This tractor model is a Mercedes-Benz Arocs MP4 SLT 8x4 with Ballast Box.  

It is in the colours of the Belgian company Van Egdom


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 chassis is highly detailed with different tyres on the front and rear axles.  They are mounted on detailed wheels. 

There are two Michelin Men on the roof and there is a light bar with beacon lights.   There is a large Convoi Exceptionnel  sign and the Arocs grille is excellent.  A realistic number plate, chevron graphics and Belgium printed on the mud flaps completes the detail.  There is also a towing hitch.

Inside the cab, the seats and controls are modelled.  Under the cab is a detailed engine.

Behind the cab, the equipment tower ihas small tanks are modelled and there is non-removable ladder.   There are coiled lines and a textured plate. 

At the back, the lights have plastic lenses and there is a number plate and a towing hitch.

The ballast box is a metal part with nice decoration at the rear.  The tarpaulin cover is realistically modelled.

There are excellent graphics across the model although the horizontal dotted line was not at the same level front to back.


The linked steering has a small range of movement, and it was a little loose on the review model.

The cab tilts to a moderate angle, and can be posed tilted.

The ballast box can be attached or left off.  Standard WSI trailers can be connected to the fifth wheel if desired.


This model is very high quality. 

The paintwork and graphics are to a very high standard.


The model is fully priced as a limited edition.


This is a very good looking heavy haulage tractor with some pleasing details.
