But Pete did. He goes every year to visit his parents and shop at the big show.
This year he gets home and sends me an email. Found a 1/72 scale BTR-60. Yours for 5 bucks.
And here it is just out of its packaging and on the arm of my recliner:
Here are some of my ANA checking out their new ride:
And some comparison shots with one of my LAVs:
I think it compares pretty well and seems in scale.
According to Wikipedia (yeah, I know, I know....) the ANA have a few hundred of these still. Most pictures I see are technicals and Humvees though. But maybe they're keeping them somewhere? Who knows? I'll have to figure out a way to get it into a game.
From what I can remember I saw a few in Kabul, but that was back in 2006.ReplyDelete
Those are from China I think and have recently been on sale in discount shops in the UK for £2 each. Great value for the gamer.ReplyDelete
