Transporter Vehicle
Produced 1985-2007
Number MB145 (with rocket) MB146 (with plane)
Scale 1:150
Space Transporter green

The Transporter Vehicle is a wide, low, three-axle truck designed to transport either a rocket or a small jet plane. Limited interior space and dark-tinted windows hide the lack of an interior.

Though the casting includes brackets for both the rocket and the plane, individual models were sold with either the rocket or the plane, not both. Packaging often labelled the truck based on its cargo, e.g. Rocket Transporter or Plane Transporter. The model itself is labeled Transporter Vehicle on its base.

The rocket separates into two sections for transport. Its base fits into the truck bed for launch or display.


The Transporter Vehicle has appeared in the following 1/150 scale versions:
