customer's opinion about the DAF 32 Beachcar

AboutAboutAbout
Established in 1998 our beginnings were quite humble producing simple but accurate 1:43 models ( which was a standard at that time ) but some two years later we introduced a line of classic 1:43 scale models ( Jaguar, Bristol etc. ) with more detail and photo-etched parts and mouldings which proved to be very collectable and popular amongst collectors. We use to work with a team of 2 - 4 members, depending upon workload and type of project. After all we managed to acquire a great deal of experience in modelmaking and production and soon many collegues in the field found us to start working for them too. In the year 2008 came a major breakthrough in development when we introduced a 3D CAD/CAM system for development, 3D printing and milling of master-patterns. Though models made before that were accurate enough, with the CAD/CAM system we can develop quicker and more accurate with less adjustments in the final production process. Of course we realize that this is to the benefit of customers/collectors as well. Our 1:43 models are accurate, made of resin, white-metal, nickel-plated parts, aluminum, plastic windows, decals, photo-etch and nylon rubber tires. Our models come in a transparent showcase packed in a cardboard box. Models are wholly Made in Europe and in general we only produce 100 off models worldwide.
Of course we are prepared to develop and produce models for third party customers under their own label/brand, please contact us for more details.

When you would like to order a model please contact us and we will reply as quick as possible. Our models are no mass produced goods so we strongly believe in a personal contact with all our customers to achieve the best results. We wish you a very nice day and we will be happy to answer all your enquiries.
