Volvo F12

The old Volvo F12 is one of my favorit trucks. Luckely there are/were a lot of F12 kits available. Revell made a 1/25 6x4 version, Italeri did a 1/24 4x2 and Matchbox also did a 4x2 only in 1/25 scale. All were available in the normal version and the high-roofed Globetrotter version. Check the Boxtops Archive to see all the different Volvo F12 kits. Inside you will find some ideas to do something special with your F12.

    Yes its true! It was a F series version completely assembled here in Portugal and it was the first version of F10 - 12 available.
    In Portugal, during 80's it was very usual to see in our roads with huge loads of cork. These bodyworks had a cab roof protection to allow put a part of the load over the cab, mouted in a big 12 meters chassis, and sometimes they had put and rear increase of the body work.

    Best Regards from Portugal and keep on modeling...
