DUTCH - Bridging Equipment (Part Four)

Update from Shed HQ where I have got some more work done on some of the Dutch Bridging Units.

First up two units of the DAF Treadway Bridge in two sections towed by a H&R BM60 Leyland DROPS with Container and a H&R BM34 1 Ton Land Rover.

Next up is the DAF YGZ 2300 Bridging Unit using H&R BM61 Leyland Flatbed and Scotia BM0046 Alligator Ferry Ramp.

The three bits that are used, the small triangular piece comes with the H&R Leyland Flatbed.

I glued it to the end of the Scotia Container to represent part of the launching mechanism.

The three vehicles of 105 Pontoon Bridge Company

Next up I have to try and work out how I am going to make this? Any suggestions using existing 6mm models? German MAN 7t Truck done by H&R maybe have to scratch build the rest.

Thanks for looking.


  1. Those pontoons look very similar to the Skytrex TPP Heavy pontoon bridge (M775) sections.

    1. Nice one Steve, hadn't thought of those. They should work perfectly as you say they look very similar.
