Those trucks I'm definitely interested in... especially the ZIS-150. Did you know that ZIS-150s are still in regular use in North Korea? And apparently they also built some copies in the 1960s called "Chollima" (flying horse).

I do not know anything about Korean version of ZIS-150.
I've heard about the brand "Chollima" only for buses and tracktors.

I know that copies of ZIS-150 were produced in Romania (SR-101, Steagul Rosu) until 1965 and in China on FAW plant as Jiefang CA-10. As I know, modernized version is produced in China even now!

I remember ZIL-164 (modernized ZIS-150) in USSR in 1980s, especially as fine-engine vehicle.
Even in Russia you can meet ZIL-164 even now!

So I believe that it is in use in Korea...

The model is very nice and accurate.

Here's a picture of the Chollima truck... though where I found this one it says probably only a prototype was made. Even so, there are still many ZIS-150s still on the road in DPRK!

This is an interesting link: http://picasaweb.google.nl/birgit1401/D ... irectlink#

It looks like a copy of ZIL-164, not ZIS-150.
ZIL-164 is a modernized version of ZIS-150, produced in 1957-1964. ZIL-164 have new engine and transmission; and the notches on radiator are vertical (on ZIS-150 they are horizontal)

Those look like useful cars and trucks so the big question is where can a USA modeler buy them? ...dave
