    Product Description
    In 1956 the year in which the "German Bundeswehr" became alive as part of the West European "NATO" there was a new structure of the army units introduced. It became very obvious that at the time there was no vehicle in the inventory, mainly US Army equipment, that was suitable for the role as "K??belwagen" So the Bundeswehr did order 5600 vehicles of the 0.75 to light truck "Borgward B200A" for their first inventory. This decision was made against "Opel" and "Hanomag". The engine of the "Borgward" was a gasoline with 2400 ccm with 82 HP.
    Some of the "Borgward" came from former "Police Units" which had some detail differences, e.g. the roof and some hatches. Also, differences occurred with some of the Borgward which have been manufactured with "Bussing NAG". Since introducing the Unimog S404 most of the "Borgward" duties did change, and since 1969 the vehicle was entirely used for military driving schools and personal transporting in some infantry and artillery units. The last "Borgwards" left service in 1975.

    The kit comes in a large cardboard box, about the size of typical plastic kit box. The resin parts are packed in zip-bags and are well protected by styrofoam chips and shredded paper.
    The kit consists in 89 resin parts and a sheet of decals. One part of the instruction sheets contains a list of all included parts. Each part is shown on drawing and is also named.
    The resin parts are attached to casting blocks. Attachment points are quite small and they are very easy to remove even for anyone with minimum experience in working with resin kits. On some parts there are deliberately some additional resin pins and plates added to help in casting process and these need to be removed, too.
    All parts have crisp and very well defined details on themm
