This model is a Scania 730 S 4x2 coupled with a Car Transporter.

It is in the scale of 1:64. .Markings on the model indicate it is manufactured by Keng Fai.


The model comes in an NZG branded outer box, and the model is contained within expanded polystyrene trays.

The review model had no missing parts or defects.  

There is no information about the real truck or trailer.  An instruction sheet is included that describes the main features.


The Scania has a very detailed chassis, with the engine block and gearbox visible, and the exhaust system and tanks modelled.  Wheel chocks and mud flaps are at the rear. 

The wheels look very good with different tyres front and rear. 

The cab roof has a see-through roof light, air horns and aerials.  The grille at the front is finely reproduced, the lights are high quality.  The bull bar is very nicely modelled.  The door handles and mirrors are detailed.  Inside the cab the detail is very good. 

Behind the cab the Scania name is embossed in the casting.   There are various high quality walkway surfaces.  The rear lights have plastic lenses and there are wheel chocks.  The wheel arches are metal, and Scania is printed on the mud flaps.

Under the cab is a very detailed engine.

The car transporter has a very high metal content.  Detail underneath includes landing legs and tanks and boxes, with the axles modelled simply.  The sides and roof have an excellent paint finish, and hinges on the roof are discretely modelled. 

Inside, the decking is high quality metal with textured surfaces.  Hydraulic rams for the loading ramp are modelled, but, unusually, there are no lights at the back of the trailer.


The Scania rolls in a straight line but slightly loose steering hinders a smooth path.  The steering achieves a moderate angle.  

The cab tilts to a good angle and it reveals the detailed engine.

The bull bar at the front can be fully angled down.  It can also be removed and replaced with a trim.

The transporter is functional with the landing legs rotating to support the trailer if not attached to a tractor.

The loading ramp folds down and can be extended.  It also can be raised and lowered to be level with the ground or the inside of the trailer.

The trailer sides can be opened in gull-wing fashion and can be posed opened.

The trailer has an adjustable top deck deck section.  Pins are inserted into supports to set the level desired.

Tiny plastic wheel chocks are provided which can be set in numerous positions on the top or bottom load decks.


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

The paintwork and graphics are excellent.


It is good value for what is offered in this small scale.


Although 1:64 is a relatively unusual scale in Europe, this model shows what can be achieved.  It is high quality, detailed and functional.


This model was announced by NZG at the Nuremberg Toy Fair in January 2023. It was also available in silver., and the Scania was available separately.
