SCHUCO 1/43 HANOMAG R40

This detailed scale model of the Hanomag R40 (for 40 hp) features an open cab and second fender mounted seat. A highly collectable model from Schuco includes it's own presentation case. The roots of Hanomag go back to 1835 when George Egestorff founded an engine works in Hanover, Germany. It wasn't until nearly 100 years later, in 1924, when Hanomag introduced tractors and other vehicles. Over the following years, Hanomag has been acquired by many other companies such as Massey Ferguson, IBH and most recently in 1989 Komatsu.

For those who collect agricultural models, this is a 'must'. After development work, production of this tractor started in 1942. This model is a very accurate rendition, as one has come to expect from Schuco, with a very aceptable level of detailing. Shop here
