I need some help!!!!!!
« on: November 16, 2009, 02:57:28 AM »
Hello guys,

For a couple of weeks I am joining the "truckology 101" topic from Jerry Austin!!!!!
Today "plastictrucker" (reply 2857. page 191) came with a very "rare" one!!!!!
That one "reminds" me on another very "rare" one, but I can't "remember" anymore the "name" of that one!!!!!
For the "experts", it had the "frame and engines" build up like a "Nicolas Tractomas" but it had the cab of a DAF-2800 series!!!!!
I first "thought" it was build by "TRABOSA", a Spanish manufacturer of very special "heavy haulage" trailers, but couldn't "found" anything yet!!!!!
So I hope you can help me to "solve" this "mistery"!!!!!
Greetings,

The DAFman, Leo

Awesome photos guys!

Looks like they built both an 8x4 and 8x8 version. I wonder what they had for power? I want to know the tires sizes. The tires on the 8x4 look like they could be 12.00-24 and the 8x8 could have 14.00-24. Either way those are some mean looking trucks!

Bonus Autocar too!

Hey Bowtie,

Many thanks again for those pictures and that link!!!!!
After the "broke-down" of my computer after a very heavy thunderstorm, I have "lost" some very good "stored" links!!!!!
And you know, Jan van Wees is one of the "leading" person's in "heavy haulage" in Holland (and far out-side also)!!!!!
He has so many "links" on his own site, that can keep you "busy and happy" for a very long time!!!!!
And at least with these pictures I can "finish" my modell of that truck in 1/87-scale!!!!!
I have for years about the same picture as Thaddeus added on this "thread", I believe it was in "Truckstar" or in another magazine and you can't "see" the details from the left-side!!!!! That "picture" was also in some "modell-building magazines", but I "lost" those ones!!!!! "Borrowed" by a "friend" and NEVER came "back" again!!!!!
Looking forward to see and hear more from you!!!!!
