US Army Staff Car
Plus Model, 1/35 scale
by Luke Pitt
All of the resin is well cast and devoid of pin holes or any other surface imperfections. The main body casting is a fine hollow unit with the front doors cast separately. The all-important shape of the coachwork is captured very well. The bottom chassis is cast as a one-piece affair and fits snugly into the main coachwork with few or no gaps in evidence.
The interior is well catered for, with all of the major components like the dashboard, seats and interior fitting presented to a high standard. The suspension is also handled very well with the leaf springs and steering hardware showing very fine detail. The wheels on this kit are cast and presented to a very high standard with and outstanding tread pattern in evidence. The hubcaps even have the Plymouth name embossed on them!
Some may be put off by the price of this kit but in reality it is the only game in town. Sure, it not a more commonly seen Ford US Staff Car but it is done to such a high standard. This really sums up Plus Models really, always different always interesting.
