3. Quality:

Casting quality is very good, with parts on a thin carrier film (as usual for resin kits). Minimal clean-up is to be expected.

4. Contents

The set consists of 4 railroad wheels, 4 attachments for the wheels on the hull and a tow bar + stowing attachment.

5. Instruction sheet:

Very minimal instruction sheet consisting of 3 drawings. Together with pictures found on the weblog http://fbminis.blogspot.com/ these should be sufficient for the conversion.

What is not mentioned is that with the parts you can either build

a) a regular wheeled jeep with or without tow bar

b) a railroad jeep with railroad wheels installed and ordinary roadwheels stowed on the hull

c) a railroad jeep with ordinary roadwheels installed and railroad wheels stowed on the hull

6. Decals and painting options:

Nihil. There is one picture of the real vehicle on the weblog.

7. General Impression:

Very good

8. References

Nihil, apart from the info found on the FBMinis weblog.


With thanks to FBMinis for the review sample.
