This is a model of a Nooteboom 4-axle OSDS semi low-loader designated the OSDS-58-04V where the 58 represents the total capacity of the trailer in tonnes and 04 indicates that there are four rear axles.  These trailers are flexible in use, and are designed to carry loads such as construction plant and crane sections.


The model comes in a Nooteboom branded box which is generic to the OSDS series.  Inside, the model is contained within an expanded polystyrene tray, with the truck held between clear plastic formers.  There were no defects or missing parts on the review model.

There is no information about the real trailer, and although there are quite a few parts supplied with the model, an experienced collector will soon work out where they should be fitted.


The tractor is an Iveco 6x2 unit and its smooth lines are modelled well.  Underneath, the detail on the chassis is really good, with the suspension and transmission looking convincing.  The wheel hubs are excellent, with the rear axles having different hub styles, and there are different tyre tread patterns on the driven axles.

At the front the cab has subtle grille detailing, and the lights have lenses.  Other details are nice with door handles, number plates and door mirrors all looking good.  The cab has the unique reference number for this model which is T-004. 

Behind the cab, exhaust pipes discharge at ground level and they look realistic.  Diamond surfacing covers the rear of the tractor between plastic wheel arches.  At the back the lights have individual plastic lenses which look very good.

The trailer continues the high quality, high detail approach.  Underneath, the structure of the trailer is modelled very well.  The axles are very detailed with the suspension fully represented and there is hosing running to each wheel.  At the front there are a couple of landing legs, with the handle of the landing legs having a touch of blue paint which is a nice detail.  The surface of the trailer is top quality with an excellent representation of a timber surface which has screw holes modelled, and the metal surfacing is textured well.

Details along the edges of the trailer are really nice with an accurately coloured yellow stripe and tiny tie down points modelled although they are not separate loops so cannot actually be used.  On one side there is a well detailed control console.

The gooseneck has connectors for lines from the tractor, and the deck includes the offset aluminium strip which is present in the real trailer.  The unique reference number for the trailer is written on the gooseneck and for this model is OPL-003.  On the front of the headboard two spare wheels are attached although their weight tends to make the headboard lean forward in its fixings so collectors will want to make sure it sits properly.  A tool box can also be fitted behind the front headboard.

The trailer ramps are separate plastic parts which have good shape and structure.  A separate pack of metal deck posts is provided and these plug into holes in the deck edge and enough are provided to use as an alternative to the headboard if required.  Also included is a boom support which can be fixed in place using a couple of the deck posts.  This part is nicely trimmed with replica timber on the top surface.

A couple of ramp plates are included to allow driven access up to the headboard area, and a pair of width markers attaches at the rear end of the trailer if required. 


The tractor unit has a steerable front axle but the steering lock is very limited, and the cab tilts smoothly to a nice angle revealing a detailed plastic engine.

The trailer has plenty of features which will please collectors.  All the axles have effective working suspension with good movement, and the rear two axles are self-steering and can adopt a very good angle.  At the front the landing legs can be screwed down, and the marker boards stowed under the gooseneck can be slid into position.  At the rear, a couple of hinged support legs can be rotated down if required.  The ramps can be added for loading and when not required are stored under the trailer bed in a compartment which has opening doors on both sides of the trailer.

The trailer bed can be extended to almost double its length, and there is a sliding cross beam too.  For wider loads the trailer has a load floor width adjustment and this works with tiny extension consoles which can be pulled out and then replica beams can be laid between them.

Other configuration options are provided by fitting or omitting the deck posts, and the same goes for the headboard.  The ramp plates for loading the gooseneck can also be added or left off as desired, as can the rear width marker boards. 


The overall quality level of the model is very high.  The castings are very good as is the detail level.  The use of plastic has been carefully considered to add detail and the quality of the plastic is such that the look of the model is not compromised.

The paintwork and graphics are of a very high standard.


The model is very good value given the quality, features and detail.


This model is another very high quality WSI model and the feature level on the trailer offers a wide range of possibilities for the collector to display the model as desired.  Overall, the model is outstanding.


The model first appeared in December 2009 and was made in an initial run of 300 models.  A three axle version of the trailer was made as
