This is a bit of a SCOOP for truckblog. This model has only been advertised on the Tekno website and through a small email list from Kevin at Astran.
Tekno are building the model and there are only 350 being built, with Tekno keeping 150 for their model clubs. When TEKNO put it on their web page, it sold out in 12 hours becoming their quickest seller EVER!!!! This is quite surprising considering the flash modern stuff they do. It just goes to prove that Astran has a massive following. The model has been spec`ed up by Mr Astran himself, Ashley Coghill, so you can be sure of its authenticity!! It was decided that as Astran never ran any 140 Scania`s that were in the best red/yellow sign written livery, we have made the model as a 111.
The model will become collectors’ items due to the rareness and will only appreciate in value, delivery wil hopefully be in July with a guide price of £150.00 per model, which will come with a numbered certificate and a picture of the original truck.
If you are interested in one of these highly highly collectable models, in 1/50 scale, then be quick to get your name on the list. Email email@example.com and make sure you mention truckblog when you do.
