Comment on this model.

This MAN TGS truck has a Moser tipper body which can both end-tip and side-tip.

It is in the colours of Eicher Transporte AG of Eriz in Switzerland.


The model comes in a standard Conrad box, and it is wrapped in foam rubber. 

The review model had no defects or missing parts.

There is no information provided about the real vehicle or instructions for the model.  The only assembly required is to fit the door mirrors and roof aerial.


The 10x4 truck chassis is good with most of the transmission and suspension modelled in plastic whilst the steering axles are modelled for functionality only.  The chassis structure is metal but the lift ram for the tipper body is prominent and sits too low to the ground although this is not visible in most views.  The wheels are particularly smartly decorated,  and the tyres are the same on all axles.

The MAN cab has very good detailing although there is no number plate even though it has the Eicher fleet number which is 4.  There are air horns on top and many small graphics around the cab.  The MAN type number is TGS 41.480.  Under the cab the engine is modelled in detail.

Behind the cab the chromed exhaust is metal and looks good.  The wheel arch on axle 2 is plastic and those on axles 3 to 5 are metal and textured.  At the rear the lights are painted and there is a plastic towing hitch.

The tipper body is all metal with a nicely modelled structure underneath, and the side and end panels are good too.  The paint finish is very good and there are small Moser graphics.


The two front axles have linked steering and they can achieve a very good angle.  Axle 3 also steers, and it can be raised and clipped out of service.  The two rear axles have a degree of up and down movement to represent suspension.

The cab tilts forward and can maintain a tilted pose.

The tipper body can end-tip conventionally and it achieves a reasonable angle.  The tailgate opens although it is not free swinging.

The tipper body can also side-tip by using the clever clipping mechanism that Conrad has designed.  It tips to a good angle and the side can be lowered to allow the load to discharge.


As usual Conrad has produced a strong well-made model.  It has a high metal content. 

The quality of the paintwork and graphics is very good, and the Eicher livery is very smart.


The model is moderate value.


This is a fully functional tipper model with well implemented features.  It is also attractive.  Overall it is highly recommended.


The model first appeared at the Nuremberg Toy Fair in 2014.
