I dont think it was released by Alan, I think it was initial released by AER of Moldova, it may have been boxed by several other companys later like ARK, RPM, TOGO/TOM etc.
I never bought it since I considered the Tamiya offering being better, I never realized it was the earlier verion (I now may have to get one!). If you compare details on the wheels fex the Tamiya is better detailed and crisper moulded.
I got the BA-64 AC and its a joke!!! They have simply got every measurement and angle wrong, and then its the fit of parts...
Thank god for Visions kit!
Lets hope Vision gives us a good GAZ 67!
