I bought this from MBK, but I think it came from stock elsewhere. Some politically-correct vandal had not only covered the swastikas with black stickers (thus defacing the photo reference sheet), but had also removed the swastika decals from the box. Sod’s law, that was the version I was hoping to build!

Holger Kranich So we can see a nice BT-42 from you in the near future? :D
26. October 2018 at 10:02:29
Nigel It really depends on your definition of "nice". :D
Let's just settle for a BT-42...with swastikas ;)
26. October 2018 at 11:01:18
Holger Kranich Hang in there, dude! We are waiting. ;) ;)
Do you plan to add any aftermarket aside from the decals?
26. October 2018 at 12:03:59
H K Oh come on, it`s a Tamiya kit. It is per definition nice :)
26. October 2018 at 12:48:32
Nigel @Holger, I'll see how it goes together. I may just make it OOTB...other than the decals! :)

@HK, some of their older tooling is showing its age (I'm currently working on a venerable Tiger I from 1989, it's OK but needs aftermarket), but the BT-42 is relatively new and has had good reviews so it should go together nicely.

The only place where Tamiya sometimes let themselves down is...the decals! And that's not going to be a problem for me :D
26. October 2018 at 14:07:52
Martin Oostrom Or whenever they rebox some **** Italeri plastic ;(
26. October 2018 at 14:51:39
Katya Hodgson That's weird, never seen anyone do it with Finnish ones, they are distinctly different to the German ones so it is odd.

I actually had the kit once, was not confident with the skill level I had at the time, so I posted it off to girlfriend in Australia, I kind of wish I had one to do now though.
26. October 2018 at 15:35:09
Nigel @Martin that's exactly what I thought when I read the reviews of the Crusader :(

Nigel Harper I've seen some reviews of this kit and there is no info re the decals. After some searching I located instructions for Express Mask ref number XT048 by Eduard. It goes some way to explaining the markings and therefore the decals. Also Osprey publishing have a title "BT Fast Tank. The Red Army's Cavalry Tank." ISBN 978-1-4728-1065-6. This clarifies how the markings were used and the decals included cover quite a few options so most wouldn't be needed.
27. February 2017 at 19:40:22
EnsignExpendabl Aleksei Rudakov goes over the marking options here and lists if they're appropriate or not:

3 red waves: yes
White stripe: yes
White stripe, black dashed line, number 12: no
White cross on the roof: yes
Rings: yes
Circle: yes (November 7th parade)
X-16: yes (also needs a white circle on the turret roof). There were also X-9 and X-61 tanks, so you can alter the decal pretty easily.

The article also goes over all the modifications needed to make the kit accurate, but those are harder to translate.

Harry Houdini The weathering was done to suit the Spanish Civil War. Those tanks mainly ran on grass tundra, so I have kept the mud to a minimum, unlike the BT-7 on the Eastern Front which were often mud soaked.
24. May 2016 at 23:22:36
Ulf Petersen Great model, Harry! (Hey, Harry Houdini is not your real name I asssume. ;))
It seems like it is not really necessary to stick to the expensive Tamiya-Kit to build a nice model of the BT-7. The Zvezda-Kit with Eduard-PEs goes a long way as well.
25. May 2016 at 06:10:09
Alistair Graham Was worth it in the end Harry. I have followed your youtube build on it so I can hopefully learn to be a better modeller.
25. May 2016 at 08:27:30
Harry Houdini In the end I did spend a bit on extras to get it to the look I wanted but still less in total than the price of a new Tamiya kit! The barrel for $2 and PE for $10 takes this kit to a whole new level even better than Tamiya.. its just the track links I could not live with.. but there is a solution to fix them if you build OOB
25. May 2016 at 08:56:22
Bart Goesaert nice build and paintjob on this one...
25. May 2016 at 10:01:43
EnsignExpendabl Looks amazing! I was wondering if the Bronco tracks are worth it (here they cost as much as the entire BT-7), but it seems like they are!
25. May 2016 at 14:56:19
Harry Houdini I was lucky to get the Bronco Track links for half price... however later on I discovered a trick of hiding the repair in the kits link and length tracks by taking out one of the rear bottom single links. This hides the mismatched join under the rear drive wheel and has been a successful solution by others to fix the oversized tracks supplied in the kit.
25. May 2016 at 20:43:06
Harry Houdini The full build is on Youtube if you are interested, showing the track link issue and how I solved a number of problems with the kit.

Fabian D. Seems you like the old 'n crappy kits.. ;) great work on this one
8. March 2014 at 09:29:22
George Bacon Thanks Mates! :).

Frank, I bought this kit maybe 5 to 10 years ago "used" on eBay. I've had it in my stash since then. I was very leery of the the ancient decals, so I tested one on the bottom of the tank. They are super-thin, strong and disappear with a gloss coat (undercoat and overcoat) :). They may be the best decals I ever used! For a manufacturer, they don't say anything except "Eastern Express" on them. Enough for 4 or more vehicles :)
8. March 2014 at 14:23:46
william wise Nice job George, your making this kit look pretty good maybe a nice substitute for the overly priced Tamiya kit
8. March 2014 at 16:47:17
George Bacon For all those interested in the Hobby Boss track links, they came up one inch (6 links) short on both sides :(. Fortunately, I was able to use links from the kit to fill the gaps. Had to modify and create guide teeth to match the Hobby Boss.
10. March 2014 at 22:14:18
Hunter Cummins I will not buy hobby boss kits tracks lol
10. March 2014 at 22:16:49
william wise thats not very cool at all at least you were able to complete it with the kits tracks, thanks for the heads up

Alan Rush Hi George. I have followed the step by step and the finished model looks great. The PE adds a lot to the kit and the finish and weathering look great.

11. March 2014 at 20:10:00
George Bacon Thanks Hunter and Philipp. But, next time I'll invest the money on the Tamiya kit :)
11. March 2014 at 20:38:05
Alan Rush Looks fantastic George! Following your build the details added really add and as others have said, smaller things liket the headlights and the chain hanging on the front really add to the realism. Especially like the dirt added to the running gear and lower hull.
11. March 2014 at 20:52:09

Vlad Shatilov No problems with built Frank. Tamiya kit is perfect as always. Good details. I used only Friul tracks and metal DT machinegun from Model point as aftermarket.

Again, another family that should be merged, I think. Topics 'BT-2', 'BT-5', 'BT-7' and 'BT-42' are variants of the same tank, main external difference is the turret/armament.
This is like we had 'Bf 109B', 'Bf 109C', Bf 109D'.... topics.
Topic should be 'BT' or 'BT Series'
