BTR-80 brygady Prizrak/ BTR-80 of the Prizrak Brigade
Big projects of 16th Century armies and Silesian Uprisings on my workshop, and ordered Scythians on their way. So now time for a small break. I've decided to experiment and "improve" a bit BTR-80 model in 1/100 scale issued by Zvezda for their Hot War strategic game. It is a basic model so it required some corrections and add ons.
I've decided to make a vehicle in colors of the Luhansk Peoples' Republic (probably of Prizrak Motorized Brigade) from the Ukrainian Civil War. Some number of these vehicles were captured by the separatists from Ukrainian army and delivered from Russia (It's probably the case of this vehicle because it has its identification numbers obscured).
I do not intend to develop Ukrainian Civil War project or wargame it (I have some restrains from wargaming udergoing conflicts). I do not exclude that as next brakes I will convert and paint Zvezda BTRs in most interesting camouflages I will be able to find (to train various modelling techniques).
