Our pal Francesco Fondi, of Hobby Media, sent us a link to this staggeringly detailed UAZ-469 ATV. Wikipedia sez of the UAZ-469:

The UAZ-469 is an all-terrain vehicle manufactured by UAZ. It was used by the Red Army and other Warsaw Pact forces, as well as paramilitary units in Eastern Bloc countries. In the Soviet Union, it also saw widespread service in all state organizations that needed a robust off-road vehicle.

The video kind of goes on forever, but given the impressive craftship in evidence here, I can see how the builder can’t get over his own handiwork. His website is in Italian, but there are tons of pics of the build and you can see how he created some of the components, such as 1:10 scale leaf springs.
