This build came about by converting and scratch building, the old Italeri Volvo F6 Fire ladder kit. I had bought this a couple of years ago at an exhibition together with other second hand kits for little or nothing. I did not know what to do with the kit, until recent. So, it is no more a fire truck but an old beaver-tail machine transport carrier. I see most enthusiast convert old trucks into other types of themes to suit their intensions. This might carry a lot of load but ,we’ll consider this a private farmer or truck company wanting to have easy access to transport small and medium size machinery to their destination without renting.
The diesel tank was taken from another truck model as the original would not accommodate the space. So I took a cylindrical tank, cut 1/3 of the tank and made it to fit the space. I got the idea for a smaller tank from a photo of the Scania model that inspired this build.
The rear angle chassi C-bracket was taken from another truck model that I used to mount on his truck, after some minor modifications.
I borrow the photo of the Italeri fire ladder Volvo kit from another thread:
