ICM 1/35 FWD Type B (35656)

This article will tell you more about ICM 1/35 FWD Type B (35656). New version of the WW1 truck is still molded in popular scale and might be handy for some diorama project. Moreover, it shouldn't be a large project as assembled model won't take a lot of space. Packaging is typical for this brand, so all frames come in one bag. There are 223 parts which should assemble into a truck with 157mm length. Let's open them all and take a closer look together.
By the way, here you can read review with another version of this truck.

Watch this video where I show all parts even closer.

First frame is dedicated to mix of parts. Here you will find large chassis bars as well as plastic wheels which should look better than the typical vinyl choice.

Out of the box you will get a lot of features for suspension and drivetrain. Those things might be useful for some diorama ideas with the truck.

ICM offers two assembly options - with or without canvas. In both cases I would recommend to think about putting something in the back section.

Here you can see another wheels type as well as rear canvas. Both look great, but with canvas you might want to remove some of the push marks inside.

Last grey frame is dedicated to canvas version which won't be used for today's truck. Overall molding quality in the kit looks nice out of the box.

Clear frame is packed into separate plastic bag and looks great. Decals sheet is not that big, but you will find all necessary symbols for three markings there. You can see all options 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 a nice choice for modelers who would like to work on smth from WW1 era. Moreover, ICM offers a lot of features out of the box, so assembled truck should look great without any additions. Yes, some of the camouflage options might be tricky to replicate, but I think the final result should be worth it.
