MB Eurocab 2544 with 20" Flat Rack Container

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody,

 

Today i show u one of my older builds, a Mercedes Benz Eurocab with an 20" traler and Flat Rack Container.

The payload is a block of quick release mooring hooks, what is used in big ports to mooring large sea vessels.

I build this project about 2 or 3 years ago and used the Italeri MB aurocab kit as a base kit.

From this kit, i made a SK Eurocab of the 2nd generation instead of the first generation what the kit provides.

Details like front bumper, dashboard, seats, center console in the cabine, steering wheel , mirrors and exhaust have been modified to the right era.

The extra modifications of the truck are the Telma Retarder, twin stear axle and the super single tires.

After the truck was done, i started with the trailer what is a CNC kit, that I have completely converted into a Netam trailer with movable axles.

The Flat Rack cointainer and the morring hooks are scratchbuild.

I hope you find this a interesting model.

First some construction pictures.......

Hi Herman, top job mate, inspirational work, great idea for the load on the container, I was watching these things working on the dock side last Friday when we left Portsmouth on the ferry, looking forward to seeing more of your work.

Cool as always. Only the yellow straps are too clean. Maybe the driver´s got a new set. Other than that, perfect.
