IBG Models 1/72 Diamond T 968 Softcab Cargo Truck with M2 (72084)

This article will tell you more about IBG Models 1/72 Diamond T 968 Softcab Cargo Truck with M2 (72084). Polish manufacturer gives us a chance to build s small copy of the unusual vehicle with machine gun on the roof. We reviewed previous versions, and you can find them on our website. Nevertheless, today's release look like an interesting thing work on for modelers who don't want a bigger build. Packaging is typical here, so let's open everything and check together.
By the way, here you can read review with tank model in the same scale.

You can help us get the new camera - just press "Donate" button on the right panel.

Watch this video where I show all parts even closer.

We are going to start with two small frames. Here you will find some parts for the front cab. Note that some of those will stay as they are designed for use on different version.

This sprue is specific for today's version of the vehicle. Here you will find new roof panel and machine gun to be installed there.

Next frame might be familiar to modelers who already had a chance to check Diamond T from IBG Models. Here you will have to pay attention to what parts are used in today's version.

Yes, kit also features engine and nice suspension. Those features might be useful in case you plan to build some diorama with exposing the engine.

Last grey frame carries separate panels for the rear bed. There is no wooden texture, but IBG Models gives us top frames which might be used for tarpauline placement.

Unpainted PE fret comes as nice bonus. All those parts will be useful for fine features on your truck.

Clear parts come in form of transparent film. You will have to cut out the necessary sections and glue them in place.

Decals are printed in Techmod. Overall quality looks great, and you can see both markings on the photo below.

Assembly manual is typical for this brand. I show all pages in the video-review.

New truck should be already available for purchase. In my opinion it is an interesting choice for modelers who would like to try some wheeled vehicle build, but still want it to have a gun. Moreover, here you get a lot of opportunities for additional details. Small scale is not a problem as IBG managed to add nice details in the standard package. PE parts will also help this as some fine features will be replicated as well.
