We are pleased to announce a second new release this month, the all new 1/34 scale Freightliner M2-106 with Water Tank body!

The Freightliner M2-106 is an all-around performer and has been designed to get any job done. The truck has a 66,000 pound gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) that makes it a versatile medium-duty truck that supports a wide range of bodies and chassis-mounted equipment, such as a dry goods van, a concrete pump, and of course a water tank. Freightliner Trucks works closely with truck equipment manufactures from a variety of industries to create vehicle configurations that are efficiently upfitted to reduce time and cost during development.

The Freightliner M2-106 was designed with aerodynamics in the forefront, most noticeable in the design of the sloped hood, and comes standard with Cummins B3.7, or a powerful 350 hp Cummins L9 engine with manual or automatic transmission option. This truck has wheel cut of up to 55-degrees, a set-back front axle, and swept back bumper for superior maneuverability in tight situations.

The interior of the M2-106 cab features an ergonomically designed driver's area with a dash containing easy-to-read gauges and controls that are well within reach, because the comfort of the driver is a primary key to productivity. Freightliner's vocational t rucks offer numerous safety features that help keep the drivers save and productive.

Our new 1/34 scale diecast metal replica of the Freightliner M2-106 has been paired with a water tank truck which is based on a Curry Supply on-road water truck design. This new replica model features an authentically designed diecast metal cab and chassis, an accurately detailed cab interior, authentic 4,000 gallon water tank body detail, and component parts including water line details to two front bumper mounted spray nozzles, one side mounted spray nozzle, and two rear mounted spray nozzles. Additional features include a rear mounted hose reel, a fill pipe extending to the top of the tank, a ladder, and undercarriage pump details. Numerous chrome-plated accessories include the front bumper, grille, tanks, steps, side mirrors, exhaust stack, headlights bezels, and air horn.

This new 1/34 scale diecast metal replica measures 10.5"L x 3.5"W x 4"H and will be ready to put into service in your collection later this fall.
