Hello,

the LADA NIVA in 1/35 of Balaton Modell. A small kit with great details, etched parts, clear foil and wire ....

Plus a small shopping vehicle of Royal Model - a not easy kit itself






















Cheers

Interesting build. I've never heard of Lada. You did a nice job on both kits. Well done.

Pretty cool, definitely brings the utilitarian aspect with this build.

Wow! It's most iconic Soviet car. Initially built under Fiat license (Lada 1200), then developed further in many versions and sub-versions. Lada is the export name, in URSS (CSI) being known as Jiguly (transcription from Cyrillic). Was manufactured also in Poland, under yet another name: Zsastawa.

'Zastava' was a Yugoslavian car manufacturer - I don't remember them producing any Ladas though.

Great job!

It looks great, and the shopping cart nails the setting perfectly!

The Niva is very iconic indeed, but, you've done something wrong...

The fit and finish are far too good to be realistic!

Congrats on a nice piece of work!
