Kanson MAN 40.604 Truck Tractor - By Andy Park

This photo from Andy Park is of his MAN 40.604 as operated by Hong Kong based crane and heavy haulage company Kanson. It is operated mainly as a tractor with Goldhofer 8 axle bogie for carrying concrete beams and bridge sections in the former UK colony. The chassis is a 6x6 Bastian resin item and the cab a standard Herpa Evo2000 low roof version. The paint is a home mix of several Humbrol blues. The Kanson name is made from separate waterslide lettering and the Chinese script on the front of the cab is done with a fine brush and, to be totally honest [according to Andy - webmaster], terrible!
