Here a a few pictures of my recently completed BAT-M from Panzer shop..it took a lot of mods and scratch building to get it to here
I binned 40% of the kit,not for beginners and not for the faint hearted but still a really enjoyable 3 month build

Impressive job Roy ! AFAIK, Panzer Shop kits are not for those with a limited budget either

Masterful job Roy. Just finished viewing the blog, it is a veritable instruction manual for constructing this project. Very grateful for that. Have always been fond of this vehicle and its relative the ditcher/trencher thing (BAT ??). Too many great prospective projects out there.

Very nice build! Congrats for finishing that one, I know what it means (featured it in 2007):

https://armorama.kitmaker.net//features/1857

As I see your vehicle it looks like you decided to go for a non-soviet version (as I did)? What were your resources (pics etc.?)

I only can say: I'm happy to see another one building these nice vehicles!

Roy - that's an incredible build! I have always loved the BT and AT vehicles. Sure wish a plastic version was available. Keep up the fantastic work!
