Brekina / Starmada 91371


Mercedes-Benz MB Trac 800 1975 agricultural tractor


Model presented in a large moulded plastic box, whereas the classic Brekina case would have been sufficient…

Unpainted bodywork. The undercarriage is very detailed, with the transmission shafts and axles shown in detail. Here is a photo.MB Trac undercarriage

The front wheels are articulated independently of each other, allowing them to be steered to some extent.

The windows are flush. Attachments: headlights and lights, running boards, steering wheel. Mirrors are supplied separately, as are other unidentified parts.

Very accurate to scale.


  • Mirrors fitted quite easily and without glue. The box accepts the model with its mirrors fitted!
  • Front wheels locked in a steered position using a very small amount of Patafix stuffed into the joints.


The Mercedes MB Trac agricultural tractor was produced from 1972 to 1991 (the Trac 800 from 1975 to 1980). It was based on the Unimog platform.
