MAB mobile was the brand name of VEB Kombinat Metallaufbereitung, a state-owned GDR company based in Halle, specialized in manufacuring diecast metal products. The first models were introduced in 1984: five military vehicles made from moulds by Plasticart from Annaberg-Buchholz. A 1/87th scale Tatra 815 truck in various versions (platform, platform with tilt, fire engine) followed in 1988. Truckbed and chassis were made of diecast, the cab was made of plastic and designed by Wiking in West Berlin. In 1990, MAB mobile took over the moulds of the 1/43rd scale Opel Kadett 4-door sedan, 5-door hatchback and Caravan by Gama and produced its own versions of these models; they featured different wheels, and the quality of the paint job was poorer. A 1/50th scale model of the Multicar was planned, but never released. Production ceased soon after the German reunification in October 1990, and the moulds were sold to Hruska, the maker of the Permot models.
