I have a Vision Models BA-64B kit ready to build and wanted it to make it a Korean War version. Unfortunately the only picture I was able to find was the remarked US captured version. How was a typical BA-64 marked by the North Korean military? Thanks.

Google is your friend. I found several pictures of the BA-64B. They are in b&w, but show the markings for it. There are also some cgi photos that the markings show up more clearly in.

You're welcome Mauro These BA-64s were accompanied by what definitely looks like a M72 sidecar motorcycle :

Thanks Frenchy, my next question was going to be "anyone know what motorcycle was ahead of the BA-64?"

Another question: would it have the black or green chassis and wheels? The trucks I know had the black chassis.

Tom, sorry to budge in, as I have nothing to add to the subject... But I just wanted to tell you that we have a Korean War Campaign going on here and we're kind off short on Armored Cars... There are all kinds of people there who are currently dealiung with the Korean war too.

So it you cared to join us, you can sign up via the link in my signature and the thread is here.

Cheers!
Stefan

One little problem with dealing with the Korean War is, does anyone make Korean soldier figures? It's nice that Dragon makes some Chinese ones though.

You could always make the BA-64B for the campaign, then find or convert some figures later. Just a thought

Unfortunatelly, apart from the chinese volunteers from Dragon, there aren't any styrene figures available for the Korean War.
You can scratch build them, by using the torso, legs and hands, the helmets, the weapons and the gear, from WWII Russian Figures, and the heads from Japanese WWII figures...

There are some Lincoln County Line figures out there (resin), but I have no idea about quality and whether or not they are still available.
