The "Yellow Cab" is the second SCANIA 4-series I built few years ago.
Recently I took new fresh photos both "in studio" and outdoor. Enjoy!
About this creation
After my first 1/13 scale SCANIA - the white one - I decided to build another 4-series: a two axles for long distance routes. At the beginning of 2009 I built the yellow 124L, I was inspired by a 1/24 scale kit released by Italeri (famous scale models manufacturer).
Recently I took new shots both "indoor" and "outdoor". Also together with the other SCANIAS of my "garage".

Below: my two 4-series together; the SCANIA 4-series has been designed in 1996 by Bertone, one of the most talented and long-lived italian designer.
The cab is like my first white SCANIA. The engine unit is, on the other hand, a six cylinder inline of 420 HP. The chassis is shorter than the white 164G.
I think the model looks very fine also thanks to a set of details that mark it: additional lights and horns on the roof; extinguisher on the back of the cab; spare tire; etc…). Cab, doors and front grille can be opened.

Quoting David Roberts
This is great, built from loads and loads of real bricks: very impressive. It's the sort of thing that I would have dreamed of building when I built big Technic models as a youth.
