This truck is a Scania Streamline Highline 8x2 Flatbed with a Palfinger PK 92002-SH Loader Crane. 

The model is in the colours of the Swedish company BA-Perssons Kranbilar.  It was founded in 2001.


The box is a standard WSI style and inside the model is contained within a tray with a clear lid.  The box states the Palfinger is a 15002, but the model is marked as a PK 92002.

There were no defects or missing parts on the review model.

A generic manual is included which explains the features of the Palfinger crane.  There is no information about the real truck.


The Scania chassis is an 8x4 arrangement and it is modelled with metal suspension and transmission parts.  The wheels are very detailed with different tyres on the steering and driven axles, and they have Bridgestone branding.

The cab looks stunning with a beacon bar and light bar on the roof, and graphics on the windscreen.  There is a realistic number plate and lower light bar.

The deck is high quality with plastic replica timber in part, and edge stripes are provided.

There are two-stage outrigger beams with metal pads, and they are positioned behind the rear axles.  The pistons cannot be posed fully retracted however.

At the back the lights look good and there very nice graphics on the rigid mudflap.  There is also a towing hitch but the supplied winding handle cannot be fitted as there is not enough space.  

Small plastic container locks are provided which fit into the deck and allow a container to be posed on the deck without sliding about.

Also included are deck posts which can be fitted and mostly stay in a straight pose.

The Palfinger crane is a very nice piece of modelling.  The outriggers are two-stage, and the pistons are smooth.  A set of small square spreader plates is also included for the front and rear outriggers. 

The base section has a nice fuel tank and tiny graphics add to the realistic appearance.

The boom sections appear to be thin-wall metal, and they have a stiff profile whilst being smooth in operation.  The final boom section has a small fixed metal hook, and there is a lifting bar included.   A separate fly jib can be fitted although the modelling scale means the last sections are not telescopic.


There is linked steering on the front axles and rear axle, although the range of movement is minimal. 

The rear axle can be clipped up out of service.

The cab tilts and stays tilted at a good angle.

Separate deck posts can be added to the load deck.
Container locks can be used to position a shipping container.

The front outriggers can be stored in the upright position and can be telescoped out and rotated, and the piston lowered.  The rear outriggers can be extended and lowered.

The crane rotates smoothly and the boom unfolds with the rams having a decent stiffness, although the boom will bleed down under long extensions, or with loads. 

The optional fly jib can be fitted, or left off. 

The separate lifting beam clips on to the headboard when not in use.


This model is well made with a high metal content. 

The paintwork has a metallic-type finish and is very good and the graphics are sharp.


The model is reasonable value.


This is another very nice looking truck from WSI and the livery makes for a beautiful display piece.


The model first appeared in July 2018.
