Thanks for the review Jim. This is a pretty esoteric subject. Kudos to IBG Models for producing it. It will make a great diorama center piece.

Cheers,
Charles

I was disappointed on my recent trip to Berlin that Motag Modelbau didn't have either kit in stock, as they are a welcome addition to the soft skins area. It sounds like the AM interior is a must-have for making the most of the kit, but I'm sure there are ways to integrate it into a dio with the doors closed.

A very good review, Jim, it really gives me a feel for what I would be getting.

Like most Eastern European kits, a little crude in some areas. That being said, this looks, at least on the outside, to be a great looking truck. Just think how many dios in the past have had to use the Opel Blitz because nothing else was around. This opens up a whole new world of possibilities. I really hope other manufacturers take note of what modellers want and follow suit. Would love to see a Ford, Chev, Renault, Lancia or Citroen truck in plastic..and maybe another German one, like a Henschel or something. Woo hoo! Good times!
