That looks like an excellent kit of a very rare (in the USA) subject. All the parts appear to be molded accurately and with great detail. And those tires are spectacular.

very interesting and well thought out. impressed especially by the placement of the fragile parts inside heavy sprue shields. lots of detail as well; looks like a real builder's kit.

Neat looking car..I wonder if it shared any parts w/ US GM cars of the era.

I just hope they get around to scaling up their 1937 Packard Twelve (Stalin had one with armored doors and bulletproof windows, thus its relevance to WWII armor modeling). But it's one of the newer 35th kits, so it'll probably be a while before it makes it to 24th. They seem to be following a similar schedule as they did for the original 35th scale kits.

Wow! That looks like a terrific kit. I had no idea it even existed.

I'm surprised to see how they molded the rear springs to the frame; probably makes locating the rear axle easier.
Now let's see: lowered, deep maroon paint job, white Carson top, skirts, Caddy sombreros, DeSoto bumpers...

Way cool! Will it be available here? Pricing?
Their previous 1/24 offering of the Typ G4 was available here through a few channels, the cheapest was eBay. Look to spend $40-55 depending...

I can see that in Dunkelgrau, with staff pennants on the front fenders .........................

That is really cool. I am impressed ICM is trying out the 1/24 market. It looks like a complicated kit - that's not bad - but, man, all those seperate body parts…and the thin chrome strip/hood hinge…I could see myself snapping that in half just getting it off the sprue!
What? No up top?
All the door handles - inside and out - are separate. That's a great touch.
Two part steering wheel is cool and looks delicate and in scale.
Cool straight six with, it looks like, a lot of tiny separate parts.
If I see one, I'll probably be forced to buy one...

This one has been on my 'Wanted List' since it was announced at the German Toy fair,

Seriously, a Chrysler/DeSoto Airflow conversion wouldn't be tough . . .
