Tempo Matador box van 'Seefische'
High-speed lorry carrying fresh fish
This one is a true WIKING classic! This is because of the included promotion of sea fish, which serves as a remembrance of scores of models the traditional model makers adorned with a WIKING advertisement that was popular even five decades ago. The Tempo Matador box van gives off the aura of a typical WIKING product thanks to the striking lettering and the catchy logo mark it puts on display. Thanks to new WIKING moulds, the traditional model makers were able to create a 1:87 scale version with an impressive level of detail. Here, too, WIKING was able to delve into its own history, as the Tempo Matador transport model first appeared as a wire axle with high-side flatbed, then with low-side flatbed as a roll axle. And of course, the 1:50 still illuminates the WIKING story today, having once been supplied as an industrial model for the Vidal & Sohn Tempo plant in Hamburg-Harburg.
