They have made a number of models:

It seems like Hornby Italia has taken over the site pocher.com which has not been reachable since 2002.

Some interesting links here:

Look like I may have some sought after gems and rather rare! I'll get some photo's but moving the models from their storage space could be awkward they're pretty big, heavier and more delicate than you'd expect. :thumbup:

The detail is really good, so big is the scale that most of it it screwed and bolted together. Door catches work, windows go up and down, fifth wheel clip works, steering moves, sunroof comes out etc etc.

If you can tell me how to downsize my photo's i'll post a load up. My new camera produces too many pic thingy's?

You can downsize photos by using tools like Irfanview. This tool can downsize many photos in one batch.
