This tractor model is a MAN TGX XXL Euro 6C 8x6 with Ballast Box.  

It is in the colours of Baumann.  At the time of its introduction in 2019, this tractor was claimed to be the most powerful in Germany.  It is a conversion by Maurer of a standard factory truck and is 6 wheel drive.

The model was commissioned as an exclusive limited edition by Fritzes Modellbörse with 150 models made.

Packaging

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 but a collector certificate is included which states that the production run is 150 models.

Detail

The MAN 8x2 chassis is highly detailed with different tyres on the front and rear axles.  They are mounted on detailed wheels with red hubs. 

There is a light bar on the cab roof, and air horns on one side.   The MAN grille is excellent and there is a realistic number plate. On the bumper are Baumann Maurer graphics, and there is a towing hitch.

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

Behind the cab, the equipment tower is very good.  There is a fan within a mesh enclosure on top, and small tanks are modelled.  The cabinets have the handles detailed and there are coiled lines.   There are textured walkways and wheel arches. 

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

The ballast box is an all plastic part with an excellent colour match to the metal parts.  The tarpaulin cover is realistically modelled.

Features

The steering has good range of movement, although 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.

Quality

This model is very high quality. 

The paintwork and graphics are to a very high standard.

Price

The model is fully priced as a limited edition with special tooling.

Overall

This is a detailed model of an impressive tractor, and it looks good in the Baumann colour scheme.
