Comment on this model.

Mercedes-Benz introduced a new version of the Actros truck in June 2011 and this model is of the 4x2 FH25 GigaSpace with a three axle refrigerated Kogel semi trailer.

It is in the colours of Wolter Koops, the Dutch international transportation and logistics group that was founded in 1961.


The model comes in an NZG branded box and is contained between a pair of polystyrene trays held in place with a clear plastic former.  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 Actros tractor is heavy and is detailed underneath in metal with the steering being functionally modelled as a compromise.  The fuel tanks impress, the tyres are wider on the front axle and the wheels are detailed.

The GigaSpace cab looks particularly good in the colours of Wolter Koops and it has a realistic number plate.  The grille at the front is finely reproduced and the lights are high quality.  Air horns, wipers and two-tone mirrors look good and the door handles are nice too.  Inside the cab the two-tone finish is also pleasing. 

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

The Kogel trailer is simply modelled.  It is metal and very heavy with good wheels and there are a couple of spare tyres.  The landing legs are fixed metal parts, and the box under the chassis is very plain.

There is a Carrier refrigeration unit at the front and it has realistic looking grilles.  The rear end has the rear doors lightly delineated and the lights are decent.  The livery looks very impressive.


The Actros rolls well and the steering has a very good range of movement.

The trailer also rolls well and when separated from the trailer it stands just not quite level on the landing legs. 


This is a high quality metal model with very little plastic.

The paintwork and graphics are very good.


The model is reasonable value for money.


NZG has produced an extremely solid good looking model and it is easy to recommend it.


This version of the model first appeared in Winter 2012 as a limited edition of 300 models.

A very good representation of a Wolter Koops truck.
