since 30 years i work in the transport and logistic branch. as a child a lot of times first i plaied with my matchbox trucks and then with my "wiking" models. so i became a great truck fan and collector of model truck. my favorite wiking truck was a mercedes 1620 with the "new" cab over.

When i was 21 years old i got the driver licens für great trucks. And i was proud when i drove a 38 tons truck/trailer. this truck was "only" a FIAT, but it was fantastic. 

Sometimes i have a chance to drive a truck an weekend. So i became a collector of Model truck in scale 1/87. You can visit the Modelcollection at  

The companie i worked has restaurated an old truck. Here are some pictures:

That Büssing VI GL is as rare as anything (most died somewhere on the Eastern Front) but some may find it a strange post unless there is some US connection?

Not that I mind - only saying...
