This is the Kingsize Ergo tipper in 1:1 in Malta 2007, just another photo I found searching the net.Of all the countries in the world Malta probably has the oldest truck,bus and car fleet, with many 60s to 80s classic British designs still giving reliable daily service to their owners
nice tipper, another picture to save :thumbsup:
the gray painted base plates were also hard to find for some reason, like the 29 mini and the 56 pininfarina.
the grill/base variation shows up on the models that share base plates like the 32sf tanker. the leyland logo is a little different too. these two models are with and without the block behind the cab.
The real Ergo cab design was in production from 1968 to 1978 a fitted to about a dozen different chassis/motor combinations by Leyland (who also owned AEC and Albion brands).So the badge designs and the headlamp/grill/front bumper arrangement evolved in that period.A very noisy truck to sit inside and not very comfortable by modern standards.......
