The FJ43 is part of the famous FJ40 series of 4x4s produced by a well-known Japanese company since 1953. The J40 series was a tremendous best seller around the globe, helping to build the reputation of the Japanese brand worldwide due to its sturdiness, economy, and reliability. It was used for decades for military and civilian duties and still remains in service in many countries.
This kit is the FJ43 PickUp version customized with the DShKM soviet heavy machine gun. The “Dushka” as it is widely known, was originally designed in 1938 and was improved postwar with a revised muzzle and feeding system, remaining in production into the 80s. It was and still is a very popular HMG with both regular and irregular armies, due to its power, reliability, and simple maintenance. The modeler can make different changes in the kit and easy variations to match different configurations seen through the years in different conflicts or civil versions.
