One is reminded of Busch’s model of the Smart City Coupe decorated for the Sachtleben Chemie factory fire brigade. Herpa’s little three-way tipper truck gets a modified cab – the MAN L2000 is now called LE-Class. The initial delivery will feature the range-topping Globetrotter XL cab and will be colored in red. Suggested retail price $13.50. 045872 – 2000 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter box-type van, City of Frankfurt Fire Department. Hoyer and Talke are among the biggest German hauling companies all on their own, and big collector’s themes for that reason. In the case of dry bulk logistics, both forwarders started to cooperate a few years ago, with the occasional Herpa model showing the two names.
The high, but narrow LX-cab of MAN’s TGA flagship range got its roof spoiler and deflectors quite recently, at least as part of Herpa’s line.
