|Kit # 001||Review by Stephen Brezinski|
This is an all-resin model kit produced in Italy. My kit reveiwed here is from Da.Ga. Model though it is now sold under the Mister Panzer company name. Based on this, keep in mind that the directions and other features of the Mister Panzer release may be different than Da.Ga.'s original release.
I counted 32 finely crafted light amber colored resin parts and a piece of copper wire, most resin parts attached to four large pour blocks. The resin casting and kit detail looks superb and easily compares with AlBy, MarS and other noted manufacturers. The instructions are four-part exploded-view type that appear complete and easy to understand. The text of the vehicle history and instructions are primarily in Italian with a few construction notes also in broken but understandable English. I have found no information on exact specifications so cannot comment on exactness of the kit's scale. This 4x2 truck was one of Italy's first mass-produced trucks and used in WW1, and then up to 1940 according to my references. Variants include ambulance, machine shop, and fire-engine trucks (good scratchbuilding projects?). In military colors it could be gray-green for an Italian continental-European truck, tan for a truck of Italy's African colonies, or as a civilian truck (colors unknown to me). A very nice truck model I heartily recomend for the beginner or advanced modeler to resin.
