Tom -- I've got my eyes on that one for an upcoming tow truck!  There are also several other versions of the Gaz ... a couple already out ... and they look quite good from the reviews/builds that have already been posted on the military forums.

Here's another:  ICM Models Ford V3000, 1941 production ... this one is already out and widely available ... covered by a number of reviews/builds on the web already.  IIRC, the differences between this and the US version are very slight ... think the US version had a split windshield and some other very subtle differences.

PS -- If you do an IMAGE search for "Miniart Gaz" or "ICM Ford V3000" etc ... you'll quickly stumble onto the review and build threads that have the better photos.  Wink

Cheers,
Dallas

Miniart has the Harley WLA motorcyles packaged several different ways ... repair crew, MP's and individually ... Anders has shown some of these in his Blacksmith Shop thread ...

Bronco makes the Triumph 3HW's ... which I understand can be converted to the civilian versions fairly easily ...

And Anders "might" be at work on some of the new Diopark Honda's too ...

Again, do an IMAGE search for any of these and you'll find review/build threads with lots of photos ... Dallas

Meng modern pick-up. Apparently based on the 1997 Toyota HiLux 4x4 Duel Cab SR5.

Also, Lindberg Models makes quite a few civillian auto plastic models in 1/32. (I tried to find a link to a seller that carries them and allows you to sort by scale, but had no luck. Most of the vehicles are ~30's to 50's era.)

Who makes a good 1:35 motorcycle kit i could cannibalize?
You know, good details and a nice frame so I could show it w/o the engine.
Thinking my "girls" could be using it to construct their flying machine......

Marty --

I have one of the MasterBox "German Motorcycle Repair Crew" sets stashed for a similar project -- couple of photos below.  It's a BMW R75 with sidecar ... can be built with engine removed, etc.

That version includes figures and some other bits, but it does NOT have the photo-etched wheel spokes.

"Repair" version with extra figures, but PLASTIC wheel spokes (more photos on site):
http://mbltd.info/3560.htm

Regular version of bike with PHOTO-ETCH wheel spokes -- believe everything else is the same, so you could build it in assemblies as shown in the "repair" version:
http://mbltd.info/3528f.htm

Cheers,
Dallas

These are 1/32 kits from ARI. I think they are small enough, and unique enough vehicles that you might be able to pass them off as 1/35. If using figures just use some that are on the large end of the 1/35 spectrum.

The kits ran from $7 to $9 (top one being the 7). They are older molds, and do require some clean-up, and can stand to have some additional and refined detiling done with styrene......but all in all, a heck of a deal, for some very interesting pieces. The top kit (which is the one I will be working with) consists of 25 parts (supposed to be 27, but my kit was missing the 2 windows), and a decal sheet.
