Impressive on an SPMT.
Large load.

This is a model of a Coke Drum with a nominal weight of 250 tons.  When set up it is 50cm long.


This model box is plain black with an outer paper sleeve.  Inside the drum is wrapped in soft paper and sits in expanded polystyrene trays.

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

There is no information about the real coke drum and no instructions. 

Detail and Features

The coke drum is a heavy piece which appears to be made out of resin with some plastic parts.

The detailing is very good with bolt heads detailed in many places.  The casting of the part is excellent with sharp details throughout. 

The finish is also very good with uniform grey paint and the graphics are sharp too.  Some of the graphics contain spelling errors, but it is not known if these accurately reflect the signage on a real coke drum.

Four plastic support stands are included.

The lifting points work very well and that includes tailing-in lugs at one end.  The coke drum weighs around 2 Kg, and the lifting points give confidence during a lift.

Quality and Price

This is a high quality load. It is reasonably priced given the size and weight.


This is a very good load which can be displayed on its own, on a SPMT or hung from a big crane.


The model first appeared at the end of 2016.  It was also produced in Construction Orange and Iron Brown.
