GAZ 67 (1943) - DeAgostini/IST Models

           GAZ 67 a fost un autovehicul de teren care a intrat in productie la uzina GAZ din Rusia, in 1943. A reprezentat echivalentul sovietic a Jeep-ului Willys si a fost utilizat intens in cel de-al doilea razboi mondial. A fost succesorul lui GAZ 64, cu care se aseamana mult, dar care a fost produs intr-un numar redus de exemplare. Printre diferente se numara ampatamentul marit si un rezervor mai mare. GAZ 67 era propulsat de un motor de 54 de cai-putere si atingea viteza de 90 km/h. S-a produs pana in 1953, cand i-a cedat locul lui GAZ 69

          Macheta este produsa de IST Models si face parte din colectia DeAgostini din Polonia. Unul asemanator a aparut si in Rusia. Are o realizare spartana cu detaliile de baza. Grila nu este perforata sau macar vopsita. Stergatoarele sunt una cu parbrizul iar la exemplarul meu, copertina este montata stramb.

GAZ 67 (1943) - DeAgostini/IST Models

           GAZ 67 was a Russian all-terrain vehicle, which started production in 1943 at the GAZ plant. It was the soviet equivalent of the Willys Jeep and it was extensively used in WW2. It was the successor of GAZ 64. They were very similar but GAZ 64 was built in a low number of pieces. GAZ 67 had a bigger wheelbase and bigger gas tank. It was powered by a 54 hp engine, able to take the vehicle at 90 km/h. It was produced until 1953 when it was replaced by the GAZ 69.

           The scale model is produced by IST and it belongs from the Polish Deagostini Collection. A similar one was released in Russia too. It has a rough finish with only base details. The front grille is not perforated nor painted. The wipers are the same piece with the windscreen and, at my model, the canvas roof is crooked.
