Kittyhawk has CAD details of a 48th scale Ural 4320 tanker/ truck & bomb / rdinance trolley for those who need lading up...

Kittyhawk has made the truck that none of us has asked for, but many need. A 48th scale Ural 4320 truck - one of the main support vehicles from the Eastern Bloc, but this one comes with the Russian Bomb Loading trolley. These are only in CAD so far but they show some promise in our preview...

1/48th Scale
From Kittyhawk Model
Product No #KH80158
The Ural-4320 is a general purpose off-road 6x6 vehicle, produced at the Ural Automotive Plant in Miass, Russia for use in the Russian army. Introduced in 1976, it is still in production today. The wheel arrangement for the Ural-4320 was designed for transporting cargo, people and trailers on all types of roads and terrain. It also serves as a fuel carrier for aircraft and other vehicles. 
Kittyhawk Model is making one of these, with the option of a cargo tray and a fuel truck option, both in 48th. The truck comes with the large booms that swing off to the side and over the aircraft.
There is also the option of making this an ordinance or general duties truck, a cargo tray is an option for this kit.
This kit includes three trollies to go alongside or to be towed by the truck. The circular connectors carry large ordinance, the flat on carries lots of bombs, a spare jack and a portable fire extinguisher... 
 ...As well as another trolly that has parts to adapt it to carry something as large as this engine (not sure if it is included, prob not) if you like. It is an impressive set of equipment that comes with this kit that could well be made into two separate kits if you like.
This kit has just been announced, so no more details as of yet. We will let you know when we have any more specific information on this kit and what exactly comes in the box closer to release date!
