The Lego Car Blog favourite Karwik is back, with another beautifully recreated Soviet marvel, this time a UAZ 469. The UAZ, like most Russian metal from the era, was an anonymously-named off-road military vehicle with a reputation for not working properly. Unbelievably production of the 469 only ended last year, 41 years after it started, as UAZ try to switch to manufacturing passenger vehicles following the collapse of the Soviet Union. Looking at their latest efforts, we’re not too hopeful of a bright future, but we do like an underdog. You can check out Karwik’s wonderful build on Flickr.
