USSR
APCs & IFVs

Note:  The Soviet section has been broken up into a number of subsections, because the original had gotten far too large.

A note on the paint color of Soviet vehicles:  Most of these shots look less green and more brown than they appear in real life (I assume it is due to the flash, I don't really know).  However, I have not finished most of my vehicles in the black-green frequently seen on 1980's Soviet vehicles on parade.  Rather, I chose a greenish-khaki (Soviet Khaki #2, PollyScale) that seems to be a far closer match to the way Soviet vehicles actually appear in the field.  When I have used black green, I have drybrushed Soviet Khaki onto them.  I have not painted anything in the various light green shades sometimes marketed as WarPac paint, as I have yet to see decent photographic evidence that it was ever used outside of parades.


T-15 Armata
IFV version of the T-14 Armata MBT.  A 3D printed model from Javelin 98.




BMP-T
GHQ model of heavy IFV on MBT chassis.










BMP-3
Post-Cold War AIFV.  The GHQ model in several paint jobs.  













A pair of GHQ BMP-2s, painted about 6 months apart.  Note the minor detail differences.  GHQ's BMP-2 is much better than their BMP-1


Another Group of GHQ BMPs, painted recently on new Terrain Maker scenery.  Even with the flash, the paint job is noticeably darker but heavily weathered.


This is a pair of them, showing the heavy weathering


More GHQ BMP-2s, this time in a camo pattern.


This one is in the Reaper three-tone scheme




CinC BMP-2
A better model in many ways than its GHQ equivalent -- particularly since it comes with the missile launcher as a separate part.


ISM BMP-2
A close copy of the GHQ model, with baggage added




ISM BMP-2 Improved
This is a speculative upgraded BMP-2 from ISM, with (apparently) reactive armor and a dual ATGM.  An interesting concept vehicle, but the execution of the model was poor.  These came as part of a company pack.



Here is a trio of GHQ BMP-1s.  Its an old model, and frankly one of their worst.


Another shot of the GHQ BMP-1, with a different (more worn) paint scheme


CinC BMP-1
Molded with a separate turret, it is clearly superior to its GHQ counterpart.


Heroics & Ros BMP-1
A bit more blobular (is that a word?) than the previous two, but not all bad overall.  My paint job doesn't really do it justice.


Custom BMP-K Command Vehicle
Built by a good friend, and painted and mounted by me


BTR-T
APC based on tank chassis from GHQ.  A 2013-14 model, and really quite impressive








Kamaz Typhoon
Modern Russian protected transport vehicle.  A 3D printed model from Javelin98.




GHQ BTR-80
Best BTR model I have seen so far


And more paint jobs...




ISM BTR-80
With what appears to be an AT-4 or AT-5 launcher on the turret.  At least I think this is the BTR-80... It has side doors, but the exhaust system seems wrong, more like that on the BTR-70.




H&R BTR-80A
BTR-80 with 30mm autocannon in oerhead weapon station


GHQ BTR-80A




ISM BTR-80U
Command variant




This would appear to be a slightly difference version.  Frankly, one of these is probably a BTR-70 and the other a BTR-80.




GHQ BTR-70


Three CinC BTR-70s pass by a roadside workshop




GHQ BTRP-60PK




Two GHQ BTR-60Ps






CinC BTR-50s
I didn't black wash these models, but will probably go back and do so.  These models represent the open-topped original model.


Skytrex BTR-50


I believe this is an older GHQ BTR-50, with a mortar on the back


BTR-50PK
These models are by GHQ (left), though this may be an OT-62 (not currently in their catalog), Skytrex (I believe), upper right, and H&R (bottom).  The numbers are Micro Mark Soviet vehicle numbers.  They came in a sheet of about 700 (including red stars), and I would love to know where to get more.


GHQ BTR-152
A newer model from GHQ, and an excellent addition to their lineup.


GHQ BTR-152K
Command version of the BTR-152.  These models really need aerials.  Eventually I'll get to them.



ISM BTR-152
Not a very good model at all


Two GHQ BMD-1s


GHQ BMD-3
A fine new model from GHQ












CinC BMD-1
The detail is less pronounced than on the GHQ model, but it is still quite good.


CinC BTR-D
Air droppable transport


ISM Version




ISM BMD-3




CinC MT-LB


ISM MT-LB
This appears to be the Heroics & Ros/Navwar MT-LB covered with an impressive amount of baggage.  I probably overdid it on the black wash.


GHQ MT-LB
