12mm GAZ 66 Truck from Butlers Printed Models

One Soviet GAZ 66 truck. Available in 6mm (1/285), 12mm (1/144), 15mm (1/100), 20mm (1/76) and 28mm (1/56).

 The GAZ-66 is a Soviet and later Russian 4x4 all-road military truck produced by GAZ. It was one of the main cargo vehicles for motorised infantry of the Soviet Army and is still employed in former Soviet Union countries.

The GAZ-66 has gained legendary status in many countries around the world due to its reliability, simplicity and off-road capability. Thanks to standard features, such as a front mounted winch, Central Tire Inflation System (CTIS) and self-locking differentials, the GAZ-66 is extremely popular worldwide with armed forces and off-road enthusiasts. Production ceased in 1999, with the GAZ-3308 being produced instead.

The M35 2½ ton cargo truck is a long-lived 2½-ton 6x6 cargo truck initially used by the United States Army and subsequently utilised by many nations around the world. Over time it evolved into a family of specialised vehicles. It inherited the nickname "Deuce and a Half" from an older 2½-ton truck, the World War II GMC CCKW.

Iltis MILAN & Munga from from Aotrs Shipyards

Aotrs Shipyards is a webstore on Shapeways.com, a 3D print house which had production and shipping facilities located in the USA and the Netherlands. Aotrs Shipyards also takes direct printing commissions.

This time, we have the MILAN version of the Iltis that I didn't have chance to do last time, and (as Thresher01 suggested it!) The DWK Munga, the Iltis' predecessor, both at 144th. (Both come in a sprue of four.)

The Kozak 2M.1 is now in the backlog pipeline. The Spartan is going to be delayed for a bit, until I can work out whether, according to my initial examinations, it is a completely different vehicle in practise to the Scorpion.

(According to what I’ve found on the dimensions, not only is it longer, but also wider and taller... And either the technical drawings I used for the Scorpion/Scimitar are wrong, or the ones for the Spartan I'm looking at are wrong, or I have completely got the size wrong or the wheels are not the same size. Investigation is pending, but if anyone has any insight...!)

So the next thing I will likely look at is the PT-76.

The Vultee A-31 Vengeance was an American dive bomber of World War II, built by Vultee Aircraft. A modified version was designated A-35. The Vengeance was not used operationally by the United States, but was operated as a front-line aircraft by the British Royal Air Force, the Royal Australian Air Force, and the Indian Air Force in Southeast Asia and the Southwest Pacific. The A-31 remained in service with U.S. units until 1945, primarily in a target-tug role.
