Comment on this model.

This model is a Mercedes-Benz 4x4 Unimog U 400 series which is a flexible utility vehicle with all-wheel drive ability.

It is fitted with a Schmidt Stratos Spreader and Snow plough.


It comes in a NZG branded box and inside it is held within a plastic display case. 

There were no defects or missing parts on the review model.

There is no information about the model or the real vehicle. 


The Unimog has a detailed 4x4 chassis which is modelled in metal, and the wheel hubs are metal too.  The tyre design is the same on all wheels.

At the front the lights are painted and the Mercedes-Benz logo is modelled well.  There is an attachment plate for the snow plough.

The cab is detailed with rigid lights, mirrors and number plate assemblies.  Textured steps lead up to the cab and the graphics are detailed and sharp, although the tiniest ones are not legible.  The vehicle type is shown as a U 430.  Inside the cab there is a Mercedes-Benz logo on the steering wheel and the centre console is finely detailed with switches.

Behind the cab the exhaust and air intake look good.  The fuel and water tanks also look good with highlighted filler caps. 

The rear lights have good looking plastic lenses and twin boxes have very fine grille texturing.  There is a number plate and towing hitch.

The spreader has a detailed metal hopper with a plastic canopy.  At the rear the spreader looks realistic and hoses add detail.

The snow plough is very good with highlighted bolt heads on the lower edge and working rollers behind.  The attachment structure is nicely detailed.

The plastic display case is good quality and it includes a name plate which denotes the Unimog as a U 430.


The model can be displayed in its display case, or removed by unscrewing two securing screws.

The Unimog rolls well and the steering works well and achieves a good angle.

The snow plough can be removed or angled to either side, but not raised or lowered.

The canopy on the hopper can be removed, and the ladder at the rear lowered.


It has a high metal content and is a well made model.

The paint and graphics are very good.


It is a fully priced model.


This is another interesting Unimog variant by NZG which looks very good on display.


The model first appeared at the Nuremberg Toy Fair in 2015 and was available in July 2015.
