NAMI 012 Steam Truck Scale - 1:43

Soon after the end of World War II, the Soviet Union like any of the industrialised nations was reeling under a huge burden of debt. Also the flow of natural resources such as oil was restricted due to damaged oil-wells. Whatever funds were available were diverted to the scientists so that they can develop a bomb that would serve as a deterrent in the future.

The 1949 NAMI 012 truck was a result of this scarcity of fuel. A steam boiler was installed at the rear of the driver's cabin. This truck weighed 14.5 tons when loaded with wood and water and would run at 40 km/hr to distances of 80 kms before requiring to be fuelled again. 

However, the project failed to take off as it took full sixty minutes of pre-heat time to start the truck.

This scale model in metal is a rare rendition of the original truck made.
