|A note on the paint color of
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|
Modern protected patrol vehicle from GHQ
Another version, without camo
An assortment of Soviet Trucks by CinC -- URAL 375 (large) and Gaz 66 (small)
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
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
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.
Some sort of supply vehicle from ISM
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
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).
Almost nothing about this model is correct...
Skytrex Scud Launch Vehicle and Missile
This certainly needs some work...
Radar Vehicle on AT Chassis
Some sort of radar vehicle , I believe it is the PSP-3
Two Versions of GHQ's ACRV (Armored Command and Reconaissance Vehicle)
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.
A custom-converted BMP-1, given to me by a friend
BRDM-2s with AT-5 ATGMs
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
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.
