Since the middle of WWII, Germany had a shortage of metal, therefore a series of simplifications were introduced since 1943 in the manufacturing process of vehicles. These resulted in a design change of the 4.5t heavy truck: front fenders made from simple metal sheets, the cabin was made from plywood on a wooden frame, front bumper and rear fenders were deleted. This simple variant (called Einheitskabine) was manufactured until the end of the war. These trucks were in service even several years after the end of the war for many civilian purposes.

Also includes plank texture bed and bed rails, squared wood pattern cab (with interior and separately molded doors), standing mechanic, posable hood panels, optional headlight slotted blackout covers and injection-molded clear parts. Decals and painting reference for a typical Wehrmacht vehicle.
