The Scheuerle InterCombi with Rotor Blade Adaptor is a specialised transporter designed for circumstances when normal road haulage cannot get a turbine blade to a site.

The model is in the colours of the German company  Onroad and features a Mercedes-Benz Actros tractor.


The model comes in a high quality box with Onroad branding.  The module parts are held within individual expanded polystyrene trays, with the Mercedes-Benz Actros in its own box and enclosed in black foam rubber.

The review model had no missing parts or defects.

There is a small booklet which describes the assembly of the model, but there is no information about the real machine.  For the review model, the instruction manual has an error on Page 6, with the 6-axle module being connected to the adaptor with the wrong end. 


The Actros has a detailed 8x4 chassis and the tyres are different on the steering and driven axles. The cab detailing is excellent and the colour scheme and graphics are very attractive.  Behind the cab the equipment tower is detailed and there are coiled lines.  The ballast box appears to be a plastic part.  The replica tarpaulin is nicely textured. 

For the transporter a 6-line and 2-line module is included, and they are both detailed to the same level.  A separate power pack module and numerous other parts make up the set.

The rubber tyres have a realistic tread pattern and they are mounted on metal hubs which are different on the driven and non-driven axles.  Each pair of wheels is mounted on a metal support with a functioning hydraulic cylinder.

The structure underneath is strong and robust.

The edges of the modules are very detailed with tiny graphics on the sides and ends.  There are finely detailed tie-down points

Plastic connectors enable the modules to be linked at the ends, with the pinning mechanism of the real modules also utilised.  The pins are mounted in a holder like the real module.

Nicely textured plates fit into the module surface.

The power pack is very detailed.  It is mainly metal.  There are very good etched grilles and the end has a nice exhaust pipe.  End plates include light arrays.  The top surface has anti-slip surfaces and there are nicely detailed shackle points. 

The rotor adaptor is a highly engineered part.  The structure is metal, with the generator and hand rail being plastic with an excellent colour match.  Small graphics add detail.  The large ram has no visible hydraulic hoses.

The counterweights are nicely cast metal plates with some graphics and they are secured in position with silver pins. 


The Actros steering has a limited range of movement.  The cab tilts and it can maintain a tilted pose.

The modules have linked steering which is proportional on the 6-axle and parallel on the 2-axle.  The range of movement is good.

Each wheel set has sprung suspension with decent movement.  However, the extension cannot be set.

Both modules come with connectors to enable them to be connected in series. 

The steering bars on the modules are screwed potentially allowing different steering configurations to be set.

The power pack can be fitted to the ends of either module, although it looks best on the module which has driven axles. 

The rotor adaptor can be pinned at three different angles and it can be rotated a little each way.  It is possible to fit a wing to the adaptor but the review model was not drilled to allow securing pins to be fitted.

The moving counterweight slides along its track.


The Actros, modules and adaptor parts are high quality with a very high metal content. 

The paint finish is excellent and the graphics are sharp.


The set is reasonable value for a limited edition.


This is a high quality model which looks great in the colours of Onroad.  It is a great combination of detailing and functionality.


The set was released in 2018.
