TBs TechTOC 06 - Where is the Trailer?

Apart one reference at one Italian Online shop, heard no more news about 8063 (Tractor with trailer), or whether it is a real set or not.
Since I've got to know about this online reference today, I'm now confident again, it is real.

Nevertheless received mail some time ago from Han, who made his own Tipping Trailer last February apparently without knowing about the 8063 thing, but very similar and making use of the same new TECHNIC panels.
It was based on the Slurry Injection Tanker chassis, that we also have seen here at TBs some time ago.
See it in the images below,

...or just read the full model details and get the correspondent MLcad files, at Han's website.

I guess an Italian site can get away with posting a confidential images afterall its in the wrong language! can't read it all though '...[not to be] copied or disclosed?'

I still think that it's a fake because the tractor itself is completely the same as 8284. It even has the same roof color!

The panels near the hood are reversed, so it's not the same

Also the panels are the new version ones and the color schema.

So it is different at least in some details. :P

PS: Today I was a judge into the National FLL Championship. Cool!

The tractor and trailer is real. It is set 8063. I am eyeballing it in the new 2009 Australian Lego catalogue right now.

Here is a scan
