Jason has one which he found on Ebay about five years ago.

Just had a look at his picture of said model and it seems to have Orange wheel rims with definite Grey tyres.

I won't post picture here until he gives permission.

Truly a fantastic find for any collector and a huge find for those (like myself) who love Major Packs! Thanks for posting the photos again.

Yes, I agree what a great model in those colours.

My trusty notes have recorded that Nigel Cooper also has a model with green tractor unit but with grey painted (not silver) trailers and pretty sure it had a blue dolly as well.
Perhaps if Nigel reads this thread he may confirm with a photo.
