MB Actros 2544 Sideloader with Reefer container


Recommended Posts

Hello everybody,

 

Today i'd like to share this MB Actros 2544 Sideloader with a Reefer container.

I made this model because in europe we see more and more this kind of construction on a straight truck.
This Hook system is actually  an old system, somewhere around the 50's, and is nowadays more commonly seen here in Europe.

The 2 big manufacturers are Hammar and Steelbro, besides these big names are more local manufacturers who make this loadsytem for companies that have their own design of this loadsystem.

That's why I thought it was a nice idea, to make a 1/24 version of this loadsystem on a straight truck.

For this model i modified the Mercedes Actros cabine is from a megaspace cabine into a smaller L-version cabine, the truck chassis is cutted behind the cabine and scratch build the whole chassis which also has a liftable tag axle.

On the front i made also an airsuspension on the front axle, Modify the V8 engine to a V6, scratch build the sideloader and the Reefer container.

The business description on the container are very thin stickers from an advertising company, who design and make these stickers according to the builder's personal choice.

Ok gentlemen, lets go to the pictures and i hope you will like this model.
