This is the Steinwinter concept truck. It was actually built to show on trade fairs.
I've seen the real one in the early 1980's on a trade fair in Amsterdam.
In the early 1980's European truck manufacturers tried to build trucks that could transport cargo in the highest volume possible. These were called "volume combinstions"...The goal was to transport as much cargo for the lowest costs, usefull if you transport cargo with takes a lot of volume, but that's not that heavy.

The famous, or notorious Jan De Rooy (wellknown for his Dakar racing hobyy) used to have a lot of volume combinations, as he had a contract with Rockwoll to transport isolation products...

This resulted in trucks with the so called "topsleeper" and the shortest distance possible between the truck and the lorry.

see this wiki article for more info about the Steinwinter truck

and, ABC magazine has also publiced a model of this truck, it came with the large trailer. The Steinwinter concept never passed European safety protocols though.....

Which came first, the Steinwinter, or the airport super tug.

Nr. 1 Build Status and Query

It's always great to see the Advent models start to appear. Many thanks, Volker!

Last year, I didn't manage to get a single one built, but I hope to at least complete this initial model this year - and perhaps more.

But before I get too far along, can someone familiar with this vehicle (Rick) confirm that the dual wheels (and, hence, the short axle) are in the rear?

And where does the rectangular structure with the letter "A" on it go? Or will that become clear when the 2 December model pops up on the Christmas Tree?

Don

Don,

You are correct, short axle box is in the rear for the rears

The rectangle with the A, is the spacer piece for the 5th wheel, it mounts to the "Nissan" looking grey section on the main body

Don,

Accordion fold the "A" piece and trim around the grey rectangle

Don (and anyone else it will be useful to) ...

If you go to the Streetpaper home page, click on Xmas 2019, then Gallery, you'll see V is putting up pictures of the built models. Which should be useful.

I wonder if he'll ever post anything in the Xmas 2018 slot?

Thanks, Johnny. I saw those and did indeed find them useful. Those images answered most of my questions so far, and Rick answered the remaining ones.

Take lots of photos of the process, because I am still lost on a substantial amount of this. Maybe I just need to study it more
