The model is now finished and ready to paint. The BMP is a little bit overloaded, something that is not typical for russian/soviet IFVs. I want to show an BMP that loaded some goods & ammunition at the main base and is moving to an outpost. Ammo crates for shells are from SKIF and the small wood crates for ammo/grenades are from Eureka.
I scribbled some lines with the hobby knife to simulate wood planks as the Skif crates do not have any textures.
The road wheels are made from resin. It was my first try to cast resin and it was a partial failure
I forgot to squize the slicon mold to remove the air so i got about 2/3 of the wheel.
But hey i can use them the way it show on the picture. I will cover the missing part with some blankets made from miliput.
The fuel barrel is from the T-64 kit. The holding stripes will be removed and the holes closed.
Both soldiers at the back are from the ICM 35637 - Armoured Carrier Riders.
I am going to scratch build a pack of cigarettes for the left one so it looks like he is showing it to the other guy. Something like " Want some smoke?".
The soldier on the turret is from ICM 35601 and represend a sovie tanker. Currently i am modifying the figure so it will look like he is wearing an light tanker jacket.
