Another attempt at posting this.

As much as I complain about having no room, I keep adding big models, lol. But when this big truck could come to my home for 116 EUR incl. shipping, I had to go for it, right?

I liked the model since seeing the prototypes of it, so I was eager to add it. So, what's a big 1:18 diecast truck that's cheaper than some Norevs like? It's pretty good.

The interior is a bit budget-y and there's no engine (there's a big plastic blob instead, but you can only see that from underneath, so..). Apart from that all of the other details are there. The entire chassis is metal and as a result the model is VERY heavy. It's even heavier than the 1:18 Scania I have and that one is longer and with 8 more wheels.

The overall details are nice, the steering wheel works (it doesn't on the Scania). My only real gripe is that Z-Models have used too little or a too weak glue and some parts are a bit loose. It's an easy fix, but still.

Anyway, here are some pics, including with the other two trucks I have.

My Actros holds up well next to the diecast trucks, yay.

I'm glad it's working!! F knows what happened before!


Fantastic!!! I love the Magnum! I've got an OttO Mobile one (so sealed) I was on it as soon as it came out. I like the Scania 141 too (I have that one too) The one on the left is cool / funky. What's it made from ? Is it card? :dunno:

F**k you Photobucket.

Thanks :occasion14: I also love the Magnum and I just had to have it, especially when on a nice deal. And it just towers above everything else on my shelves like a skyscraper  :giggle:

The left one is an armored Actros 1831 which I made myself from cardboard. More of it here: https://www.diecastx...50#entry4195569

First of all, CONGRATS!!! :eusa_clap:
Yeah, that sale that CK had earlier this week was really tempting. However, I am trying to hold out for black, if I ever do buy one, these things take up A LOT OF SPACE and if trailers were more common and priced lower, OMG, many collections would be insanely HUGE!!..I suspect many marriages could run into problems with tractor trailers becoming a common theme in a many a household :giggle:
Nevertheless, It's always fun to see these behemoths lines up and featured in posts :yahoo:  Again, congrats on this add! :nice:
CHEERS! :occasion14:

Make the Best Out of Life!

Very nice, but like Dave said, will take a LOT of space as one starting to collect these :occasion14:

Thanks :occasion14:

Luckily (or not, depending on your point of view, lol) my only issue is with space and the lack of it. I can't even fit a trailer in my current shelves. I COULD fit one of those Bartolettis, if I have a spare shelf, but I don't. The CMR one is awesome, but quite a bit my price limit (yay).

As for the Magnum, I'm not sure what to do with the decals. Part of me wants to add the speed limits and the Renault Magnum logos, but I'm not sure yet.

Same.. I always wanted "just one" to add some variety to my sports-super-hypercar-heavy collection. Well, now I have three and a van and would love to add more, so... yeah  :rolleyes: :giggle:
