    the will bring the DAF demo truck from the commercial vehicle exhibition in Amsterdam
    it was the DAF 3300 ,they also present the DAF 2800 nat, a torpedo truck.
    both presented in American style
    offcourse i ordered one,
    well i ordered 4.
    one for me and for Wesley and Peter, and for a DAF geek i know from facebook, his father was a friend of me when i was just a kid

    life can be even better when they also bring out the torpedo model.
    was already made years ago by lion toys,but tekno bought lion toys, so they can bring it on the market

    I had a truck in my sandbox!.

    The owner was the owner of the house we rented. I have seen a photo of it not too long ago, if I find it when I get home, I will share it with all of you.

And after formed to cans to one of the other factories. They had 4 milkpowder factories in holland . And a soup and smash potato factory we're load with the trailer as with containers, and with the reefer trailers we load the chocolate stuff at the factory were the Nuts and the bros bars were produced.
    I had drove 2 days (4 trips a day) from papermill to them, at the last day i had about 100 nuts bars.

    Fantastic. I used these decals a lot during my years of putting together small plastic aircraft, mostly war planes of WW2 (as far as I remember).

    With tiny cans of paint too.
