BTR-90. 20 minute spruce up.

BTR-90. 20 minute spruce up.

Postby Brummie » 04 Apr 2012

Here is a 20mm BTR 90 I recently got of ebay (I think its another one of these Altaya types) when it arrived the entire model was just green save for the rubber wheels. Thus I decided to give it a quick detailing so as to make it far more respectable on the battlefield. I have a few more others to 'spruce up'. Generally I leave the diecast vehicles till last when it comes to adding etc detail and weathering, but these were that dull that i just had to do something about them!

Enjoy!

Tha isn't Altaya, but a Russian sort of idea copy. Diecast made in Russia and China, but lower quality.

Albeit that, they have some interesting models, never made before, like the BMP series, this BTR-90, the BMD, T-28, T-35....

They're fairly nice, since you've pointed that out, I have a few vehicles from that company, there are bits and bobs present on the real thing that aren't on the model. However they are pretty decent nonetheless!

I've been wondering what it's like up close...thanks for sharing! Neat work on the Russian three-colour camo.
