Finally a 1:35 full resin model of the current DAF YAD4442 4 ton truck in use by the Dutch Army (Koninklijke Landmacht). Photos below are from the prototype still being worked on. PE and clear parts still to be put on.













It's been an 8 month process to get this far, hopefully ready by the end of the year! Hope you like it!

The producer is a company called Scalemasters. This model is exclusively available via me (as also shown on their website). For order and details please email me. Cost 135eur. In spring 2020 the DAF Ybz 3300 wrecker will also come out in 1:35 followed by some more typical Dutch vehicles not previously available as models at all or in 1:35.

Kind regards, Robert

Would be nice to see some of those in Braille Scale. Den Bels does some older DAFS in 1/72, so I live in hope.

First prototype is finished and will be improved on more than 50 points. Price will be 171 euros and nearly sold out allready (only 150 made). We hope to have it ready by June/July depending on improvements and how the Corona will affect production.
