Oshkosh MK23 MTVR Cargo Truck [ZEUS MODEL 1:48]

30 March 2024

Arrived this week from China as my latest addition for my collection and today have taken the time to post the first photo of this kit to my PoweredbyCat Series in my collection:

  • Oshkosh MK23 MTVR Cargo Truck

The Oshkosh MTVR or Medium Tactical Vehicle Replacement is a purpose-designed military truck for the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps. The MTVR entered production in 2005. It replaced the M939 and ageing M809 5-ton 6x6 trucks. The new MTVR truck offers greater mobility, payload and reliability.

I'm always looking for new PoweredbyCat scale models to add to my collection. The Oshkosh MTVR variants have also been on my wish list for a number of years because these trucks are powered 1:1 by a Caterpillar diesel engine.

The Oshkosh MK23 MTVR Cargo Truck is powered by the Caterpillar C12 ACERT 11.9-liter turbocharged diesel engine, developing 425 hp. 

I recently discovered a number of different Oshkosh MTVR variants in scale 1:144; 1:87 and 1:72th on Ebay at  NT2-model friends (seller qizin_9035) from China. They are printed as 3D Kits under the name ZEUS MODEL. When I asked the seller whether these 3D kits could also be printed in scale 1:48th, the answer was positive! You can choose from different scales and different MTVR variants and order them directly on Ebay with free shipping from China.
