1:100 15mm Modern Russian Ural 4320 Trucks.....

.....from Zvezda!

Painted a while ago but based recently, a nice plastic kit from Zvezda even for someone with gorilla sized hands!




The Ural-4320 is a general purpose off-road 6x6 truck, produced at the Ural Automotive Plant in MiassRussia for use in the Russian army. Introduced in 1976, it is still in production today.



The tarpaulin can be removed to show extra detail............ 





Some 15mm figures to show some scale...........



Life, internet and electricity were a little chaotic recently but a care package from a mate (no not Ray) helped.......cheers buddy



He has upgraded his phone and I get his old phone as I hadn't got one, gave my one to the missus a while back when hers had fallen into the poultry water buckets and pools one too many times and died!
A few movies, wargaming mags and a few 2000AD's as well.............

  2. Firstly Nice loot.

    Secondly nice trucks. They should help the Franonian cause

    Thirdly I am not impressed with how much these kits cost compared to the WW2 kits by the same company. But I think that is the retailers as Some WW2 tanks can cost a LOT more then others but a look around and you can still find them under £3. Not so with the modern stuff though.

    I have now stepped off of my soap box!

  4. Amazing those trucks are still in production. Nice job.
    Great bag of loot. I think I would've chucked my phone the first time it fell in poultry water, no questions asked.

  18. Hail Franonia! Hail the General!! Your Rooski army is growing, sir. Nice.

    When I lived in Germany in the early '60s, I met a Russky named "Puschkin." He lived in an offwhite opaque bottle with a golden bear dancing on the front label, and burned with a blue flame. Man! You could use this stuff to power your army's vehicles.

    1. Cheers right back.

      As for the standing pantry that I pulled out of the kitchen, we're going to build a simple but more functional one, down the line.
