1/35 Meng BMPT Terminator - Urban Pacification Unit
« on: November 08, 2015, 05:03:35 pm »
This is something a little different to come off my work bench - an armour subject. In this case, it's the 1/35 Meng BMPT Terminator

Great kit - goes together really well. The tracks were confusing to start with but after doing a few links it's easy to do. I gave up on the jig they supply - it just wasn't working for me, so the were all joined together using the spacing on the sprues.

I ummed and ahh'd about the scheme for ages: I loved the splinter pattern but not the colours and I liked the 2009 colours but not the camo pattern. I know - I'm very finicky like that. So after a while, I decided to do it in Urban Camo colours and I must admit, I am really happy with my choices.

All painted using Gunze and Tamiya and I tried out Vallejo washes and varnishes for the first time. I am suitably impressed. I did seriously contemplate doing some chipping however, I wanted it to look used - not abused.

I realised I had forgotten to add the tow cables and wing mirrors before I shot the following pics, so I do know they are missing (they are one now though) and I've just finished the EMT units that will also go on the front.

Enough talking, time for the pics:



























Well, I think that's enough pictures. Any and all comments, critiques or suggestions are always invited

Thanks for looking

Si

They are the A242 30mm guns but I do not know if they are shared with the KA50. It wouldn't surprise me if they were  :thumbsup:

They're 2A42 cannons, and yes, they are the same as the BMP-2, BMP-3 co-ax and KA-50. It's a very good gun, with a round that's only a smidgin less powerful than the GAU-8A/Oerlikon KCA round.

thanks guys
Sorry for the delay in replying
I'll be posting some more armour soon - although it's not technically a tank or AFV

Oh, and those are rocket launchers on the side
