The 2S1 artillery control complex comprised of several vehicles on the MT-LBu chassis. These vehicles differed in some of the external stowage, but generally the differences were in internal equipment and crewing. Accordingly, this model can readily be adjusted to represent the different vehicle type, should this complete complex be modelled. Further information can be found on the valka.cz site.
The1V12 vehicle is based on the MT-LBu chassis, and can sometimes be found with a 12.7mm MG mounted on the small cupola in the centre of the hull (a design for a suitable MG is supplied). This model is designed to complement the models of the 2S1 Gvozdika SPH, and the ARK-1 radar (already available) to provide an interesting artillery unit for wargames.
The model design is relatively straightforward, and is provided in two versions. An integrated, hollow version is provided for resin printing, and a version with separate tracks for fdm printing. The tracks are best printed flat on the bed, with the outside of the units facing away from the bed. Removal of the supports can be tedious, but care taken will result in faithful representations. A separate MG model is provided for use if desired.
The design has been updated on 22 July 2022 to correct a design defect in the tracks near the rear idler. The opportunity has been taken to reduce the complexity of the tracks, and to improve their fidelity, to ease slicing. The simplified and corrected files are available. If current users have any problems updating their files, please let me know. The resin version has not been test printed, but there is no reason to suppose that there will be any issues.
The product is offered for personal, non-commercial use. Derivative designs for personal use may be generated, but neither the original nor derivatives may be shared with others. Attribution of the design is requested should printed models be exhibited or otherwise shared. Models printed from this design or derivatives may not be sold commercially.
