Rekord D Caravan 1972

Comment

Body painted in metallic light green. Beige interior, black dashboard.

Bumpers, headlights, front lights, mirrors (one of which was found by chance at the bottom of the box) are inserted; rear lights are painted on metallic background. Wipers are moulded with the windscreen. The windscreen and rear window are flush, while the other windows are not.

Disassembly is easy by removing the bumpers (which are fool-proofed) and pulling out a pin from under the bonnet. Here is a photo of the dismantled model.Dismantled model

The scale model is slightly oversized, and the wheels are too big.
