The KrAZ-255 12-ton truck entered service in 1967, and is a high-mobility heavy truck that has seen widespread use in many Eastern block countries. It is designed to transport heavy items of equipment in difficult terrain, and exploits a new, wide-profile wheel and tyre system that was specially developed for the purpose. Nearly 200,000 vehicles have been manufactured to 1993, and it continues in service. Further information can be found at http://www.roden.eu/HTML/805.htm and https://www.wikiwand.com/en/KrAZ.
The model is provided with a base chassis, separate cab and spare wheel assembly, and a choice of open or closed cargo bay. Sided wheels are provided, which differ between front and rear. The spare wheel assembly should be positioned first, and the cab (open and solid versions are provided, in two parts to permit vertical printing) then fitted. The selected cargo bay and wheels can then be assembled. The axles and wheels may require some filing to allow for challenges with the FDM printing technology.
