Model: 35415 Scale: 1/35
This kit actually checks a few boxes:
It represents a nice change from all the Opels, Mercedes, Hanomags, and other manufacturers vehicles we usually see in a configuration we don’t often see;
It is a field kitchen so if you don’t already have one of the truck- or horse-drawn kits this gets you a kitchen;
It is almost ready-made for a diorama and the addition of figures would have made that 100%;
Depending on the price point it could be something you buy because you’d be crazy not to at that price. One of the selling points of the Cyber Hobby kits for me was getting a (usually) older Dragon kit at a slightly lower price with a free set of figures thrown in. The mention of gear being included is even better than the kitchen as they aren’t restricted usage like the kitchen. The last truck I built (Mercedes L4500S) came with a driver (Yay!) and mechanic (Okay.) but no cargo (Aww.) Well to be fair if there was a mechanic the truck must be in the shop, hence no cargo. Nice dodge, Zvezda.
So, have I sold you all on a kit I have no knowledge of beyond the image in the OP’s post?
And the snazzy diamond-shaped plates on the sides…
Who can say ‘No’ to that?
Yes it is different, I built the Tamiya reboxing.
It looks like a AHN to me but if accuracy is your goal, this is not the kit for you.
They have a few different versions.
But I guess that’s the thing; is there an alternative to the ICM offering?
Unfortunately this is your only dance partner.
Such a shame that they continue to re-release all these interesting versions of the Renault truck but don’t fix the glaring issues, like the door/fender relationship, the wheels, cabin shape etc, which are so hard to scratch-build.
Some folks looked into 3D printing the fixes but it’s one of those things that as you pull the thread it just leads to more issues. Depending on one’s need for a AHN, just build out of box and live with the issues until a new company makes a kit.
Nacho is one of them. Pretty sure it was Angel that shared additional information with me when I was building mine that you kinda have to start from scratch. More work then I was willing to attempt for my needs.
Still kinda makes me want to build another OOB to fix my mistakes from before but I got too many other projects I really want to do.
The relationship with the wheels and the cab doors I get. It’s clearly wrong. Please expand on the other issues. Here’s some more photos taken at the War and Peace Show some years back.
