The tractor is a Scania 6x2 and the trailer is a Nooteboom 3-axle Mega Trailer.  

It is in the colours of Nooteboom's Red Line range.


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. A Nooteboom Certificate of Origin is included although the numbers for the tractor and trailer on the card do not match those applied to the model.


The Scania 6x2 chassis is highly detailed and the tyres have different treads on the driven and steered axles.  They are mounted on detailed wheels with red highlighted hubs. 

The high cab roof has air horns and and nice lights with lenses.   The grille is excellent and is enhanced by tiny badge graphics.  The bumper has chevron graphics and there is a number plate.  On the sides the Nooteboom model fleet number.  The door handles are also really nicely modelled.

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

Behind the cab, the back panel has nice shaping,  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 and wheel chocks.  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 is 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 Scania's steering has a moderate range of movement, and the model rolls very well.

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 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.  It is a combination of high detail and functionality.  No doubt many versions of the model will appear in company colours also.


The model first appeared at the Nuremberg Toy Fair in February 2019, and was available from April 2019.
