Comment on this model.

This model is a Mercedes-Benz 4x4 Unimog U 400 series which is configured for Agricultural use.


This version of the model 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 large wheel hubs are plastic.  The tyre design is the same on all wheels. 

At the front the lights are painted. The Mercedes-Benz logo is modelled well and there is a plate with nice graphics.  The cab is detailed with rigid lights, mirrors and number plate assemblies.  The number plate is a dummy.  There is an equipment attachment point.

Textured steps lead up to the cab and 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 is plastic.

Fuel and water tanks look good with highlighted filler caps.

The body is metal and the drop sides are detailed and non-functional. 

The rear lights have good looking plastic lenses and twin boxes have very fine grille texturing.  There is also a towing hitch and equipment attachment points.


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

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

It can be posed towing a trailer.


This is another quality Unimog model from NZG with a high metal content.

The finish is very good and the graphics are sharp.


It is fair value.


As another special purpose vehicle this Unimog is interesting, and is an attractive colour.


The model first appeared at the Nuremberg Toy Fair in 2016 and was available in this livery in January 2016.
