Comment on this model.

This model combines a DAF CF 85 8x4 Tipper and Nooteboom ASD-40-22 Trailer. 

It is in the colours of the Dutch company Oosterhof Holman.

Packaging

The model comes in a WSI branded box and is contained in plastic formers within an expanded polystyrene tray. 

There were no missing parts on the review model. 

The deck width extenders were supplied fitted with metal clips which were not bent to a U shape.  They needed to be bent carefully with pliers to enable them to be hung on the deck edges.

There is no information about the real truck or the model.  A small bag of parts includes deck width extenders and deck posts.

Detail

The DAF chassis detailing is high quality with most parts in metal and the tyres are different on the steering and driven axles.

The cab is attractive in the Oosterhof Holman colour scheme.  There are jewelled lights on the roof, and an air conditioner and a pair of good quality beacon lights.  There is a realistic number plate.

Under the cab is an engine with the Paccar name printed on it.  Behind the cab the chassis structure is good and the rear wheel arches have non-slip surfacing, and at the rear the lights have plastic lenses.

The all metal tipper body has a square shaped bottom with a multi-stage hydraulic lift cylinder.  There is a neat but large hand shovel clipped on the front and a good metal access ladder. The cover system is also metal and it has real rubber flaps at the rear which is a nice touch.

The Nooteboom trailer is very good with air and hydraulic lines and tanks detailed, and the suspension is modelled.  The tyres and hubs are good.  The underside of the timber deck is a plain moulding.

At the front the trailer drawbar is an excellent casting and the spring support mechanism is included.  Hose connections for the truck are included although they are untidy. There are fold out supports for the deck width extensions, and tiny loops have been added to support the clip-in width extensions.  The extension beams are plastic.

At the rear the ramps are very good with plastic timber inlay and a textured surface.  The locking chains look a realistic size and are nice and tight.  The rear lights are very good.

The deck has flat surface and a non slip surface on the metal deck.  The replica timber surface is high quality with tiny screw positions included.

Features

The DAF has linked steering on the front two axles and the range of movement is limited.

The cab tips forward by about 45° and is able to remain posed in an open position.

The main lift cylinder on the tipper is stiff enough to hold any pose, and the body can be raised to an angle of around 50 or so.  The tailgate opens and closes but was not free-swinging on the review model.  The cover system is engineered really well with each half able to open fully and fold flush with the body sides.

The trailer has suspension front and rear and it works well.  At the front the drawbar is sprung although care is needed not to depress the drawbar too much.  The steering of the front axle pair is very good and it rotates fully.

At the rear the ramps can be unclipped from their chains and they lower realistically.  There is no width adjustment possible.

Deck posts can be fitted is required and they fit reasonably well.  The deck width extension boards can either be left off, or hung off the support loops for storage.  Alternatively they can be fixed in position by moving the supporting brackets out.

The trailer attaches to the tipper although the connection is very fiddly.  However it is effective when the join is made.

Quality

Both truck and trailer are mainly metal and of high quality, with plastic used appropriately.

The paintwork and graphics are of a very high standard.

Price

The model is good value.

Overall

Sometimes it is a colour scheme which really makes a model look good, and so it is here.  However the quality of both the tipper and the trailer is also very high.  The only surprise is the clips on the width extension boards not being pre bent in the factory.

Impressive DAF.
