Looks great.


The tractor is a Scania R Normal CR20N 6x2 Twin Steer, and the trailer is a Broshuis 2Connect Combi 2+3-axle.  

It is in the colours of Meijering Transport of the Netherlands.

Packaging

The packaging is the usual WSI-branded windowed box. 

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

Included with the model is a certificate with a unique serial number which adds to the collectibility.

Detail

The Scania tractor has a very detailed chassis with different tyres on the driven and steering axles.

The cab has a basket on the roof, and a nice light bar and headboard. There is a realistic number plate and high detail provided by tiny graphics including one in the corner of the windscreen. The Scania is attractive in the Meijerings colour scheme.

Under the cab is a detailed engine, and twin chrome exhaust pipes look impressive.

There are coiled lines and excellent diamond plating surrounds the fifth wheel, with excellent wheel arches also.  

The Broshuis 2Connect Combi trailer is made up of 2 axle and 3 axle sets.

They have similar construction with detailed axles and structural frame.  There are also detailed control boxes, and very nicely detailed light bars at the back.  The wheels are highly decorated in two colours.

The metal containers are excellent with ribbed surfaces and the graphics are applied over the ribs expertly.  At the back there are highlighted locking bolts and many excellent graphics.

A very nice touch is that the numbering of the containers is different on each one.

Features

The Scania has linked steering with a limited range of movement.

The cab tilts forward to about 45 and can pose in the tilted position. 

A decorated cover can be fitted on to the fifth wheel.

The trailer units have axles with sprung suspension.  The two axles on the front unit have a small steering movement which was stiff on the review model,  and the last axle of the three axle unit also has a small steering movement.  Landing legs can be lowered, and the two axle unit has optional support legs for when parked.

The trailer can be configured as a five axle rigid trailer or as separate units.

The containers can be left off or fitted.  When fitted they are secure and do not slide about.

Quality

This model is high quality with little plastic used. 

The paintwork and graphics are excellent.

Price

It is reasonable value.

Overall

This is a highly detailed and attractive model, with flexibility in how it can be posed.
