The Ros range of agricultural and construction plant models from Italy is being distributed in the UK by John Ayrey Die-Casts. ...
The range has undergone something of a transformation, with many ‘High Fidelity’ models alongside the previous more toy-orientated items.
There is a choice of classic tractors, including Landini, Same, Steyr and fiat models; modern tractors, including Lamborghini, Hulimann, Same, Deutz-Fahr and New Holland; modern implements and trailers; combines; and telehandlers, all in the traditional model farming scale of 1/32.
The plant models include excavators and loaders from New Holland, Liebherr and Hitachi; Ammann rollers; Sennebogen and Cattaneo cranes, in 1/50 or 1/32 scale, plus tower cranes from Raimondi, Comansa and Saez in the smaller 1/87 scale. Various fork-lifts and other items, plus Iveco Daily vans and pick-ups complete the range, which will be welcomed by farming and construction model collectors, as the standard of finish and detailing is very good, with working parts and metal tracks.
