1/35 scale BA-64B Armoured Car
is available online from Squadron.com
The BA-64 armoured car was produced in the Soviet
Union from the Spring of 1943 until 1946, making it suitable for any
settings from mid-war until well into the Cold War era.
Maquette's 1/35 scale BA-64B armoured car kit is
just the way I like it - a nice simple model!
The kit is well moulded in grey plastic on three
sprues that rattle around the box.
the thumbnails below to view larger images:
Detail on the tyres is particularly good , but
the machine gun is a bit half-hearted. The rest of the detail is fairly
good. The sprues do exhibit some light flash but this should not take
too long to clean up.
In fact, I estimate that the whole kit should not
take more than a few hours to finish straight from the box.
Markings are supplied for two vehicles.
I look forward to building Maquette's 1/35 scale
BA-64B. The only addition I will need is a Russian Commander to plug the
turret hatch opening as there is no interior provided.
At less than USD$10.00, this kit will certainly
not break the bank!
