Comment on this model.

Mercedes Benz introduced a new version of the Actros truck in June 2011 and this model is of a 4x2 FH 25 GigaSpace.

It is in the colours of HT, which is the Hauser Truck and Trailer Rental Company based in Germany.


The model comes in an NZG branded outer box with the model contained within a Perspex display case.  The plinth has the truck name nicely printed and the mirrored top surface adds to the look of the model.

The review model had no defects or missing parts.

There is no assembly to do, and no information about the model or real truck is supplied.


The model is securely held to the base of the display case with two screws.  It can be removed from the base.

The Actros tractor is detailed underneath in metal with the steering being functionally modelled as a compromise.  The tyres are wider on the front axle and the wheels are detailed.

The GigaSpace cab is nicely modelled.  The grille at the front is finely reproduced and the lights are high quality, and there is a realistic number plate too.  Overall the paint job is excellent with sharp graphics.  Air horns, wipers and mirrors are included and the door handles are convincing.  Inside the cab the two-tone finish is good. 

Behind the cab there is a coiled air line, and the various tanks are realistic with colour coded filler caps.  The rear lights have plastic lenses and there are wheel chocks.


The Actros rolls well. 

The steering is good with a reasonable lock being possible.

It can be displayed inside the Perspex case or removed by undoing a couple of screws underneath the base.


NZG has produced a high quality model that is heavy as it is almost entirely in metal.

The paintwork and graphics are very good.


The model is good value overall.


This is another very nice looking Actros model and the display case makes it an unusual collector piece.


This version of the model was a Nuremberg Toy Fair 2013 release as a limited edition of 300 models.
