Weekend! Could not be happier, had a horrid week.

And my beloved postman brought me happiness too!

Meet the mighty Scania, my friend!

Ever since I first came across the German H0 scale trucks, I was hooked up. Two brands, Herpa and Wiking have cooked up some bonkers replicas of the mega Euro trucks.

There is one catch here; these are pretty expensive. Living farther away from Germany (where these are abundant) and other European countries do not help either. However on a recent eBay window shopping session, I came through a German seller who had some really good stock at a comparatively excellent price. Around 4 weeks later, a parcel of three little semi trucks and containers landed at my doorstep.

Between the two makes, Herpa offers slightly more detailed replicas, but that does not mean Wiking is bad at all.

The mega truck replicated here, Scania 143M, is itself a beast, with a crazy 14 litre V8 generating 500 hp!

Any other fans of H0 (1:87) trucks here? Would love to see them!

Thanks for stopping by! Have an awesome weekend!
