I've spotted this truck for sale:

Would anything like it have been seen at any time on the streets of America? If it's truly 1:120 scale it seems like decent value, especially with free shipping.

It's a European truck, because of the cab-over-engine design and the axle arrangement of the trailer. Bruder had a more suitable series, the Mini Mack 1:128. They are in size a little bit bigger as real 1:120.

Be careful. I purchased this model a while back and when it came it was 1:87 which was clearly stated on the box. I found the same problem with some double deck busses listed as 1:120 and were also 1:87. A friend who modelled in HO thought they were big even for HO scale
