With this model MAN has closed a gap that has existed for a long time. It is exclusively available by Man for now. The HAK 15.200 4x4 with removable construction skip is made to typical Conrad quality standard. It has all the functionali- ty of the prototype and is ready for the model construction site. The decade correct color scheme is a clever choice. Hopefully, the con- struction skips will be available as a separate item soon.

and is very attractive. The model is fully functional as per prototype. The only thing detracting from the superb model is that the logs con- tained in the load have been glued together. This makes it impossible to simulate the loading process.
There are now four different track sets available: Double link with a width of 11 mm, 13 mm single link and triple links in the widths of 13 mm and 18 mm. Each set has 100 links with length of 5 mm. They are packaged as follows: 2 x 30 links, 2 x 10 links, 2 x 5 links, 2 x 3 links and 4 single links and some bolts. These sets are optimal for model constructers.
The 854K is used in mines to maintain the roadways and despite the fact that the unit is identical to the 992G wheeled loader, Norscot has taken pains to re-work the unit. The hand rails are made from plas- tic and the steps are extremely fine. The same can be said about the ra- diator.
