Promoting Excellence in HO Scale Vehicle Modeling

Freightliner FL8664 & Lowboy With O&K Excavator - By Pierre Bezuidenhout

This O&K excavator is made by Wiking and the truck tractor is from Athearn with a few modifications done to it  like the winch that was added. The 30-ton lowboy trailer was scratchbuilt by Pierre from Evergreen styrene with wheels from Kibri. The gooseneck is fully functional and the prototype operates on a daily basis on the roads in Pierre's native South Africa.
