My only experience of the Joal diecast models were diggers and dumpers available at places like Diggerland, since then I have seen dozens of different models made by Joal, a Spanish diecast manufacturer.

This Joal Pegaso skip truck is number 211.

This seems to be on of the most popular at the moment along with the gooseneck dumper, number 212.

I have seen this in various colours, but mainly as this one, red cab, yellow body and blue skip and with the blue cab,  blue skip and yellow body.

Many other body options have been available using this Pegaso cab.

The real truck

The real Pegaso this truck was based on was produced around 1968 and was called the Pegaso Comet.

Pegaso (Spanish pronunciation: [peˈɣaso], “Pegasus”) was a Spanish manufacturer of trucks, omnibuses, tractors, armoured vehicles, and, for a while, sports cars. The parent company, Enasa, was created in 1946 and based in the old Hispano-Suiza factory, under the direction of the renowned automotive engineer Wifredo Ricart. In 1990, Iveco took over Enasa, and the Pegaso name disappeared in 1994.
