Series: Agricultural machinery
Collection: CARS&TRUCKS
Brochure: Herpa Cars & Trucks 2013 / 01-02
Item: 076470


This HO scale farm slurry trailer (Güllefass-Anhänger) is one of 17 models in the Herpa Agricultural Machinery series. It complements the historic Deutz D40 and McCormick D-326 tractors.

Historical Agricultural Trailer Slurry Storage-jar
Herpa packs this model in a form-fitted plastic tray held inside Herpa's red end-opening carton with a cellophane window. The model is completely assembled.

The model is well molded. It has slight mold seams along the tank although these can easily be dismissed as weld seams such as I have seen on farm tankers. Otherwise it is free of molding flaws.

Detail
The nozzle, bogie wheel and rear bumper are separately applied. The tires are rubber or soft plastic and have good tread detail.

Paint and finish
It looks like the tank is painted while the rest is molded in color. A sharply printed circle-25 is on the back.

Conclusion
I am not certain what a Historical Agricultural Trailer Slurry Storage-jar is or what era it is a part of. Regardless, this simple review of a simple model shows that it is a neatly made and nicely detailed model. Herpa also makes one in N scale.

It will look enhance any farm or construction scene you put it in. Recommended for farm dioramas, railroad layout lineside scenes, and collectors of farm machinery.

Please remember to tell vendors and manufacturers that you saw this model here - on RailRoadModeling.

I'm a professional pilot with a degree in art. My first model was an AMT semi dump truck. Then Monogram's Lunar Lander right after the lunar landing. Next, Revell's 1/32 Bf-109G...cried havoc and released the dogs of modeling! My interests--if built before 1900, or after 1955, then I proba...
