Meng Model 1:35 - Russian Armed Forces Tank Crew - Plastic Figure Model Kit #HS-007
The kit represents five tank crew members of the modern Russian Armed Forces. Two figures are wearing ceremonial uniforms and are depicted in poses typical for Russian tankmen taking part in the Victory Day Parade. The parade is held on the 9th of May each year in commemoration of the Soviet victory over Nazi Germany. These two figures can be used with Meng TS-006 tank in a diorama dedicated to the Parade.
The other three figures are busy with normal daily tasks on training exercises. They are dressed in standard Russian tanker uniforms. These three figures can complement Meng TS-006, TS-014 and TS-028 models. Support parts are provided to fix all the figures on the tanks.
The kit includes parts for five figures and support parts. Glue and paint are not included.
The set consists of six colours designed for painting camouflage patterns that are most commonly used on vehicles of the Russian army and armed forces of post-Soviet states. These colours can also be seen on vehicles of the late Soviet era. These paints are water soluble, which will help you avoid odours typical of more aggressive, solvent-based paints. They are suitable for both brush and airbrush use, and the special AK-Interactive formula helps prevent airbrush blockages.

The Soviet truck KrAZ-255B entered production in 1965, and full series production started in 1967. KrAZ stood for Kremenchutskyi Avtomobilnyi Zavod (Kremenchuk Automobile Plant), a Ukrainian factory which produced these trucks. The KrAZ-255B had a revised braking system and was intended to replace the earlier KrAZ-214 truck. It had some visual similarities with the earlier KrAZ-214 but had a more powerful engine. Other design improvements included a hydraulic steering booster instead of the pneumatic booster of the KrAZ-214, and the standard 14.00-20 tyres of the KrAZ-214 were substituted by the new wide section pressure adjustable tires with a centralised tire inflation system controlled by the driver directly from the cab. In 1976 the KrAZ-255B was equipped with a new dual-circuit braking system to replace the single circuit system, and such vehicles were given the revised KrAZ-255B (B1) designation. Overall from 1967 till 1994 around 82,000 KrAZ-255B's were produced.

Meng Model 1:35 - Russian GAZ Tiger-M SPN SPV - Plastic model kit #VS-008
The GAZ Tigr ("Тигр", or "Tigr" is Russian for Tiger) is a modern Russian infantry mobility vehicle (IMV) produced by the Gorky Automobile Plant (GAZ) in Nizhny Novgorod. Production started in 2006 and in the same year the vehicle was introduced into service with the Russian Army.
The main functions of the Tigr are to transport troops and equipment both on and off-road. Designed to operate in various terrains and extreme weather conditions, the Tigr performs well in mountain, arctic and desert environments. Minimum operating temperature is -50°C. The vehicle construction consists of a chassis frame, a front engine compartment, a middle crew compartment and a rear cargo area that can store up to 500 kg. The PKP Pecheneg machine gun is installed as its main armament.
The Tigr-M, a more advanced Tigr version, was issued in 2010. It features a more powerful diesel engine from the Yaroslavl Motor Plant, additional armour hood for the armament and the NBC protection system (a system that could neutralize nuclear, biological and chemical threats). Three years later the new model was officially adopted into service. In 2017 the Tigr-M was upgraded with a remotely controlled weapon module "Arbalet-DM" which includes the Pecheneg machine gun and the Kord machine gun.
Apart from the Russian Army, Tigr vehicles are deployed by the armed forces of other countries including Syria, Armenia, Kazakhstan and others.
