A diecast toy dealer from Russia, http://www.diecast.ru/
, has a really cool line of Russian-made 1/43 scale diecast models including this model of a Russian-made Chevrolet model not produced in the U.S. The real Chevrolet Niva Vaz 2123 SUV models are produced by a joint venture of Chevrolet and VAZ motors of Russia.
The overall quality of the diecast looks comparable to other quality brands such as Corgi. The tires are even made from real rubber as well.
