I have one of these on the way, a 1/43 scale Chevy WW2 1.5 ton truck, out of Estonia. They're only marketed for Eastern Europe (beats me why, as I think they'd sell well over here). In the states in 1943, they had plenty of them so I was surprised to see a decent model in the scale I want, finally.

When it gets here, I will strip off the Russian markings. I already have decals for a truck like this (like I used on the other WW2 vehicles on the layout). I might get rid of my 1/43 scale Studebaker S-series 2.5 ton after this model is in place, as I don’t have a lot of room and those weren’t very common. All these larger trucks were only sold in Eastern Europe, oddly (even the GMC CCKW, a very common truck in the US). I ordered all of them from across the pond and none came cheaply...

Thank you for taking my back home so many decades ago.  My friend restored Model A's.  His own was paint a similar dark green.  On a summer evening I was there, he said let's go for a ride.  We must have drove around for the better part of 2-hours.  We were the envy of everyone passing by.

I can't believe I still remember this, but an old Mad Magazine when I was a kid mentioned a Dairy called, "Moo Juice Dairy" and if I had modelled anything with whimsey, I would have put that name on the side of such a truck...

Lee - wonderful idea!  You have inspired me.  Moo Juice Dairy is now on my list of things to create.   Many thanks!

Let me know if you ever do. The original idea came from their "Facts of Life" parody in Mad Magazine. I just looked it up, the reference was in "The Yaks of Life" in the December 1982 issue, according to Wikipedia.

I have no idea how I can remember that so clearly!

I just got my 1/43rd scale Chevy 1.5 ton truck, out of Estonia. I was very surprised, as I got the model in just 12 days from the order.
Hopefully, with some of that testors Evo stuff, I can remove the few markings on this thing and go to work on it right away. I'm very, very happy with the quality of this model, and though it wasn't cheap I'm very glad I got one!1213191739b1213191739a1213191739
