Comrades,
I always liked the looks of the BRDM-1 (kind of an armoured Ford GPA on steroids...) and now I finally got one on eBay at a bargain price. I already had the Eduard set for it, and intend to model a DDR NVA vehicle.
Now... Im looking for a good, detailed photo (or schematic) of the MG mount on this vehicle, but so far Ive found none. Any help?
Another question is (and I know that its an exercise on futurology): should I invest more in this model (Miniarm wheels, for example)? Im afraid of spending more, just to find a state of the art Trumpeter model of it coming around the corner.
Thanks,
76Mees

Hey Olegas- I'm doing a review of the BTR-50PK at the minute- that thread you posted is awesome, some really useful info there. Thanks a lot !

I still have one question though- where was the SGMB mounted on the PK? The Trumpeter kit doesn't seem to have any mounting points at all.

Actually Olegas, I just found out there now where the SGMB was mounted on the 50PK, so no need to go looking! Again, thanks for the links- some great info in them.
