Brand - Reference

REE CB-023 et WB-356

Type

Tractor, mobile loading ramp and semi-trailer “Kangourou”

Comments

Another production reminiscent of the Jouef of our youth, but much finer of course. There were several types of manoeuvre tractors; REE chose the same as the old Jouef. Would they play on nostalgia?

I have more than a doubt about the apple green colour of the tractor and the ramp, too loud for my taste. See the beautiful pictures of Undertaker on forum-train.fr. I’ll have to seriously weather all this. A silvering at the back of the tractor headlights also lacks.

Like the previous ones, the semi-trailer is proposed with an additional long stand for parking.

Modifications

The tractor cab was stuck, but so slightly that I thought it was removable. Putting a driver in it was not difficult, but he is a bit too high. The cabin is fixed with a little white glue.

Jack rod coated with graphite for a more metallic look.

History

See the page on Kangourou wagons.

Pour le décor de la photo (voie noyée), j’ai utilisé des vieux tabliers de pont Jouef sur lesquels j’ai collé au double-face des bandes de carton épais.
