Dansk Specialtransport M-A-N 50.602 Heavy Haul Tractor - By Andy Park

Andy Park calls his latest model "basically just a herpa 4 axle M.A.N. tractor chassis but with the front axle/cab of an older Herpa F2000 grafted onto it to make the 5 axle 50.602 model." The real truck was operated until recently by the Danish company Dansk Specialtransport. Andy added the two scratchbuilt tool lockers, the cab was painted with Humbrol aerosol metallic blue, and the frame satin coal black with yellow highlights. The excellent decals from TL decals finished it off before a quick coat of Humbrol gloss varnish.
