This is a model of the Mammoet Mercedes-Benz Actros 8x4 with the Nooteboom Super Wing Carrier.

It is a limited edition of 750 models.


The model comes in a high quality box enclosed by a Mammoet-branded sleeve with a photo of the real truck.  Inside the box the model parts are wrapped in soft paper.

The review model had no missing parts or defects.

A uniquely numbered Mammoet certificate is also included, but no instructions were included.  However, instructions were later available for download:  Mammoet super wing carrier manual.


The Actros 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. 

There is a towing hitch at the front. 

The cab has air horns and aerials on the roof together with a nice light bar. The Actros grille is impressive and it has a fixed Bred last sign.  The many graphics are very sharp but unusually there is no fleet number on the cab.  There is a realistic number plate.

Behind the cab the big equipment tower has cabinets in front. There are coiled lines and. diamond plated surfaces at the base of the tower.  A driver is included as a separate part. 

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

The Super Wing Carrier is a heavy part.  Underneath, there are tanks visible and hydraulic landing legs.  A spare wheel is fitted and the side bars are metal.  The axle units are also metal and they are fitted with detailed wheels.

The front of the gooseneck is highly detailed and includes tiny graphics.  A Mammoet fleet number is included on the side of the gooseneck.  A tiny control panel is located at the bottom.

The trailer deck includes plastic replica timber inserts and sliding rails on top.  Highlighted bolt locations sit over the axle unit locations.  The edges have a stripe and highlighted tie-down loops.

At the rear there is more high detail including Mammoet and Nooteboom logos.

Two alternative wing support brackets are included for the front.  At the rear the complex frame and clamp is part metal and part plastic with an excellent colour match.


The Actros 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.

The trailer axle units have linked steering which is proportional.  They have large vertical displacement which can be pinned to set the trailer deck and beam high.

At the front the complex gooseneck can be adjusted to raise the height to match the rear axles.

The gooseneck has drop down landing legs which can be pinned.  The rear of the trailer has hydraulic landing legs which work well.

The trailer extends massively using the four section telescopic spine beam.  It can be pinned and locked at varying extensions.

The rear support cradle slides smoothly on its rails, and the clamp can be opened and closed, and locked.


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

The paint finish and graphics are also high quality.


It is a complex highly engineered limited edition model, and is priced accordingly.


This is a stunning heavy haulage model when fully extended and loaded with a wing.  It combines great detailing and functionality and the only challenge for a collector is accommodating the fully extended length of around 1.25m.  Of course, it can also be displayed not extended.


The model appeared at Bauma in October 2022 and was made in a run of 750 models.
