Hi guys,

I just picked up the new Trumpeter BTR-60P. I always look for references online, but this time I need your help. I can hardly find any good photoreferences, do you have some suggestions?

Cheers!

Some scale drawings ?

Here you can find some drawings from the part manual for the "P" variant :

I believe good "P" walkaround pics are harder to find than other variants pics...

Fantastic pictures and images there Frenchy!

When I finish my M1117 I want to build one of the BTR's, or the MAZ-537G. I have a new affection for multi-wheeled AFV's and also self-propelled howitzers too.

Hi Frenchy!,

Thank you so much! Like you said, not much out there on the net on the P version.

Cheers,

Thanks for the pics Frenchy. I can contribute with these books about the BTR series

http://www.army.lv/files/60.pdf

http://www.army.lv/files/226.pdf

They are written in Russian, but they're full of images

Here some very exhaustive walkarounds. Pics have been taken by Mr Coast 70

I bet you own more than one PC to have so many images.

Hi Mauro

Thanks for the walkarounds, but I believe they show the BTR-60PA...the hull top front hatches are visible on some pics and the pictured hulls are lacking the small access door :

Right now, I couldn't tell one BTR from another. My goal today is to try to separate them so I can, then decide what I want to build.

Those are great pictures there Frenchy! Thanks!

You can take a look here for the main visible differences between variants (the drawings are OK, but they have mixed up the pics a bit ) :

Hello folks,

I`ve just picked up the Trumpeter BTR60 P kit and was wondering if any one has pictures or links to pictures of the MTP-2 Repair Vehicle version as i would like to do mine as one of them.

Thanks

Malc.

They are a great help, Frenchy.

Thank you.

Are they based on the PA version, or are some of them the P with an added roof?

According to the informations I've found, the MTP-2 is a converted BTR-60P : a roof is added and brackets are fitted to the sides for the recovery equipment.
