The original model becomes a sideloader after more than 50 years

The traditional model makers have taken their 75th anniversary as an opportunity to reveal an original model that up to now has only existed in WIKING’s archive - and they are doing so to please more than just those intimately familiar with WIKING’s history. WIKING founder Fritz Peltzer consistently devoted his creative power to advancements in the field of logistics and picked up on innovations that exceeded ordinary lorry combinations. One such innovation was the prototype of the Lancer Boss Sideloader, which the staff of the traditional model makers put on the desk of their boss as a 1:87 scale model as early as the seventies. The original operated in the area of long-goods logistics and was used for loading containers, pipes and construction timber. The feature that made the original model especially appealing - and even spectacular on the 1:87 scale - to the WIKING head was the lateral orientation of forklift mast and fork. It took roughly five decades for the model construction to finally come to fruition and produce the model in time for the anniversary celebrations. Chassis and glazed cab have, naturally, been modelled precisely after the original. All of the hydraulic movements the former sideloader was able to perform can be imitated. The model offers options for creating entirely new scenes, providing stimulating ideas for WIKING fans and diorama builders alike who work on this scale.
