1/35 A Pair of Beauties
I have seen some fine looking coloured aircraft of late so being a tank builder I thought it was time we saw a pair of colourful tanks for a change,The BMPT nicknamed Terminator is Russian,it exceeds 2 motorized rifle platoons and includes 6 BMP with about 40 personnel,it is able to conduct intense fire against any target regardless of its height and up to 4 targets simultaneously,(the kit is a Zvezda),Now the Chieftain MK5 well everyone has heard of this one it was around for some years from the early 60’s to this MK5 in the 70’s,the camo is a interesting read,to much to put down here,but in a nut shell story goes that a officer was looking out his window and noted that the old green camos of ww2 did not blend into the urban war fare of today,so he came up with this design,it was used in Berlin,and the English painted every vehicle they had the same colour so the Russian had a hard time trying to do a head count.I saw a movie of this tank on You-Tube and believe me it real does blend in.(This kit is Tamiya)So for all you tanks guys enjoy these to colourful beauties.Thanks
