Trumpeter BRDM-2 NBC

Post by Rob Matthews »

Like the old rugby club song.......

"Bring me another one, just like the other one,
Bring me another one do!"


I've enjoyed the BTR so much that I couldn't resist this.

Plus the effects of the Soviet boys here on the site are getting to me ;)

Image

This lovely machine that I found on the web provided inspiration. I like the idea of non-combatant NBC vehicles and built an NBC Stryker previously.

Image

Instructions are line drawn clear and concise. I really like the Colour profiles included :)

Image

Image

Image

The most recent Trumpeter kits now have Mig Ammo colours specified and I believe that Mig Jimenez has provided some vehicle profiles - all Very Good stuff.

Trumpeter also package their kits well with separate internal cardboard compartments and I was impressed by this level of sprue protection

Image

As this is one of several Trumpeter BRDM variants there is some filling to do before construction

Image

Image

Image

There are holes to be drilled with well marked drill pints

Image

Finished colour will be Mig Ammo 83 "Zashchitniy Zeleno XB518"

That Mig makes exceedingly good paints :lol:

This is my 3rd Group build so far :?

Come on Shawn - lets see some progress ;) ;)

Interesting choice Rob. Looking forward to further developments.

What are the poles hanging off the rear brackets? Some form of markers placed in the ground?

Very interesting indeed. :)

If the principle is similar to the German NBC Fuchs the flags are to mark a path that is clear of any contaminants, just like with many mine clearing vehicles.

Nice choice Rob. :) I'd be interested to know what those things hanging of the back are as well.
I agree with you about Mig paints. They are very good. ;)

Philipp is right about the poles, lane markers.

Interesting vehicle. The early model is a BRDM-2 RKh-a, it is armed only with a 7.62mm MG, the RKh-b was the late variant with the standard 14.5 mm KPV MG.
Have fun with this build and especially with the poles clusters.

Thanks for looking in Guys - The bits at the back are definitely safe path markers. Well done Phillip ;)

Definite points to Mr Everett for converting my Soviet Vehicle to The Tubular Bells Wagen....... "2 Slightly distorted electrical guitars.....one slightly beat-up Soviet armoured car" etc etc. (and don't whatever you do buy the John Cleese re-release - Viv Stanshall RIP is essential ;) )

I forget that for these modern vehicles these kind of video references exist.

How Kool is that last one :P
