Nice start mate, looks like it's going to be a quick build as well.

Nah, i don't think so. This model has an full interior and i am going to build and paint it.

Half way through. I have build the interior and sprayed it with the same green base color that i will later use for the model. Radio and devices were sprayed in black. Next step will be detail painting and drybrushing of the interior. I think i will add a little bit of weathering like chipping on the edges and mud/sand on the floor.

That interior is going to look great with some paint on it.

Finished the interior. I must admit its not my best work. :/ There are only few pictures of the interior of an BRDM-2 and i have found no pictures of the real radio and devices that were in the vehicle. The interior will be only visible through the small front windows or if you remove the turret.

Nice job on that interior and cool to see it closed up now.

Interior is now completed. Joined the upper and lower hull together. Perfect fit only some spots needed a little bit of putty.

The build is complete. Was really fun to build this one. The only thing i added were the cabling for the lamps.
The model is already primed black and is drying right now.

Looks great and nice work on the wiring as well. My fingers are too fat and clumsy to do that.
Were the tow cables included in the kit or aftermarket?

Thanks James. The tow cable is included in the kit. Got the same problem with my fingers, they are also not small and sometime shaky.
Really hard to add small cable like that.

Haha. I know what you mean. I nearly lost it while trying to scratch build some fuel lines on my JS-3. I have a lot of respect for those that can actually do it.

Haha, i need to prepare myself mentaly for my next project. From Monday on i will be on summer vacation and will stay at home this time. I decided to build the T-72B from Trumpeter. The kit contains 1300 parts and during the construction i have to glue about 130 small PE disks to simulate the bolds for anti-radiation applique. That will be fun ......

Nice work. And be sure to keep us updated on that T-72

Thanks Fabian. I think i will start on monday.

Painting is complete. Next will be detail painting and wheels. I decided to go with a weathered model. Faded paint, some scratches, paint chipps and a little bit of rust.
20. June 2016 at 15:38:40
Finished this model. I think thats my best model so far. No more clean models in the future.

Wow, excellent job on this mate. I really like the chipping/worn paint effect you've achieved on the sharp edges.
Did you use a wash to do it? Looks fantastic.
16. July 2016 at 20:43:02
Very good chipping. I like how the model ended up looking
16. July 2016 at 20:52:07
Thank you Dan. It was my first model where i used the sponge chipping technique.
16. July 2016 at 21:05:10
Thanks James. The whole chipping was done with a piece of sponge and MIG Chipping paint. For the worn effect/streaks i used dark brown and rust wash.
16. July 2016 at 21:11:49
Cheers. Nice and subtle but really effective. Would like to have a go at trying it myself.
17. July 2016 at 03:52:24
