The UAZ 469B was originally developed for the Russian Army in the early seventies. It is a light, seven-passenger, 4×4 vehicle which is still manufactured today. While the UAZ has developed a following throughout the world, to us it perhaps best known for its movie cameos, particularly in many of the James Bond flicks. One Italian guy happened to simply fall in love with the robust UAZ.
Instead of simply buying one however, this guy decided to build his own. The result in one amazingly detailed UAZ radio-controlled model. The attention to detail is amazing: steel construction, operating vents, fuel doors, even the headlight lenses and seat frames look real. Not only do headlights work but the dashboard illuminates as well. Unreal.
After the jump is a 70+ image pictoral of the the built process and the final result. Warning, it may take a while to load but it is worth it.
