Michael - It would seem you may know if this kit was the only kit produced by Lassen Project. Are they still available? If they did make the 1953 Series 401 with the closed cab and snowplow, how do I get one? Any info would be greatly appreciated.
Also, your build is beautiful. I plan to do light weathering as well, no rust though. I'd also like to place some type of load in the back, agricultural in nature. Bails of hay maybe? These were originally designed/built for agricultural purpose. Any info or advise on the build? Any fit problems I should plan for when building?
Lassen Project is out of business since 2002. Klaus Lassen had planned a closed cab version of the Unimog and a Kaeble truck. As far as I know the master of the closed cab version was ready for production it was never released. This little kit was to expensive and to special for normal modelers. It was the time were Revell/Germany had there Buessing an Krupp trucks available and they also failed. I my opinion he was a modeler and not a business man, and thats the reason why he failed.
This little kit is my favorite kit, well engineered lots of details and a fun to build. As far as I can remember there were no fitting issues with this kit.
