Product Picture

This is another in the Scooter series of models recently released by Plus Model. The kit is a 30-series Cushman Autoglide and includes Army & Navy markings.

Kit

The Plus Model kit comes in a blister pack containing 12 resin parts, 1 clear plastic part, 4 photoetch parts, brass wire, and decal sheet. The photoetch parts are very small but add nice detail to the scooter.

Assembly

All of the parts have flash and casting blocks that must be removed. The front fork, part #2, is very fragile and I removed the flash before removing the fork from the casting block. None of the parts were deformed or broken. There is not much detail to the engine, but then it is enclosed in the shroud and not very visible.

Finishing

I washed & primed the kit, painted it with Lifecolor Olive Drab Faded, and followed with a MIG Brown Wash. The kit goes together well despite its tiny size and without any fit issues.

Challenging build due to the small size but a fun kit! Highly recommended for an experienced modeler willing to work with the small parts. The kit will be a nice accessory to Navy or Army subjects

Thanks to Plus Model for producing another unique scooter subject, and thanks IPMS/USA for giving me the opportunity to build it.
