I picked up one of these Nu Ray trucks from the local hobby shop for about $50. The rear trailer is removable. Truck carries 3 cars, rear trailer 5. Ramps on trailer are moveable.

Possibly a tenuous link, possibly an excuse to post Car Porn, but I believe the cab of the Mercedes car transporter is featured clearly in this video of the W196 GP & Streamliner.

It has an odd charm about it that is certainly missing from many of the models.


Computers. They'll never catch on.

After a quick repaint, service and general tidy up it runs like a dream. Sadly it is soooooo long that on anything tight the trailer drops off the track but it has enough power to keep going despite that. The strange double cog gearing inside the tractor gives a real impression of big lorry.

stu.hopkins on ebay makes some nice 1/32 trucks. Not cheap though.
