Finally it came for Christmas!





At the first glance it looks like a great model.
It has seven sprues (one of them with trasparent parts), the one piece molded hood, one small photo etched fret.
The 15 pages istruction booklet has quite big drawings and it seemed exhaustive and clear.
The costruction phases are 18
You can reproduce 3 exemplars
1 The car of general Pavloski during the Warsaw pact invasion of Former Czechoslovakia (Aug 21-1968)
2 USSR Army Warsaw pact, '60s '70s 20th Century
3 East German, '60s '70s 20th Century

If You have something to ask me about the model, I'll try to answer you.


Cheers and Merry Christmas everyone

I thought it was really nice to see a GAZ anything in kit form from a company that makes high quality models. When can we expect the build to start?

Merry Christmas Mauro, enjoy your Christmas present

Yes Jeremy, is very nice indeed. I've been waiting for a Gaz 69 model kit about since I was a young modeller. Although my stash at the moment is too full of stuffs, i think i'll do it soon

Merry Christmas Mauro, enjoy your Christmas present

Thanks very much for the images Mauro. Looks like a great little kit, and much more detailed than what the box top would let you believe. The archer SPG would trumph it though .... thats something Ill definately buy. Looking forward to the build now ... what keeping ya??

a little update

Is Christmas night and while i'm waiting for my girlfriend, i'm glancing at the istruction sheet....

Well, boys....I'm speechless



It's an incredible outstanding model. I'm feeling even a little bit intimidated...

For exemple to complete only the frame without ,engine, wheels and exhaust, there are 65 (SIXTY FIVE !!!) parts to put together... some of them are photo etched... I have the Ba 64 kit made by Vision model..the whole kit has 64 parts.....

In my opinion Bronco with this jewels kit has reached the DML quality level...

And how much did i spend for this gem? A fortune?...

Well...I spent less than 30 ...29,5 to be exact (38,6835 USD)
So Bronco is better than Dragon because is cheaper

In my opinion even if you aren't russian armours fans, you MUST to buy this kit

Cheers and best wishes again

Thanks Mauro!

And that Gaz looks stunning, I wasn't expecting the kit to be that detailed! I'll definitely have to pick one of those up for myself, and like Frank I'll be awaiting the Archer as well

Happy Holidays!

Jeremy take it home it's a real bargain!

Dave,thanks for the trust. If i could, i'd like to do a build log

Before i'd like to complete my Tamiya JNA t55...Well to be honest I really don't know yet. This model is very attractive so stay tuned. I could change my mind

Cheers and merry Christmas, I send you all my best wishes

Looks like a great kit!

Until I saw those photos, I was a bit worried knowing SKP was involved, but it seems it was more a matter of research than plastic moulding, thanksfullyi

I have to pick up mine at the Blast Model shop tomorrow.

Cheers,

Really looks like a very nice kit! I can't wait till it becomes available in the HK stores.

I wish Bronco would consider releasing a weapons set with that RPG-7 and that AK-47!

Christophe and Hisham

Yes, as i said, is a really stunning model, and luckily there are A LOT of references about it

So far I have just to report two small issues. The windscreen wipers aren't separate parts. They are molded with frontal screen, so it should be better cut it away and subsitute it with scratch or Pe parts . The edge of rear window is conceived to be mounted on canvas part and so the final result it won't be realistic. To be honest it'll be an hard to notice detail, but anyway it'll be rather easy replace the original part with a piece made in transparent plastic card.

The Ak 47 and the rocket lancer are nice goodies indeed

As i said, take the kit and you won't regret

Cheers

I just took advantage of my lunch break to buy the kit.

It is indeed very very nice, packed with detail everywhere for what is a relatively small vehicle. The tarp has some very subtly done folds and creases, the wheels look good and that engine also!

At around 28 it is a good deal, I considered buying one of the available resin kit but now I'm glad I waited!

Wow just what i've been looking for! As an owner of a full size 1964 GAZ69 I can say it is super detailed. It even has the right number of bolts on the cooling fan!

I've been hoping for a model of the '69 for some time now, thanks for the review!

Me too i've been waiting for it for ages, but it was really worth it!

Thanks, you're welcome .To be honest my tread was not as exhaustive as a true "/review". Opening the box i was just very impressed, so i wanted to tell it



cheers

It's in Russian, but Google translating tool is here to help
