This model recreates a 1.5ton Russian cargo vehicle which formed a key element of the Russian war effort in WWII. As a result of scarcity of materials following the commencement of hostilities with German forces, the 1941 type of the truck ended up being redesigned to make use of only the smallest amount of metal. It lost its doorways (changed with canvas curtains), right headlight, front bumper, front brake system, while front fenders received a flattened shape. In another work to reduce the amount of metal used, it was additionally given floors and a back cockpit panel made from timber. It was produced until 1949, with around 300,000 rolling from the production lines.
The Tamiya model captures everything such as the wood grain texture to produce this highly utilized utility vehicle.
