Adie Roberts continues his inspirations to help inspire modellers of all abilities to work out of their comfort zone building dioramas or just trying new builds.
A fantastic diorama dedicated to all those Ukrainians defending their homeland by modelling friend Maciej Pomianowski and his BRDM-2 armored car in Ukrainian modification BRDM-2L1. Trumpeter model, 1:35 scale with Master guns and a number of custom modifications. I added side doors, pistol ports, antenna base and sensors characteristic of the L1 version and redesigned the ventilation system because it is closed in the model. In brdm with running engine should be open. This is why I had to build a fan section from scratch with flaps and engine outlets.
I saw that post. It is a very nice build. One thing I have noticed that Maciej didn’t do, is the hatch in front of the muffler seems to also be open when the vehicle is moving. Doesn’t take away from the build. Given all that, mine might be a vehicle in the motor pool/not running.
No Ryan, I just came across the images posted by Frenchy over on the Ukraine thread……copied them across to here to try and keep this one alive with references. These must be the latest UA or a local conversion they are toying with…just a leather cover over that middle cut out bit which is interesting. Insulation in the rear where the exhaust fans are mounted?
