PE/Resin Detail:



"This kit was purchased to add scale to a Mil 26 helicopter under construction.
Kit went together well although the instructions were a little vague. The clears have scratch marks on them from the moulding process and took some alteration to fit properly. Some of the very fine plastic components were broken. "

The Ural-375 is a general purpose 4.5 ton 6×6 truck, produced at the Ural Automotive Plant in the Russian SFSR since 1961. The ZIL-157 was the standard Soviet truck until it was replaced by the Ural-375D, which became the standard Soviet truck in 1979. The Ural-375D was soon replaced by the Ural-4320.
