US trucks / lorries (approx. TT scale)

US trucks / lorries (approx. TT scale)

Postby Zs12 » Mon Feb 15, 2010 1:13 pm

A while ago I've purchased a small set of Ferrero toy trucks that was contained in so-named "Kinder Überraschung" (Kinder surprise) in 1998 (is it known in the US or Canada?). I'm not sure about their 1/1 originals and thus their exact scale but for me it seems to be a sufferable compromise.

(the blue 1/120 MAN truck behind is only for comparison)

Those (improved) trucks were already shown at the Iris Creek Valley RR layout by the AKTT TT-USA group.

What are the dimensions of the trucks? I am sure that one of us here would be able to crunch the numbers as compared to the prototypes to come up with an approximate scale.

Any possible source of vehicles for US Proto is a good source.

I have not seen any of those in the Kinder Surprise (Nicholle loves those things, and you really cannot separate a woman from her chocolate.......), but I will keep an eye out for that, although with some idiot children wolfing down the things so fast, there have been a number of cases here in New England of kids choking on the surprise inside.

I've discovered this old topic.

I bought these cars on Ebay sometimes ago. Is it still interesting for you?
