Radio killed the video star

Joining my lineup of hastily painted dodgy diecasts is this duo.  On the left is a hardtop version of the (t)rusty GAZ-69 and on the right a car-derived Moskvich van.

 The GAZ arrived with a snow plough attachment adorned in a garish shade of orange.  I felt that it could better serve the forces of progressive international socialism as a radio truck.

 According to it's original paintwork, the Moskvich was the ride of choice for the Soviet-era television repair man.  Like the GAZ it has cast aside such bourgeois tendencies in favour of serving the military communications network.  Now does the title make sense?*

Crisp paint job on these. The Little Cold Wars game looks to be good.

Just a quick spray of Humbrol Grass Green - my Sovier green of choice.

You mean that just when you think there's no more crappy diecasts to come, I find more?
