Nice work Kurt, first time I see this one!! Again, the Shuco -and beer truck versions- look just a bit more refined then the Tonkin ones do, I had Tonkin first and did not get the others, yours has better deal IMO. Looks sharp in your company colour and the trailer to go with it!

Volvo VNL780 - the truck tractor is by Kamlun, slightly overworked with scratchbuilt mirrors and wipers, rims for the front axle are by Italeri, for the rear axles by Promotex, the tires are by Promotex. the trailer is a modified Herpa curtainside jumbotrailer. The decals are by A-Line and Decalprint/Germany. The company is fictitious.

I must confess, that I don't know any pics of such a trailer in Northern America, but I think, if one is searching long enough, he can find them.

Jim, the American Volvos have so many different sleepers for the same hood and driver's cabin.

Volvo VNL300 - the daycab for the truck tractor is built from a VNL780 by Kamlun, the wheels are by Herpa and Italeri; the dropdeck trailer is by Promotex (shortened to 43 ft.) with wheels from the stepvan by Atlas.The load is a telescopic wheel loader by Norev. The decals are by Decalprint of Germany (the
company is fictitious).

Volvo VNR300

I added the new Volvo VNR300 by First Gear to my fictitious Transportation Company. It's only slightly modified.

Nice addition to your fleet Kurt! I have one of those Volvos coming to me and it promises to be quite nice. By the looks of your pictures it is! I like the tridem trailer.

Volvo VNL760

The new Volvo VNL760 by First Gear serves also with my fictitious transportation company TransGlobal Logistics. The model is only slightly reworked.

Nicely done Kurt!! Your fleet has entered the new era I see, no more coloured tractors, they have gone white with the green accent and skirting on the van trailer! Realism here is the detail that counts!

Volvo VNL Daycab

At the end of last year I planned to build a Volvo VNM200, consisting of a driver cabin from a Kamlun beer truck with a shortened hood of a VNL420 by Jacobs Models (JJG gave me the permission to use it, because I wanted to make some castings later).

 But then I decided to build a VNL Daycab at first with the long unmodified hood. I added a chassis by Promotex with wheels consisting of rims by Italeri/Promotex and tires by Rietze. The airdam is scratch built. Trailer and Container come from Athearn;: the Container is a bit weathered.

Volvo VNL Daycab MOLSON

Some weeks after JJG had posted his older Molson truck, I found this container on ebay and decided to build a transportation truck for it. The chassis is by Herpa, the driver's cabin is from a Kamlun beer truck with modified hood by Jacobs Models. The front wheels are by Promotex/Rietze, the rear wheels are by A-Line. The trailer is by Athearn, the Container is of unknown origin. The transportation company is fictitious.

Nice job, great idea on the bulk tank, looks good to your modified tractor and another one in the fine fleet. It has quite a few trucks in it by now. The great thing about the hobby is it doesn't have to be realistic......just has to look that way and convincing!
