Following the ZiLs, more truck kits roll out from Custom Factory, and this time we see a couple of post-WWII GAZ trucks.
GAZ (Gorkovsky Avtomobilny Zavod) is a Russian automotive manufacturer that started in 1932 as a cooperative enterprise between Ford and the Soviet Union. It has produced trucks such as the GAZ-51, a 2.5t 4x2 vehicle, in configurations such as a standard truck, dumper, as well as tractor-trailer. Similar to its basic appearance is the GAZ-63, a 2t 4x4 truck produced from 1948 to 1968, and was eventually used as the basis for the BTR-40 armored personnel carrier.

  • GAZ-63 on Ya-187 Tires (CF3533FK)
  • GAZ-51 (CF3534FK)
All the above are full resin kits in 1/35 scale.

Background information on the vehicles sourced from Wikipedia.
