BAT-M engineers vehicle ..panzer shop

BAT-M Heavy Engineers vehicle

This kit started off as one of the Panzershop full resin kits.
There were a lot of missing parts/details missing from this kit and a lot of parts made incorrectly ,so there is about 45% of this kit which is scratch built.
The paints are Humbrol and this was applied with an airbrush,i used 3 tins of green paint,one was darkened using a dark green, one was as tin,and the last tin was lightened with a light green.
I applied the darkend green   over  around  the joints and  around the doors and panels,i then filled in with the normal green and highlighted with the lightened green
The whole model was colour washed followed by dry brushing using the 2 lighter shades of green .
This model was a gold medal winner at the IPMS UK  International  Scale model word 2010

PPRU-1M SBORKA Mobile recon and command post,Nato code name DOG EAR.
Based on MT-LBu tracked AFV it is equiped with a radar for the control of tactical air defence systems armed with missiles and artillary such as the Tunguska sa-19,ZSU-23 shilka, strella sa-13.the Sborka is capable of carrying out target designation whilst moving or stationary.
The kit is a 1:35 scale resin kit from SP Designs .It did build up quite well, with a bit of coaxing. i needed to add to the kit and chop and change a few items as you do with most resin kits.The tracks are the resin ones supplied with the kit.
i painted the model with humbrol enamels and added the camo freehand using an airbrush . i have pinwashed it and then drybrushed it..

This model was a conversion that i built up to use up one of the many old dragon scud kits i have in my stash
I built up the very basic drive train in the kit minus the wheels,added basic scratch built axels  gearboxes and propshafts,
I then built the left hand side drivers cab the bonet and radiator/grill and fitted it to the chassie,
I  then scratch built a new radiator/grill and the right hand side of the bonnet and fenders.from evergreen strip and sheet.
The accomodation unit and generator unit were scratch built from styrene sheet and evergreen strip and then scratch built the gun at the rear and made up and added all the fittings to the vehicle ready to paint.
It was primed and painted using  ak acrilic paint and then pinwashed and dry brushed and finally finished with a matt cote
I then cleaned up painted and fitted a set of meng weighted resin wheels..
Its a bit of a long vehicle but is something different untill trumpeter bring theres out to go with there grumble kit.


This is my largest project so far its all scratch built from styrene sheet and strip and took me nearly a year to make. it all folds up to enable me to transport it to shows
the actual vehicle serves as one of 4  radar units that are used to control the s300 guided missile complex
