Scania 140 and Brick Trailer
This 1:50 scale model by WSI is a Scania 140 6x2 tractor with brick trailer and loading crane.

Detailing of the Scania is excellent, with very good transmission and suspension elements detailed in metal. The rear axle is very detailed with the lift mechanism fully modelled and functioning, and the steering turns to a reasonable degree. The engine and gearbox are coloured and the exhaust system looks good. Rubber mud flaps are fitted behind the front wheels.

The cab has some nicely rendered graphics and a numberplate, and also tilts to reveal a detailed engine. Behind the cab, there are coiled lines and the fuel tanks are modelled well.

The trailer is excellent – very detailed underneath, including hoses. The surface of the trailer is high quality, with good representation of timber, and the side panels are painted really well – each side being modelled as one piece, rather than separate panels.

The trailer is also fully featured. All the axles have effective working suspension with good movement, and the rear axle steers by a mechanical linkage to the fifth wheel. The landing legs can be screwed down, revealing smooth pistons, and the sides of the trailer can be lowered. The rear panel can be removed and extension tracks for the crane folded out.

The Hulo crane is modelled very well in metal, being both detailed and functional. It can travel along the deck, the arm rotates and the trolley can be positioned. Amazingly, it includes a working winch. The look of the model can be enhanced by using a set of ‘Hulo-stacked’ bricks, which are available as a separate accessory.

A lot of care has been put into this model of a classic truck, and the result is creation of an outstanding piece with high functionality.
