This truck is a Scania Streamline 8x4 with a Palfinger Hooklift System and a 40m Container. 

It is a limited edition model in the colours of the Danish company Kims Container Service.

Packaging

The box is WSI branded, and unusually comes in an outer shipping carton. Inside the packaging is the standard WSI type for a truck model. 

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

There is no information about the real truck, Hooklift System, or model.

Detail

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.

The cab has the distinctive front grille and colour coded door mirrors. The Kims graphics are very nice and sharp.

Behind the cab there are fairings between the wheels.

The Hooklift is modelled well, and the twin rams have plastic jackets with Palfinger graphics.  

The large container has a nice ribbed structure with solid ladder rungs at the front, and detailed door locks at the rear.  There are two moving rollers at the rear.

Features

The front axle has limited steering, and it is linked to the rear axle. 

The cab tilts and stays tilted at a good angle, with the engine visible underneath.

The movement of the Hooklift system is very good, and it includes a telescopic section, and any intermediate pose can be held.   The tipping function for the container is also very good.  However, the pistons in the rams are a little short for some reason so they pull out of the jackets at the extreme end of movement. 

The container cover is removable, but unfortunately the rear doors of the container do not open which restricts the posing possibilities somewhat. 

Quality

It is well made with a high metal content and appropriate use of plastic. 

The paintwork is very good and the graphics are sharp. 

Price

The model is reasonable value for a limited edition.

Overall

This is an attractive limited edition Scania model.  It has nice functionality although the lack of opening rear doors on the container reduces display flexibility.
