SCANIA LB 140 ATS
Here the fifth model of my 1:13 LEGO model truck series.
It’s the famous SCANIA LB 140, launched in 1969 by the Swedish manufacturer during the Frankfurt Truck Exhibition. Under the cab it has the great V8 engine with 352 HP.
This great 140 was registered in Italy on 24th may 1976 and it has been restored in 2010 by the owner of ATS (a northern Italy transport company).
The beautiful colour scheme remembers the Swedish flag and it was used by SCANIA in the seventies during the international truck shows.
I looked at it on an Italian truck magazine and immediately I fell in love with it…
So at the beginning of 2012 I started to build it. After many, many hours of “hard work” in September it was ready.
