1/72 Russian Air Force ground equipment

Recommended Posts

johnnyboy    14

I have been thinking of doing a winter diorama of modern airfield but there seems to be a lack of kits of any equipment that I could use  around parked air frames in 1/72. Google  seems devoid of useful pictures featuring towing and anti-icing trucks in use by the Russian air force. So do you know of anything that could be converted

It' not true, about Google:

For relatively small aircrafts, any special vehicles used for maintenance and support are used as tractors. For large aircraft, heavy trucks such as KrAZ-214 (KrAZ-225) are used. For heavy aircraft (up to 200 tons) on domestic airfields, aerodrome tractors were used for many years on the basis of the MAZ-537G ballast tractor. There are also specialized airfield tractors of the MoAZ-7915 type.
