This is my first “real” post here on the forums, minus a very brief intro. I haven’t built a model in about 16 years, although my collection continues to grow. I consider myself a collector at this point in time, with a hard drive and book shelves filled with reference materials/photos for future builds. I pulled a kit from storage that I thought might interest some. Its a Lassen Project Unimog Series 401. It’s based on the 51 Mercedes Benz Unimog. The closed cab wasn’t available until 53. The kit has been in storage for some time now. The shrink wrap was broken long ago, but this is the first time the sprue have been removed from their individual packages. The detail/engraving is above average for plastic kits produced some 14 years ago. I hope the photos show some of the details. I also hope to get some photos of the directions up soon. When I opened a kit, I would place the directions and decals into a separate binder/plastic to protect them from moisture and aging. I have about 2 dozen binders, all broken up by production year (1:1 car’s production year) and make that I need to go through. Seems the Unimog is not in my 1950-1959 binder.
