DAF 3300 6x4 Truck Tractor - By Arnold Tamminga

This model from Arnold Tamminga is based on the Herpa DAF 3300 6x4 tractor. Arnold modified the suspension so the model is raised a little (the prototype is 2" higher than the standard version). An extra fuel tank is added and all air tanks and the battery box where mounted on the chassis. In front of the cabin a 'bull bar' was made from a Mercedes bull bar by Kibri. On top of the roof a heat shield (an extra roof) and an air conditioning unit were added. All the painting is done by Arnold's wife (with a small paint brush). The prototype was used in desert conditions.
