It looks amazing Christian, the maps, bottles and equipment really add a human element to the interior, the lights are so cool ! This will be a stunner when it's finished
A quick question how did you make the maps and pamphlets ?

Thank you All!
Those kind words fuel me so much! I'm very pleased with interior - it took loads of effort and all techniques been completely new for me, big thanks for Bob who teaching us so much - your videos are far best! Bottom line is - hope you will attempt to build a ship as a step by step in near future ;-)
Anyway - moving along, just decided to change a bit a positioning of my battery and switch. I will attempt to fit this enclosure and glue whole model permanently (no more magnetic rear doors). The reason to change tactic is just future-proof solution and need to have pristine finish. My goal is to showcase this model as an opening piece to wider exhibition standard collection (Telford here I come).

Thanks again!
Cheers
Christian

@Pete
All printouts are done on my home laser printer. Also all pieces are from exact era (including stickers on bottles and those lovely boobies - they are all Russian) - have a look...

Hello Pete
Still waiting for replacement for my LED-s. The old ones been a bit too long. Had to order custom setup. Already made hole in floor and installed battery. There is not enough space for all elements - so elements had to be adjusted with high precision (LED-s). But hoping to close a shell around Thursday/Friday - then primer and colours/camo/weathering etc. Stay tuned - I will give you all an extensive report very soon :-)


cheers
Christian

P.S.
In the meantime I'm tinting lights for my Mercedes Benz. And today received a thick sheet of Styrofoam (20cm high x 40cm width x 60cm length). Will shape my Afghan road with hot wire soon ;-)

It would be really good if you could document how you add the lighting to your models Christian, I would could certainly do with the help in this area. I'm also really looking forward to the build of your diorama base

Thanks mate

Hi Guys
Since last update a few things happened. And those two weeks was far opposite to pleasure. Dealing with electric installation and trying to fit battery and switch into empty engine chamber become major task. But let's start from beginning. After completion of the interior had to finish my lighting system. Ordered a nice plastic saw from Tamiya and waited for it. When it arrived I could try to chop a fragment of the floor and get an internal access to engine bay. Cutting with this tool was straight forward although a bit fiddly and time consuming but the outcome was within acceptable quality standards (no complain here). Then I decided to try installing 9v battery basket which seemed to be ideal... another 3 days of wait for courier. When opened a tiny parcel found out it's well too large for space I had within my BTR - damn! I had to rethink my strategy... started to DIY some metal brackets, plastic holders made of plain sheet  - non of solutions was small enough and light enough to hold rather heavy battery in place. And then accident happened - one of LED strips stopped to work :-( Those flat tapes holding each LED have certain breaking point and I played with bending it too much - ugh... another 3 days waiting for replacement. At this point I let go, decided to slow down and go back to basics. Removed all brackets and simply used a fragment of my all time favorite velcro stick on tape All elements fits well and I could start to paint elements.

Here is my masterpiece :-) :-) :-) Doesn't look very clean and neat, but it will be out of sight and after further layers of paint and weathering will look better.

Then work accelerated a bit. Finally I could glue entire model together and spray with green primer.

And after an hour of spraying...

And to wrap things up an alpha gallery. Please note only wheels are painted with actual color (which will change anyway) - all you see is primed model.

And that's it - next step is pre-shading then modulation, camouflage, weathering etc... it will be a long process :-)

cheers
Christian
