Softskin Vehicles And Miscellaneous Vehicles,

Soft Skin Vehicles

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.

Kamaz 5350
GHQ model from 2017

Kamaz 6350
GHQ model, circa 2017

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


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.

Some Sort Of Russian Transport
3-D printed model, I can't recall the maker

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
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).

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)

CinC version

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

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

BRDM-2s with AT-5 ATGMs

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.
