Diecast model in scale 1/43.
This Mercedes Benz L6600 Tanker was exclusively made for Esso Germany as a promo item.
Some of these models ended up with specialist model dealers like ourselves though...
You will find amazing detail on this heavy model.
About the original: When the Daimler Benz Gaggenau plant stopped the production of the L6600 in 1959, it signaled the end of one of the company's most successful lorries. Up to that date 13,753 L6600's were manufactured and enjoyed great popularity in the growing long-distance traffic branch. The L6600 was not only beautiful but also one of the heavier, bigger and more powerful post-war lorries to be constructed.
It is some 12cm or almost 5 inches long and comes in a nice display case to protect it from dust and greedy fingers.
