1:50 scale Volvo FH Globetrotter XL 540 (6x2) solo tractor unit, customised in the 50 years’ anniversary livery of well-known Aberdeen based operator Dyce Carriers Ltd.

The models have been produced exclusively for Search Impex by WSI Models as a certificated Limited Edition (205 pieces).

With the head office in Aberdeen and three further depots in Scotland (at Invergordon, Dalgety Bay and Grangemouth), as well as one in England at Poole, today’s operation runs a fleet in excess of 80 commercial vehicles.  This comprises a mix of Volvo, DAF, MAN, Renault & Mercedes units and a variety of trailers, including extendables, flats, curtains and stepframes, as well as a number of self-load crane vehicles.  Dyce Carriers specialises in serving the transport needs of oil and gas service providers, construction companies as well as local engineering companies and loads can vary from small, urgent consignments, through to groupage, full loads and even helicopters!

The Volvo FH (on which the model has been based) is the very latest addition to the fleet and has been liveried to mark the occasion of Dyce Carrier’s 50th anniversary in 2023.  The Volvo model (which follows on from the 50th anniversary DAF XG+released in January 2024) comes complete with a personalised registration plate, JM23 DCL, in recognition of dedicated Company Managing Director, Jason Moir.  The humble origins of Dyce Carriers go back to 1973 when, joint founders, David & Jean Moir started the Company with a great deal of ambition and a Morris Minor van.  In the early days, Dyce Carriers operated out of the Moir’s family home, “Tilly Brig”, in the Aberdeenshire village of Dyce  – hence the naming of the first Golden Truck (the DAF XG+) in honour of where it all began.  However, it’s fair to say the naming of the Volvo Golden Truck - “Hwange” (pronounced “Wang-Ghee”) - has its origins a little further afield!  Named after the Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe, the name pays homage to Jason’s wife (and also Director at Dyce Carriers), Candice, who was born in Zimbabwe.

Models, available from Search Impex, are priced at £136 (including UK delivery & VAT).  For details of availability of this and other models, collectors can visit the Search Impex website at www.search-impex.co.uk or call on 01332 873555.
