MiniArt's 35th scale Oil Products Delivery Car, Liefer Pritschenwagen Typ 170v

Oil Products Delivery Car, Liefer Pritschenwagen Typ 170v
From MiniArt Models
Kit No: 38069
1/35th scale
The kit contains four marking choices in the box.
Photo-etch & clear parts are included
The Subject - the Type 170V van
The Mercedes Type 170V utility vehicle was another one of the variants of the successful Type 170 that was produced before, during and after WWII in many various forms from roadsters, cabriolets, Kubelwagens, utility vehicles, four-door passenger wagons, ambulances and other variants. It is a very popular vehicle amongst Mercedes enthusiasts and until recently not produced by many model makers in 1/35th scale.
MiniArt has made a few of these vehicles in 35th scale, this time, a very smart way of changing the look of their moulds with a delivery van version of the car, complete with cargo for the back and decals for the commercial uses of the kit.

The kit from Miniart:
The utility van version of the lovely 170V Mercedes, this kit is packed with not only the wooden body tray and canvas cover, but some oil drums and decals to suit the oil delivery / mechanics truck.

The feature set of the kit:
- Both the doors and the bonnet can be opened.
- Canvas cover of the utility is included.
- The highly detailed engine can be seen through a fine photo-etched grille.
- Two 200l (55 gallon) oil drums are included.
- The whole structure of the underside of the vehicle is replicated faithfully on this model.

The sprues included with the kit
The photo-etch sheet includes finer parts. 
Also, the single deal sheet is supplied for four versions of the 170V, each bearing different number plate,
The oil brands are covered for the drums also
There are four marking choices, all of these for utility van vehicles from after the war, right into the 50's, but these could be used in an earlier setting if you liked...

That is all we know about this release so far. See more about all of MiniArt's kits on their website...
