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?*
