BTR 80

Slowly building my modern forces up in numbers for Modern Bolt Action games.

Came across these 1/50 scale die cast BTR 80's on ebay at a cheap price, so I purchased two and repainted them.

 I'm happy with the way they turned out.


Original colours.

Repainted.


With some Empress 28mm Modern Russians.

Next to an Empress Models BMP3.

  4. One thing - as I use these too. They aren't 1/50. They are almost exactly 1/55. BTR-80s are 7700mm long... the diecast is 140mm - 7700/140=55.
