Name Autobus Opel "Wehrmacht Omnibus" (Item No. .908)

Type of kit Polyurethane resin
Quality All parts of the kit are very well cast of resin. The complete bodywork is cast as one piece with small flashes only and the windows covered with simply removable resin film. Unfortunately two biggest parts of the kit /bodywork & chassis/ are little deformed and have to be dipped into hot water and got in order. The kit includes also figures of driver and 6 soldiers.
