Soft Skin Vehicles
Miscellaneous

Note:  The Soviet section has been broken up into a number of subsections, because the original had gotten far too large.

A note on the paint color of Soviet vehicles:  Most of these shots look less green and more brown than they appear in real life (I assume it is due to the flash, I don't really know).  However, I have not finished most of my vehicles in the black-green frequently seen on 1980's Soviet vehicles on parade.  Rather, I chose a greenish-khaki (Soviet Khaki #2, PollyScale) that seems to be a far closer match to the way Soviet vehicles actually appear in the field.  When I have used black green, I have drybrushed Soviet Khaki onto them.  I have not painted anything in the various light green shades sometimes marketed as WarPac paint, as I have yet to see decent photographic evidence that it was ever used outside of parades.

Soft Skin Vehicles

Gaz Tigr
Modern protected patrol vehicle from GHQ










GAZ-TIGR ATGM
GHQ Model




Another version, without camo




An assortment of Soviet Trucks by CinC -- URAL 375 (large) and Gaz 66 (small)


GHQ Gaz-66
A significantly better model than CinC's, although it does not have removable canvas.




Same model in a slightly different paint scheme


This came in a pack labelled Gaz-66 airborne version...  Don't know the manufacturer, but wheels make me think Skytrex.




GHQ URAL 375 D Heavy Truck


GHQ KrAZ-225B


CinC KrAZ-225B




More assorted KrAZs... At least, I think so


GHQ KrAZ 214
An excellent model




Some Sort Of Skytrex Truck


MAZ-537 Tank Transporter
A model from ISM, with a generic trailer


With an T-34 -- not appropriate for the model.  Let's just say it is taking it to a museum...


UAZ-469 Canvas Top
GHQ model






Gaz-69 Variants
ATGM vehicles and such from Masters of Military




ISM Gaz-66 Maintenance Vehicle




CinC AT-T Tractor
A fine model in multiple parts that can be assembled either covered or uncovered.




MT-T Amphibious Transport
From Masters of Military






ISM Fuel Truck
Looks to be URAL-375 based?


Electronic Warfare Team
Another one of the multiple-vehicle sets from ISM


GAZ-66 Communications Van
Either Scotia or ISM, but probably Scotia.  Antennae are 20 gauge wire.


Supply Vehicle
Some sort of supply vehicle from ISM


Miscellaneous Vehicles
ISM SS-25
This is one of the sets from ISM that included a number of vehicles in a single package -- a very effective way to sell them in my opinion.
This is a transport/launcher/transporter and a control vehicle


This is a transport/launcher/transporter and a command vehicle


CinC SS-20
An excellent model, and surprisingly large.  Well worth the $7.00 per model it costs.  Can be built in either transport mode (as show here) or deployed (which I opted not to build).



ISM SS-20
Almost nothing about this model is correct...






Skytrex Scud
Launch Vehicle and Missile
This certainly needs some work...


Skytrex FROG-7


Radar Vehicle on AT Chassis
Some sort of radar vehicle , I believe it is the PSP-3




Skytrex version




Two Versions of GHQ's ACRV (Armored Command and Reconaissance Vehicle)


ACRV
CinC version




ACRV
Another conversion, antennaes and gun added, by persons unknown.  I believe the manufacturer to be Scotia.  Obviously, model isn't in the same league as its GHQ equivalent.


Another version


BTR-80 Command
ISM Model




BMP-1K
A custom-converted BMP-1, given to me by a friend


BRDM-2s with AT-5 ATGMs
GHQ BRDM-2/AT-5


CinC BRDM-2/AT-5


CinC and GHQ models side by side


H&R BRDM-2s in the anti-tank role


BRDM-1 with AT-3 ATGMs
CinC Model of early BRDM with AT-3 Sagger ATGMs




This is the GHQ version, which makes me think the above model is missing the cover.


BRDM-1 with AT-1 Snapper ATGMs
Model from GHQ


UAZ-469 w/B-11 Recoiless Rifle




Decontamination Team
A NBC decontamination team from ISM featuring what appears to be a modified GHQ URAL truck and a pair of modified H&R BRDM-2s


Another version of the URAL with the jet engine on the back.  I believe this one is from Scotia.
