The tractor is a DAF 2600 and the trailer is a Nooteboom 1-axle ODU Low Loader.   The DAF 2600 was manufactured between 1962 and 1974.

It is in the colours of Nooteboom's Red Line range.

The tractor is made by WSI and the ODU trailer is marked as manufactured by NZG. It has the number 581 and it was first introduced as a model in 2006.

A limited edition version of 100 models will become available in Van Grinsven livery with a Scania 141 exclusively for Nooteboom Shop at the end of July 2019.

Packaging

The packaging is the usual WSI-branded windowed box. 

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

A Nooteboom Certificate of Origin is also included.

Detail

The DAF chassis is a 6x2 with the transmission and suspension modelled to a high standard including leaf springs on the front axle.  The wheels are very detailed with different tyres on the steering and driven axles.

The roof is nicely shaped and has two types of light.  The headlights and grille look realistic and there is an accurate number plate.  There are large windscreen wipers and nice old-style mirrors.  The Nooteboom graphics on the cab are very sharp.

Behind the cab there is a large metal frame and  coiled lines, and tanks have filler caps and an exhaust.  At the back there are nicely decorated mudflaps.

The trailer is a robust metal model.  It has a simple structure underneath and I nicely modelled gooseneck with sharp Nooteboom graphics.  Fold out outriggers are modelled within the casting.  The plastic replica timber deck has a texture.

The rear axle is modelled well with well detailed wheels.  Sharp graphics are added at the back..

Features

The DAF steering is notched with a moderate range of movement.

The axle pairs can be opened up to allow rear end loading of the trailer deck.

The trailer can be extended and two pins are provided to lock it at various extensions. 

Quality

This model is very high quality. 

The paintwork and graphics are to a high standard.

Price

The model is reasonable value for a limited edition.

Overall

This is an interesting historic model in the Nooteboom Red Line series.  This is a high quality model and looks great with a suitable vintage load.

Footnotes

The model first appeared at the Nuremberg Toy Fair in February 2019, and was available from April 2019.
