Here we go guys, my new project. This time it will be an conversion of Trumpeters T80BV to the newer BVM version. Many parts will be scratchbuild, other will be used from the spare box.
Relikt Armour on the turret front is made from plasticard, tubes, evergreen profiles and wires.
I had to resculpt the gun mantlet as the BVM version got a new one.
Sosna-U periscope (the green one) is from Meng T-72B3 kit.

Turret is now almost finished, only the slat armour on the back is missing. Will add it at the end of the build. Moving to the hull now.

Still thinking about adding some crew figures. Maybe from the Zvezda kit: Russian contemporary tank crew (Zvezda 3684, 1:35)

After almost 3 Months of fun, joy, anger and tears 😄 i managed to complete the build of this bad boy. This was the longest build of a single model since i started this hobby but i must say it was the most fun build i ever had. :)

That's some impressive work there Ingo. Love the slat armor on the rear parts of the hull & turret.

Holy cow... The slat armour alone is commendable and definitely looks the part. Nice job, I'm curious to see this beast painted😎

Thanks Rene. Lower part of the hull is already painted, need to glue the wheels, tracks and fenders back. After that i can base coat and paint it.

Rene Scheiblich
Nice! Do you paint and weather the running gear before mounting it?
16. December 2019, 18:14
Ingo F
Depends on the vehicle. If there are side skirts then yes. If there are no skirts, then i am doing the weathering in one go.

Rene Scheiblich
Weathering with tracks mounted... Sounds like a damn fiddly job.
I'm curious how it will look in the end!

It definitely looks insane. I plan to do it too, but will be building on the last released T-80BVM from Trumpeter. I know that there will be a lot of work anyway, because there is room for improvement, because the T-80U and BV, on which the BVM is based, have a lot of errors. Anyway congratulations Ingo!

Thanks mate. :)
Yeah, Trumpys T-90 and T-80 have many errors and you have to put a lot of work in this models to get them right but for me its the best part as i can make many improvements and scratchbuilding. 😄
