Trumpeter BRDM 2 (Early)

Post by Chris Smith »

This is the third build I've started without finishing the other two but I should get everything done in time :?

This has been a joy so far, great fit, well thought out.

The filler on the upper hull sides is unused location points which needed to be closed up. There is a nice interior but even if I wasn't doing this closed up it would be very hard to see very much of it so I left it out. The belly wheels are assembled but I've left them off for the moment so I can paint them, I'm not sure that I could get in to paint them otherwise.

With no interior to worry about, it must have gone together quickly.

Well, it is a fairly nice looking little (?) vehicle ;) Nice work so far Chris!

Might get one too - in the far future that is, got enough other things to do first :lol:

John,

I did toy with the idea of fitting the interior so you could see it with the turret removed but decided against to save time.

Rob,

finished it off this morning ;) Just not sure when I will get time to paint it, kids come back from their Grandparents tomorrow for the last three and a half weeks summer holidays.

Philipp,

not so little, same length and width as a M4A4. Get one, they are little gems.

Ready for painting

Missing are the clear lenses, headlight guards, tow cable and brackets and a reel with a rope on it which I'll add after the base coat is on so I can paint them seperately along with the belly wheels.

That was fast :shock:

Great work Chris! I suppose it helped that it's not quite as unbearingly hot up where you live compared to here? :lol:
