BTR-60 PU Command Vehicle

BTR-60 PU Command Vehicle

Postby watchdog » 28 Apr 2009

My entry for the groupbuild is the BTR-60 PU Command vehicle, the vehicle is a kit bash from a Ace kit and a ICM kit plus a few bits out of the the old bit box.
Each command variant of the BTR 60 PU was different this was due to the types of radio's carried, the turret hatch was commonly welded over and a generator fitted on the roof , other variants were fitted with a extending antenna which i have portrayed with this model, also on the photo I used for reference it commented that the shooting ports had been welded shut.

I will be using the vehicle for my Russian MRR which I will get around to starting later this year, hence why it looks a bit war weary and missing a few parts.

Hey, anybody with Haddock in his avatar is a front-runner for me!
Nice work stowing up the BTR. How easy was it to marry the ACE and ICM kits? The angle of the front plates is a bit different in each- did it take filler?

Aris,

it was a bitch to match, loads of 'green stuff' to fill the front plates,but it turned out ok, the ICM wheels and suspension were total rubbish, the ACE kit wheel assembley was a bit fiddley but worked perfect with the ICM bottom section married to the ACE top structure.

Cheers

And again a vehicle for land and water alike. The subject seems to be quite popular among guild members. :grin:
