Plus Model has provided another great resin kit of an East German cold war truck; the Multicar M-22. Used for all types of military cargo use, mainly on airfields across Eastern Europe by the Czech forces.

The detail quality is good in most areas. There minimal flash or other imperfections. Once removed from the mold base, the parts are ready to assemble. There was a very bad bow in the chassis which I managed to reduce a bit using hot water, but it is still a little visible in the final build.

The small parts are very delicate, and you must take extreme care when removing them from the mold base.

The Assembly is in 15 steps and is very quick and easy. The only issues encountered were the bow in the Chassis, as I mentioned previously, and the drive shaft was a little short, so I extended it. The steering shaft was also a little long so it needed to be reduced.

This was a nice build, but the bow in the chassis did make me feel a little disappointed in the final finish.

The kit can be finished in three versions: the German Democratic Republic National People's army, Czechoslovak People's Army, and a Civil version. I decided to do the DDR version.

Thanks go to Plus Models for providing this kit to review and IPMS USA for allowing me to review it for them.
