This is a MOC by the way. Forgot to add that in the title. :S

I believe this was the most appropriate spot, so here you go.

This is a Russian BTR-80 which can carry two crew and seven troops. This is probably my fourth version of the thing, so I hope you like it. Enjoy!

Wow, awesome moc MdrnMrvls, that thing is sweet. Once again another member has proved that bley and grey mixing can look great, and the overall design is fantastic. I also love the little flag.

Batbrick Away!  :devil:

I never noticed it before, but Batbrick is definitely right. Your mixing of Gray and Bley make the tank look like it was once new, but has no been used through rough terrain, giving it a realistic effect!

Really well designed MdrnMrvls :thumbup:! I so regonize it from when I was in the Airborne Rangers Recon squad and had to learn all Russian vehicles by sight to be able to send intel back to HQ.  Now I want to see a BTR-60 (the classic) and a 70.

Hey, thanks! And WOW! Airborne Rangers?! That's incredible. I actually have plans to build a BRDM here soon, but I don't mind building a -60 or -70 when I get enough time. When were you in service in the military?

Pretty accurate representation. We had those in our armed forces (not sure about the exact model), only they were green.

What country are you from? I would love to build one in green, but unfortunately LEGO doesn't mass produce that dark green color seen in the Indy sets, as far as I know.

Anyways, I'm glad you guys like it!

I'm from Bulgaria. Being a country from the former Soviet block we had those. If anyone is interested BTR stands for - BroneTRansporter which is translated as Armored Transporter (being the equivalent of APC - Armored Personnel Carrier :). Here's a pic (this one is BTR-90 but it's similar):

The mixing of old light grey and new light bley creates a very good camouflage effect :)
