The tractor is a MAN TGX XLX Euro 6C and the trailer is a Nooteboom 3-axle Mega Trailer.  

It is in the colours of Universal Transport.


The packaging is the usual WSI-branded windowed box. 

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

There is no information about the real truck or model.


The MAN 4x2 chassis is highly detailed but unusually the tyres have the same treads on all axles.  They are mounted on detailed wheels with blue highlighted hubs. 

There are small beacon lights on the cab roof, and the visor has 'Don't worry, be heavy' on it.   The grille is excellent and there is a realistic number plate. On the sides there is Universal Transport fleet number, and an MAN type number.

Inside the cab, the seats, controls and furniture are modelled.  Under the cab is a detailed engine which has MAN Common Rail printed on it.

Behind the cab, the back panel has contours,  and there are coiled lines.   The wheel arches are split.  At the back, the lights have plastic lenses and there is a number plate.

The trailer is assembled as one piece. It is very detailed underneath and includes hoses and tanks.  There are partially modelled boxes at the mid point which would have been better with a solid shape.  At the rear is a box which looks like it is for loading ramps.  There are rear stabilisers for rear end loading of plant, but they are not adjustable.

The headboard has got some tiny graphics applied and there are more tiny graphics along the deck edges.  There is also a yellow stripe.  The detailing at the back is also excellent.  The deck has a mix of plastic replica timbers, diamond plated surfaces and metal structure.

Tiny plastic extension beams for supporting timber edge extensions are modelled, and there were no replica timbers included with the review model. Metal deck posts are included together with eight container locks.


The MAN's steering has a good range of movement, although it is loose so moves about when the model is rolled.

The cab tilts to a good angle and the model is stable when the cab is tilted.

Marker boards under the front and rear of the trailer can be extended or retracted.

The axles have linked steering which is a little soft and they also have looseness representing sprung suspension.

The front landing legs can be lowered by unscrewing.

The deck is extendible and telescopes out to a long length.

The deck can be configured with deck posts and container locks. 


This model is very high quality. 

The paintwork and graphics are to a very high standard.


The model is reasonable value.


This is a really nice model of the Nooteboom Mega Trailer, and it is attractive in the colours of Universal Transport.  It is surprising that deck edge beams are not included to enable a wider trailer deck.


The model appeared in November 2020.
