Some kind of modern eastern block APC ?
The BMD2 is a Soviet air portable IFV.

Looking good!  Seems like quite a sophisticated build - hopefully it's fairly robust.  This one takes me back to the old Airfix 88mm set, which was one of the best kits they did in that range.

One query - are the wheels perhaps oversimplified?  Here is what the wheels on this version looked like:





The spokes don't seem to curve outwards, and are further inside the rim.  The bolt detail is also different.   I realise you need to simplify them a bit, but the wheels are quite a prominent feature on the model, so it's worth getting them right.

Decided to forgo a crew for now  and add a few Germans checking out the KO'd Russian giants . Need to convert a figure to be peering in the open hatch and climbing on the KV II's turret rungs  , but all I have at the moment a built Germans , best order a sprue or 2 soon



Just a 2 digit number on the KV I . Nothing on the KV II . There's a Russian site ( www.kv1ehkranami.narod.ru/kv2.html ) with pictures of about 125 different knocked out or abandoned  KV IIs , the only ones with markings on the turret sides are in German use . And only 5 have the large rear hatch open ,,again in German hands . I have not seen any pictures of KV IIs with propaganda slogans so prevalent in the decal packs , Maybe they had them when they fought the Finns ? None of the ones the  Germans photographed had them

Oh its the ammo trailer , I wondered what those rectangleir pieces were for .  And a choice of game or scale barrels , nice . I can see a couple of  kit bash  twin pedestal mounts  for one of my bunkers ( when I get around to building them ) with the extra barrels

Tank riders look nice! No 222 though...?  :(
These are the new blisters, rather than new box sets..

Ah, good point! Just wondered if it had delayed, being as we haven't seen any sprues yet and have seen them for stuff supposedly further behind in the schedule.

Intrigued about that motorbike stowage, is it likely to be plastic or resin?

I managed to glue a Warlord Sherman V telephone box on the back of the M4A3E8 with a new bottle of Tamiya thin liquid poly.

However a second generation all plastic Chaos Womble was not impressed with the Tamiya glue.

Not quite what our gracious hosts had in mind for them...

Three British flimsy cans used to put the track units in a consistent location on an HLBSCo 1/48 scale resin BMD2 (two on the side being glued, one on the other side).
