This is a model of the Mammoet Mercedes-Benz Arocs SLT BigSpace.

It is a limited edition of 500 models, and is one of the first truck models developed by IMC.

Packaging

The model comes in a high quality box enclosed by a Mammoet-branded sleeve with a photo of the real Scania.  Inside the box the model is held in high quality foam.

The review model had no missing parts or defects.

A uniquely numbered Mammoet certificate is also included.

Detail

It has a detailed 8x4 chassis with detailed steering. The transmission components are modelled and the tyres are different on the steering and driven axles. The wheels are very detailed and the hubs are highlighted in red. 

There is a towing hitch at the front and another at the rear. 

The cab has air horns and aerials on the roof together with a nice light bar. The Arocs grille is impressive and it has a fixed Convoi Exceptionnel sign.  The many graphics are very sharp and there is a fleet number on the cab.  There is a number plate which is accurate to the one on the truck shown in the picture on the box, although it is located differently.

Behind the cab the big equipment tower has lights and tanks on top, and the exhaust looks good too. There are coiled lines and a nice grille on one side. Diamond plated surfaces are at the base of the tower and there is a fine gauge ladder on the side.

At the rear the lights have lenses and the mud flaps have graphics. 

A driver is included as a separate part.  It appears to be on the small side and is wearing a helmet so it does not look quite right in the cab.

Features

The Arocs has reasonable steering movement available on the front axles. 

A separate fifth wheel is provided so the tractor can accommodate trailers with a larger kingpin.

The cab has opening doors.  These work well, and open to a good angle.

Quality

This is a high quality model with a high metal content. 

The paint finish and graphics are high quality.

Price

It is a limited edition model, and is priced accordingly.

Overall

It is nice to see IMC develop its own truck models after relying on Tekno trucks for so long.  This one is very nice quality and the opening cab doors are something different compared to most models of this type although the tilting cab ahs been sacrificed.
