Making the seemingly impossible possible – Unimog – ScaleART makes it possible!
A never-before-seen type of model that has been in the making
for many years and required a great deal of know-how will see
the light of the model making world this year. ScaleART, which
has been committed to detailed and creating highly realistic
replicas on a scale of 1:14.5 for over 20 years, is thus
setting a further milestone. This will guarantee that the
off-road Unimog model will be just as playful to drive as its
legendary Mercedes role model on difficult terrain.
Why launch a Unimog model now?
A Unimog is the epitome of extreme load capacity and maximum
off-road capability. No commercial vehicle is more popular
than a Unimog. The myth around Unimog didn’t bypass ScaleART
either, as there is even an original Unimog in the possession
of chief designer Martin Michalik, who calls himself a huge
Unimog fan. Bernd Brand and Martin Michalik have been
following the dream of a functional Unimog model for many
years, and this project has become a matter of the heart for
After almost 10 years of preparation, during which the two of
them really collected everything that has to do with Unimog,
then designed and built several pre-series models. They then
decided to present the results of their work to mark the
company’s 20th anniversary.
Thanks to the great cooperation and support with the Unimog
Museum Gaggenau and Mercedes Benz as official license partner,
they can be amazed at the world’s first Unimog functional
model on October 17 and 18, 2020 in no better place than the
Unimog Museum Gaggenau, Germany. The preview takes place
directly in the museum, during the regular opening hours from
10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
This model will probably be available as a kit at the end of
