New Wiking Unimog is World-Class

Wiking is the world’s oldest operating manufacturer of 1/87 scale plastic vehicle The company was founded by Friedrich in 1938 and began producing HO vehicles in 1948. Many of the we now take for granted, like windows and interiors, were introduced by Wiking. With 250 models in their current they are one of the leading producers of scale vehicles in the world. is also the world’s leading of 1/:160 scale vehicle

In recent years, Wiking has facing stiff competition, notably from Busch Busch has built on the program it when it took over DuvГ©’s PralinГ© in 1993 by models of increasingly sophisticated Busch’s 49100 Mercedes-Benz C-Class sedan is a good of just how far the bar has been raised in a few years.

The newest models from show the company is fully to the challenge. The Wiking 372 01 33 Unimog model released in December, is nothing short of outstanding. It is by far the detailed Unimog model has ever produced and is superior to the models I have seen Roco and Kibri. In addition to a of molded and factory-assembled body and detail, a separate sprue rear-view mirrors, trailer and high-mounted headlight/turn signal for the modeler to attach; completing a nice model to add to a display or Since the U400 will be in the U.S. by Freightliner, the Wiking is fair game not just for collectors, but for modern-era railroaders to remain prototypical. Due to their towing capacity, Unimogs are for light switching and maintenance by American railroads and several rail system operators in America. Unimogs are also in use for

snow removal and fighting fires.

The Wiking 372 01 33’s prototype is the version of the Unimog introduced by in the Spring of 2000. The Wiking has a yellow cab and silver-gray load on a black chassis. The interior is in a different shade of gray. As you expect, the molding is sharp lots of fine detail holds up well even magnification. Headlights and turn are printed since the bumper-mounted of the full-size Unimog do not lend to the more typical clear

Mercedes-Benz Unimog The interior is nicely-done the Vario-Pilot panel on top of the dashboard. the small Telligent shift box is located on the console. These are because they are two of the key features of the new Vario-Pilot allows the instrument and steering to be shifted for either or right-hand-drive operation. The Telligent allows automatic up-or-down to compensate for varying loads and speeds. Wiking seems to begun taking particular of interiors. Speaker grilles and often omitted by Wiking are becoming common items on new products. The tires are worthy of notice. The tires on the Wiking 372 01 33 are in their own right and have the tread pattern reproduced in This is something I have not before on a Unimog model any manufacturer.

Whether you’re a fan, or a collector who admires a well-made model, I highly adding the Wiking 372 01 33 Unimog to your collection. You can order from Crescent Station or (Tom Kaseler also has the models in the PC box) or your shop can order it from Imports (Wiking’s recommended distributor). Prices I’ve run around $19.00-$20.00 except On-Line which wants
