . The Corgi 1/50 trucks are nice, but the 1/43 versions look a lot better
