From"Wikipedia"..... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moskvitch

"""""Moskvitch was an automobile brand from Russia produced by AZLK from 1946 to 1991 and by OAO Moskvitch from 1991 to 2002. The current article incorporates information about both the brand and the joint-stock successor of AZLK for the sake of simplicity.

OAO Moskvitch was a privatized venture name given to the former factory in order to avoid legal issues after the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991. Since the factory had no assembly branches outside Russia after 1991, its name is largely used today to refer to the building located in Lower Eastern part of Moscow and abandoned since 2006.

The word moskvitch itself translates as "(a) Muscovite" into English. It was used to point out the original location of the cars manufactured outside of Russia's capital, Moscow."""""

The only 1/60-ish diecast made in USSR I've seen was Vaz 2101 - pretty rough casting at all, but it has its own charm :) I had it, but I've decided to sell since I have 1/43 version which was much detailed :)

Beside the VAZ 2101 in Matchbox size they made some military vehicles in Matchbox size too. I bouhgt a GAZ 69 Jeep from pjedsel some years ago and back then he had some more military models for sale. Really heavy models.
