This is a model of a Scania R6 Streamline 6x2 tractor with a Broshuis 4-axle semi low loader. 

It is in the colours of the Danish Haulage company Karsten V Olesen.


The model comes in a WSI Models branded box with a window, and it is held between plastic formers. 

There were no missing parts on the review model.  However, a beacon light and screw were detached from the Scania and were easily refitted.

There are quite a few parts supplied for the trailer, but no instructions.


The tractor is a Scania R6 Streamline 6x2 unit.  It has a very detailed chassis, with the suspension and transmission modelled.  The wheel hubs are particularly nice, and there are different tyre tread patterns front and rear. 

The cab looks beautiful in the Olesen decoration, and the excellent graphics also extend to the door mirrors.  There are two Michelin men on the roof, and the numerous lights are really good.  Behind the cab, there are coiled lines, and a plastic cabinet.  The wheel arches and diamond plating are superbly painted and highlighted. The rear lights and mud flap look great too.

The trailer is highly detailed.  Underneath, the structure of the trailer is modelled well, with the axles having the suspension fully represented, and there are hoses running to each wheel.  At the front there are a couple of landing legs.  Rear legs for the loading ramps are modelled but are not functional.

The surface of the trailer is very good with the screw holes modelled in the replica timber deck.  Details along the edges of the trailer include a white stripe and there are some detailed 'micro' graphics on the gooseneck.  On one side there is a control console box. 

The gooseneck has sides for a storage box which are metal but hard to fit well.  There are some tiny detailed graphics on the front edges of the gooseneck.

The trailer width can be extended with boards and there are also parts for securing a container, and there is a support beam and a pack of deck posts supplied.

Separate ramps are provided for accessing the trailer at the rear end, and plates for accessing the gooseneck.

A pair of width markers loosely attaches at the rear end of the trailer if required, and a couple of pull-out ones are stowed under the gooseneck.


The Scania has a steerable axle with some movement.  The model rolls nicely.

Under the tilting cab is a nice engine.

The trailer has plenty of features.  All the axles have effective working suspension with good movement, and the rear two axles are linked with self-steering and can adopt a reasonable angle. 

At the front the landing legs can be screwed down, and the marker boards stowed under the gooseneck can be slid into position. 

The trailer bed can be extended to almost double its length.  For wider loads the trailer has a load floor width adjustment and this works with tiny extension beams which can be pulled out and then replica timber beams can be laid between them.

Other configuration options are provided by the gooseneck storage.  Locks for attaching shipping containers are also supplied, as is a transverse support beam.

Loading plates for the gooseneck and rear loading ramps are also included.


This is another well made high quality truck model from WSI.

The paintwork and graphics are excellent.


The model is reasonable value as a limited edition.


This is a particularly beautiful looking model with excellent graphics and detailing on the Scania. It looks great with a suitable load.


The model appeared in September 2018.
