The Item

If you want to bring your Ural 375 Fuel Tank Truck model kit to the next level, this excellent photoetch detail set is just the thing for you. This extensive PE sheet has most of the appliqués that can be added to the kit to provide a fully detailed rendering of the Ural 375 Fuel Tanker vehicle.

PE parts generally require certain tools to bend/and manipulate the parts for a good fit. You’ll find those at online and local hobby shops. Adhesion can be done in a variety of ways including thin cements, paint, or even floor polish, depending on the part’s requirements. This set comes with instructions and the parts are correspondingly numbered on the fret tree.

All-in-all this set will definitely enhance the appearance of your Ural 375 Fuel Tank Truck.

The Subject

The Ural-375 is a heavy-duty off-road truck that was produced by the Ural Automotive Plant in the Soviet Union from the late 1960s to the early 1980s. It was designed for military use, and was commonly used for transportation of troops, ammunition, and other supplies.

The Ural-375 is known for its ruggedness and off-road capabilities, and is equipped with a four-wheel drive system and high ground clearance, making it suitable for operation in rough terrain and extreme weather conditions. The truck has a payload capacity of up to 5 tons, depending on the configuration.

There were several variants of the Ural-375 produced, including a troop carrier, cargo truck, fuel tanker, and ambulance. The truck was also used as the basis for a number of specialized vehicles, such as mobile missile launchers, radar systems, and command vehicles.

Although the Ural-375 is no longer in production, it remains a popular vehicle among military enthusiasts and collectors, and can still be found in use in some parts of the world.
