This miniature of the Case 1455 XL represents one of the standard tractors with all-wheel drive that used to be manufactured in Neuss – you might say the last generation, a true modern classic in Germany’s history of agricultural machines! This type is one of the largest tractors built at the time by International Harvester. It was IH’s response to the changing requirements in German agriculture, which required more horsepower and therefore larger and more powerful tractors. The last 1455 XL was completed on 20 December 1996. It was therefore the last tractor worldwide designed by International Harvester, and was built for a further eleven years after the merger with Case. WIKING has miniaturised the Case version that had put an end to the geometric split in the radiator grill with the typical IH look and had featured a bonnet that was more integrative and, more importantly, more contemporary. This red and black design line ornamenting the uncluttered radiator grille allowed the 1455 XL to fit in seamlessly with the entire range of Case tractors. This guarantees that 1:32 enthusiasts as well can enjoy attractive combinations from the period between the 1990s and 2000s, especially given that the 1455 XL is still used on many farms today. A large number of farmers simply do not want to let go of this classic, which has been serving them as a reliable companion for decades.

Along with the bonnet and the front weight with trailer coupling, the chassis of WIKING’s 1:32 model is crafted from die-cast zinc. These elements are joined by the cab made of plastic, which has the same glazing as the original and is fitted with matching lighting elements at the front and the rear. The cab is also equipped with doors that open towards the rear and that can be moved both on the left and the right, clearing the view for a glimpse into the cab. The license plate on the rear of the cab is included, as are the matching lighting unit and the inserted tail lights. WIKING has miniaturised the characteristic exhaust pipe on top of the bonnet along with the air scoop out of plastic. The same material was used for the ladders and wheel rims on either side. Other plastic elements form the rear coupling, but also the front radiator grille with inserted lamps. The steering of the front axle operates with great precision, guaranteeing a tight turn radius and keeping the steering wheel from turning along. Better yet, the rear coupling can be moved as well. Affectionately referred to by enthusiasts as “Brüllrohr” (roaring pipe), the gleaming chrome exhaust - an accessory option that could be retrofitted on the original – is included by WIKING at no additional charge. WIKING was able to capture the look of the Case brand with a true-to-the-original imprint of a detailed ornamental trim. The lettering Case International can be seen on the sides of the bonnet, while the type lettering 1455 XL graces the doors on the cab.
