2 1/55 scale BTR-80 & 2 Modern Soviet trucks (same scale). There is a dump truck as well which I might get later. Looking at a read of Fighting Season and some play testing but I may not be back from OS before they finish the testing.

Will need some ANA from Eureka methinks.

Who makes 1/55 BTR-80s? Do you mean the Empress ex Imprint ones? They're actually 1/50.

Ebay item 221759969124. If you search his items he has the BTR and 2 trucks in 1/55.

Measures up at 14 cm L, 5.5 W and 4 cm H. Fraction out for W & H but L is spot on for 1/55. Only the front hatch opens and the interior is blank. The cam is as shown on Ebay but it is quite glossy. Top & bottom screw together but I have not taken one apart as yet. The 2 BTRs and the 2 trucks cost me $AUD 64 all up.

BTW, I found some of those Disney Pixar VW Kombis online as well and have 3 of them coming from China for $24. Will use at least one for a wreck and may pass one on to a friend for FS.

Thanks for the head's up. That works out at almost the same length as my Imprint version. I need another two to complete a platoon so these are tempting. I take it those are light in the turret and the excrescence at the rear is where the batteries go. If you would be so kind as to take some photos I'd be grateful.

There are various hatches underneath that appear to be battery housings, the batteries are not sent because of airline regulations. The turret has some plastic pieces that appear to be the lights referred to in the Ebay ad. I will attempt some pics on the weekend (long one here in Perth).

I'm hoping more stuff pops up. Interestingly I found the Pixar Kombis when I did a search for 1/55 after finding these ones.

Rubicon T-34/85 to mix in with my Warlord ones for my Egyptian Army. Looks like a nice model, can't wait to start on it. I especially like the fact that all the hatches are capable of being posed open.

Bizarre that it comes with a spare  hexagonal  turret for their T-34/76  model. Something of an afterthought I gather.

James Bond Car Collection Goldeneye T-55, marked 1/50 scale underneath and scales reasonably well to that, perhaps a little narrow but for just over $20, I'm not worried.

These two vehicles arrived from ebay and are from the Del Prado Fire Engine collection. The white van labelled as "Fourgon Fire Police, Bohemia" is a 2000 Ford E-350 XL Super Duty. The red water bowser is a 1969 Zil 130. Both are labelled as 1/57 scale. The series is "fit the box" so the scales vary between models.

Both will be disassembled, paint stripped etc. and reassembled.



Here is a link to a site with a full list of the models in the series with the scale and comments.

http://www.legeros.com/toys/guides/del.pdf

I may buy a second Zil 130 to convert into a GS truck.

The Ford will make a transport vehicle for the SWAT team or similar.

As my time is now allocated to Christmas preparations nothing will be done to these until after the holidays.
