Promoting Excellence in HO Scale Vehicle Modeling

Volvo VT880 & VT800 Truck Tractors - By Peter Rabel

This pair of Volvo VT truck tractors from Peter Rabel were built from Schuco die-cast models. In the background, the Volvo VT880 comes directlyfrom the box. In the foreground, the Volvo VT800 day cab needed some more work. Peter removed the sleeper and roof and then added a new roof from Kibri. He also had to shorten the chassis and cut down the interior of the cab to fit. The fuel tanks, exhaust stacks, and horns are from Herpa. The trailer of both trucks are from Promotex.
