Goes well in this configuration.

This is a model of a Pool Car in Mammoet colours.  Although the make of vehicle is not stated anywhere it is understood to be a Volkswagen Up.


The model comes in perspex box enclosed by a Mammoet-branded sleeve.

The review model had no missing parts.  One door mirror was very loose, but it was easily re-glued back on.


The car has a base plate with some simple detailing of chassis components.  The small wheels have decent tyres.

At the front there is a realistic number plate but no badges indicating the make of the vehicle.  The lights are modelled well.

The mirrors have a silvered surface and there are windscreen wipers.  The Mammoet graphics are sharp.

At the rear there is a Mammoet fleet number.

Lifting straps and a lifting beam are attached.


The model can be displayed in its display case, or it can be unscrewed from the base.

It can be used as a load on a Mammoet fleet truck.

The straps did not appear to be easily removable on the review model.


This is a reasonable quality model. 

The paint finish and graphics are high quality.


It is relatively expensive for a small model which probably reflects the specific nature of the model.


This is model has specific use with another IMC model, the Mercedes- Benz Arocs with 7 axle trailer and Fassi crane.   It looks good in that application.


The model appeared in October 2021.
