MODELS ■  Nooteboom Redline Series MCO-PX met Scania 8x4 (scale 1:50) The models of Nooteboom are available in various scales, from 1: 160 tot 1: 50. Especially in scale 1:50 Nooteboom has a wide range of models. Nearly every version from the extensive Nooteboom programme is also available in a 1:50 scale model. BIGGER Little ones get bigger. The popularity in demand for scale models has now also reached the scale 1:32. This scale is often used for models in the agricultural world. Nooteboom has granted licences to MargeModels and AT-Collections to produce Nooteboom vehicles in scale 1:32. The first model in the new 1:32 scale is a 3-axle MCOS-48-03EB semi low- loader with steering axles and double-folding ramps from MargeModels. The trailer has a height-adjustable load floor and the model is identical to the original to the last detail. This trailer is, among other things, suitable for the transport of construction machinery, access platforms and agricultural machines. For this model especially, new Volvo tractors in scale 1:32 have also been developed. A 2-axle or 3-axle tractor is available. There has been so much interest that the first series sold out ■  Nooteboom Redline Series Megatrailer met Scania 6x2 (scale 1:50) very quickly. In the meantime a Nooteboom Sprinter service bus in 1:32 has been added to the programme and is available now. Various Mercedes tractors in this scale will come on the market too. EXPANSION OF THE COLLECTION Later this year AT-Collections will introduce the ASDV-40-22, a 4-axle drawbar trailer. At the Spielwarenmesse in Nuremberg a prototype was already on show. As a result of its great success MargeModels has by now already started the next project for Nooteboom. This model is expected to be available towards the end of 2019.  ■ 45
