One of these just arrived, and I thought I'd scale compare it to some 40k minis.

I dig it! Wonder if other trailers are available?

Wow! I really like the new one! Link says limit 20 per sale. Ok, I can handle that ;)

Inso – A CN171 arrived yesterday. I will try to test fit it together and put some pics up soon.

Here is a similar quick post about the CN-171 Miltary Truck

Why do you tempt me? I'm always looking for little things to add to the flavor of my games, and the front of this truck is great.

Might switch out the dumptruck bin on the back. It's too familiar. Might kitbash a replacement.

But the model definitely is a good find.

The model is Meng's "cartoon" version of the truck, just like their fighter jet models, with exaggerated cab/cockpit sizes and tiny wheels.
In the movie, the trucks were huge, as big or bigger than Russian MAZ trucks.

This one link looks a little less "Cartoonish". !/100 is near as dammit to 15mm though.

joedog05 Jul 2020 2:21 p.m. PST

The three trucks that are the "cartoonish" models (Q series) are trucks that would be giant compared to vehicles we commonly see (think of mine trucks whose tires are 15-20 feet tall), so are workable with 28/32mm and great with 25mm.

gregmita205 Jul 2020 2:33 p.m. PST

Yes, these are huge trucks.
The cargo truck is 56.6 cm long, and at 1/100 scale that means it's 56.6 m long in real life. For a comparison, a HEMTT cargo truck (M977A4) is 10 m long!

Ooo, didn't realise it was 1:100, but not at that price seriously!
