I have troubles getting complete text and pictures is one message.


So here is a new try.


 


When I was in the army in 1964/1965 there were lots of these 1- tonners in use here in the Netherlands.


The official type indication is YA126, but it was called "wep" from Weapon Carrier. 


The Ambulance was type: YA126GWT.


When I was starting collecting model cars many I decided that such a DAF should be on my shelfs as well.


I have them mint/boxed but also a code 3 example.


It came to me without window frame and canopy so I made a metal window frame and a short detachable canopy myself.


As I did not like the whizz-wheels so much I gave it more realistic wheels with separate tyres.  


The "garden gate "on the front of the truck was in real military green so I sprayed mine also green.


The results were  shown already in the article with invalid text.


 


Best Regards - Krul.

Looks very good. I like the canopy and your right about the wheels. They look much more realistic. Kids won't like it though as it won't go as fast as with whiz wheels. LOL
Nice looking screws you used to put it together again. It really looks great.

Yes looks good and 1964 brings back some distant memories.
