I spent a whole weekend on the premises of the Bickel-Tuning company in Rheinau to photograph and measure Gerd Körber’s Phoenix-MAN on site. Because there were no drawings of this racing truck.
But before the angular MAN was finished as a model, the Mercedes forward control vehicles from the NG series drove around the Nürburgring. It was the time of the racing trucks, but you don’t see or hear anything about them anymore.
This phase of model development at Revell was also a good time. And during the heyday of truck racing events, we revellers were also in the Eifel with a tent and exhibition pavilion.
