Trumpeter 01065 1/35 MAZ-537G Late Production type with ChMZAP-9990 semi-trailer Plastic Model Kit
The first prototypes of the MAZ-537 were built in 1958 and series production was launched in 1960. The new vehicle incorporated an engine developing 525hp at 2100rpm-a very high figure for that time, evev armoured vehicle and tanks had ofer fewer hp-and many significant changes in the fuel supply, cooling system and lubrication which made a complete redsign of the engine compartment covers and louvers necessary. Nearly all components of the frame and chassis were reinforced as well increasing the total weight to 21.6tons (total gross weight 87tons) allowing a load of up to 50 tons to be towed.
The first series of the MAZ-537 remained in production in Minsk until 1964 before it was shifted to Kurgan Factory as was done with the MAZ-535 before.
This is a scale plastic model kit, assembly required. Paints and glue not included.
