Promoting Excellence in HO Scale Vehicle Modeling

DAF 3300 High Cube Combo - By Arnold Tamminga

Arnold tells us this is a typical European combination, because the regulations govern  maximum combination length, the cab is as short as possible and the spacing between truck and trailer is reduced to a minimum (prototype spacing about 25cm = 10 inches). Van Swieten is a Dutch company owned by Nedloyd. The truck is a combination of Herpa components. The cab was cut behind the door and the "top-sleeper" (the sleeping compartment above the cab) was made of plastic sheet.
