Zvezda 1:35 BTR-70 Ukraine UN Peacekeeping Battalion, Sarajevo area, 1992-3

This is not a 100% accurate replica of this particular vehicle; the front light surround and rear-view mirrors aren’t correct. Also, some of the tires are the wrong way round, but by the time I realised that it was too late!

Looks great! I recently purchased Trumpeter's BTR-80a. This is the version with

the big auto - cannon on the turret. I've noted that a lot of the footage of burned-out 

vehicles of the war are these. Anyway, the Trumpeter kit looks like a good one.

How was your kit build wise?

Hope I’m replying to Belugawhaleman - I’m still figuring this out. The kit was OK, but the suspension was quite tricky. The wheels are meant to rotate bit they were so wobbly I glued them up. I’m not a fan of moving parts on kits, they always seem to make weak points.
