The editorial team of this blog can barely describe the miniatures of the Scania V8 730 S as such; especially when they are viewed as a set with the matching trailer, which - as the truck itself - come from the production of the label NZG. Proper 1.24 meters of parking area are to be kept clear in the showcases for the Scania tractor unit V8 730 S and its matching trailer from type Lohr together as a set in scale 1:18! An absolut highlight from diecast, whose quality standards are at least as high as the cargo that weighs on the role models of these models every day! Space can get tight, but the set offers the opportunity to present the miniatures of the same size in a fascinating way!
The black painted truck Scania 730 S offers an openable service lid, functional doors as well as an interior that, at first glance, fits a luxury sedan more than a truck: details everywhere on the dashboard, the seats and side panels! Pure wholesomeness: Even the armrests are adjustable; the roof spoiler too. The front axle is steerable. If the collector tilts the driver's cab forward, he gets a glimpse of the meticulously reproduced eight-cylinder engine, which has an output of 537 kW / 730 hp in the original. Until recently, it was the strongest version in which the V8 with its 16.0 liter displacement was delivered. NZG has copied Cibie high-beam headlights, main headlights, running boards, cables, rear-view mirrors and signal receivers in a filigree manner; as well as the lock on the fifth wheel.
The suspension chassis and the two attached brake wedges also enjoyed the undivided attention of the mold makers as well as the spectacular replication of the trailer: This fascinating combination with the item number 1026/51 weighs 10.3 kilograms. Its fully movable drive-on ramp enables the collector to load modelcars from his favorite brand on the Lohr model; in the case of the pictures attached to this article with miniatures from Porsche. The set that the editors are presenting in this article is, as mentioned at the beginning, suitable for arranging your collection in a different, active way: Is a presentation of your favorites in the format 1:18 on this car transporter not something completely different from parking them just for themselves in a showcase? An idea that inspires us to think! You, too?
