    Hi,

    let me introduce another simple model. It serves as a test for similar in scale 1/25. Template we all know:
    The PT-76 is a Soviet amphibious light tank which was introduced in the early 1950s and soon became the standard reconnaissance tank of the Soviet Army and the other Warsaw Pact armed forces. It was widely exported to other friendly states, like India, Iraq, Syria, North Korea and North Vietnam. Overall, some 25 countries used the PT-76. more at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PT-76


    Soon I will add more photos and preview parts ... if anyone would be interested

    Hi, some another photos ... I have paper model BTR - 50 in this size too (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BTR-50). I put maybe later. I prefer white models, everyone can design their own camouflage. But here I can also insert color option ... but ... it's a very onerous (maybe right world is confining?, i dont know) :)

    When you wrote PT-76, I thought you meant one of these:

    The amphibious tank will do just fine though. :)

    Oh, you're doing a BTR-50!! I wish I had one of these just to drive around. I had an idiot today driving behind me like a jerk because he wanted to pass me and stayed 1" inch off of my rear bumper. I finally jammed the brakes as hard as I could. , I would have driven the BTR-50 over his car !! :)

    After long deliberation, I decided to add some photos of the model BTR-50.

    So, what you see on the poor quality photos, the construction of the first prototype model. Some parts still does not fit exactly (descriptive geometry and sometimes I mess - Please excuse worse quality of execution).

    Many parts are identical with the model PT-76th When this model will be like, I add more pictures ...
