IBG's remarkable 1/72 models rival bigger scale and allow adding impressive ground vehicles to collections of 1/72 aircraft. This truck is a beauty and brings me to consider gravitating to 1/72.

A little late noticing this one but I am certainly impressed with this offering from IBG. Matthew, your review and images are informative and concise as usual and I thank you for your effort. From reviewing the Fugimi German Military Truck and comparing the two, your reviews offerings to the modeller appear superior, especially when one considers it sells for about half the price! As you mention it may not be quite up to the latest standards but you get a fairly decent kit for the money. Thanks again for this review.

Cheers,
--Jan

I blame this degree of detail on the Jordan Highway Miniatures of the 1960s.
