This is the fifth model of my 1/13 truck series: the SCANIA LB 140 "ATS" - 1976.
About this creation
Here the fifth model of my 1:13 LEGO model truck series.
Its the famous SCANIA LB 140, launched in 1969 by the Swedish manufacturer during the Frankfurt Truck Exhibition.
This great 140 was registered in Italy on 24th may 1976 and it has been restored in 2010 by the owner of ATS (a northern Italy transport company).
The beautiful color scheme remembers the Swedish flag and it was used by SCANIA in the seventies during the international truck shows.
I looked at it on an Italian truck magazine and immediately I fell in love with it
So at the beginning of 2012 I started to build it. After many, many hours of hard work in September it was ready.
Under the cab it has the great V8 engine with 352 HP.
wow! you did an amazing job on this rig! I love that you put a pic of the real truck as reference, it shows how close you achieved to take yours, some details like the wheels, cab shape, even the bib are impressive, color scheme, scale, are all perfect, excellent replica, bravo!
