        I really love those "torpedo-trucks" - this is what I remember from my childhood years. There is one in Trondheim, operating out of the part of the port called Brattøra. I think it belongs to Stokke Transport.

        It's a Scania I think.

        I know the son of the owner, he was a trainee at the ferries a while back.

          There aren't european truckbuilders anymore that build torpedo's.
          Those what are build now ,are build by costums companies.
          The iveco strator is an Australian model,but with the narrow cab, a Dutch garage build them now here too but with the wide cab.
          Scania don't build them either anymore, a Dutch company designes a new torpedo model for the latest scania model

        placing the name plates behind al the windscreens,but then i see the michelin mascottes arn't white



        a lot of plates

            This is really amazing. Which scale is it? 1:43? I looked back, but i think you did not mention it.

              Thanks Ralf.
              can't remember if i had mentioned earlier, but the scale is 1:50.
              the most factories use that scale, Tekno ,WSI ,Conrad, Lion Toys, Joal as for the biggest factories, smaller factories also use that scale.
              siku was 1:55 but stepped over to 1:50.
              a little manufactory in England Smith models but others also made them in 1:48, but that is because thwy made them in inches and recalculated it is 1:48
              French companies use the 1:43 scale, which has as +point that cars models al made in 1:43, so trucks and cars fit together.

                bought today a model of a flower ecport company.
                i already had the manufactory model,but this is from a modelbuilder and is more correct.
                nevertheless at some points is the tekno model better than this one,but overall this one compares the Original better

                    Great! A model of your own rig would be awesome to see! Can't wait to see the results! Happy building Thijs!

                      at this moment the kit will be thrown on the pile of other kits.

                    I am just wondering. Do you have the GigaSpace configuration? Or was it the BigSpace? I remember some discussion - wait, i found it, yes you have the GigaSpace...

                          Yep, I know what the name Thijs is short for, and I recognised the M.C. Finch as being you, but I was intrigued about the Holland, Michigan bit. So I Googled it, and found you hadn't made it up - for there it was. Clever old chap, aren't you!
                          By the way, a bird lays eggs, but Holland lies in Michigan. Don't mind me correcting you, but many, many English people forever get this wrong, so be a good Dutchie and put them all to shame!
