BTR-60PBScale model 1:25.

By order of the Minister of defence of the USSR from 29.06.1964 the Soviet Army was adopted by the BTR-60PB, created by the design Bureau of Gas under the leadership of V. A. Styopa Ledkov. This machine was the last and the most successful modification of the BTR-60. Serial production of the BTR-60PB was carried out on the Gas 1965-1975 G.

General description

The BTR-60PB is a wheeled floating car armed with a 14.5 mm heavy machine gun KPVT and coaxial with it 7.62-mm PKT machinegun in the tower installation.

The four-axle armoured vehicle with all-wheel drive, has high dynamic qualities, high maneuverability and a good ride, able to follow directly behind the tanks, immediately to overcome the trenches, trenches and water obstacles.

BTR - 60PBThe hull of the personnel carrier is closed, with a smooth bottom, sealed, made of armor plates, equipped with blower-separator to create a pressure cleaning charge air from radioactive dust and serves as a base on which are mounted all the units and mechanisms of the APC.


In the aft part of the hulls is equipped with two six-cylinder gasoline engine capacity of 90 HP each.


Through the power transmission from the right engine driven wheel, the first and third axes of the left engine – the wheels of the second and fourth axes. Engines and power transmission units are not connected each other and interlocked only drives management. Transmission four-speed. The drive to the wheels from the axle shafts made cardan shafts through the wheel motors.

Suspension. – independent, lever-torsion bar, telescopic hydraulic shock absorbers, double action. The wheels of the first and second driven axles (with steering gear gidrosistem).


For movement on the water an armored personnel carrier equipped with water jet mounted at the rear of the hull. Turn the APC on the water is the rudder control, interlocked with the steering control on land.


For self-recovery and pulling of similar machines jam, the armored front of the case there is a mechanical winch, driven from the drive shaft the right transfer case.


Means of communication the APC serves as a VHF radio station R-123. An armored personnel carrier is fitted with day and night observation devices. The hull is divided into three compartments: engine compartment, the fighting compartment and the driving compartment.




1. Frame


The framework consists of assemblies A; B;C;D;E;R;L (Fig. 1) Pattern of all parts frame


Glued onto cardboard with a thickness of 1mm, with the exception of the Assembly parts E and parts A13; A14, there is a cardboard with a thickness of 0.5 mm.


Assembly a (Fig. 2) items A1-A14) On the bottom of A1 to cut a hole to simulate suction bend to the intake, and then stick the parts A13; A14. In the aft part of the bottom to make deep incisions, to easily give the required radius when bending parts A1. Then install the longitudinal and transverse A2 AZ – A12 formers. Pay attention to the former A8, it is given by one detail with the Windows of the mines observation devices, where in these locations(Fig. 1 a) it is necessary to make deep incisions to the fold. For the convenience of Assembly at this stage, it is recommended to glue parts 55; 55.2; installation, A8, A8, then reinstall.


Assembly R; L. (Fig. 3) (items R1 – R9; L1-L9) This mirror Assembly, right and left, respectively. Look at the example of Assembly R (Fig.3). Gluing to produce on the order of part numbers. To details 1 alternately add details 2; 3; 4; 5; 6, further, to the finished design 7; 8 and connect them to each other detail 9.


Assembly; C; D (Fig.4;5;6) are presented in some details. For details B1 make deep incisions, to easily give the required radius when bent. Ready to assemble And glue the assemblies R and L, it follows that the design of the ARL. To the finished design to alternately glue parts C1; C2; B1; B2; VZ; B4: B5. Details for EOI pre-glue part (glazing inspection covers) 54; 54.1 M; 54.2; 54.3. On parts C1 and C2 (simulating lateral armor plates) projecting inside corner trim in the desired plane. Glue item D1 (Fig.6) pre-gluing the parts (shutters air flow units) 4; 4.1; 4.2; 4.3; 4.4; 4.5; (R;L). Frame for pasting a covering ready. If desired, the corners of the frame can be covered with strips of thin paper coated with color plating(available in the set).


Assembly E (alcove door actuator jet and sleeve reverse gear when the machine is afloat) (Fig.7) (items E1 – E6). Details first unit on cardboard to a thickness of 0.5 mm. On the details of the E6 and E1 in the same places, make deep incisions to the fold. To assemble the Assembly according to figure 7. To connect with the body only after full preparation of the body(laminated panelling) and pasting the actual Assembly E.




Glue parts 1.5; 1.6; stick details 1.10(R,L); 1.11 (R, L); 1.12(R,L).Glue the bow part 1; 1.2; 1.4(R,L). Glue the parts aft 1.7; 1.1; Stick details 1.14(R,L); 1.15(R,L); 1.20(R,L). Glue parts 1.8; 1.9; Glue parts 1.16; 1.17; 1.18 between themselves and the finished design to be pasted in the frame. (IMPORTANT! The design should be parallel to the front of the upper hull(hatches commander and driver). Installed design to paste item 1.19 To ready and covered with body glue laminated covering niche door actuator jet with sleeves reverse. The case is completely ready.


3. Wheel


Item 28.1* pre-glued on cardboard thickness 0.5 mm. to Prepare, tformat and glue item 28 (for gluing the petals to use paper with a thickness of 0.1 mm office) (IMPORTANT! Sweep left and right wheels деталь28 on leaves this in pairs). Ready to paste item 28 item 28.1* Finished the right and left parts to glue together guided by the labels. Stick of the tread – деталь28.15 across the surface of the parts 18 being guided on labels. Paste collected items hub (see Assembly diagram).


4. Suspension


(IMPORTANT! Suspension parts are on the pages of this strictly by the numbering wheels) Part designation M made of wooden sticks (toothpick). Complete collection of pendants to make after all the suspension parts are ready. The build order indicated in the diagrams.


5. The flap balneotreatment


Details with the designation M made of solder or wire. Details 56.ZM and 58.4 M (frame plate) to glue on the already glued parts 56 and 56.2, and then to give the necessary shape of the whole flap. (IMPORTANT! If the model is planned for painting, the detail 56.1 stick on top of the part 56. Without painting detail 56.1 pasted between the parts 56 and 56.2


6. Tower


The details of the formers of the tower are glued on cardboard thickness 0.5 mm (detail 2** glued to cardboard with a thickness of 1 mm). (IMPORTANT! When gluing cylinder (part 2.6; 2.7*; 2.8 M; 2.9*) to pay attention to detail 2.9* podklyuchaetsya to item 2.6 at the junction that ensures accurate positioning of the machine guns when they are installed. After gluing the formers and install the cylinders to glue part2.13; 2.14; 2.15; when you cut the parts 2.17 it is recommended that you cut only the outer contour and inner holes to be cut after podleski details 2.16 KPVT Barrel can be made of different material (6 = 1.5 mm). Holes in parts 3.6 recommended after a preliminary twisting of the workpiece.


7. Manhole covers


Details of the manhole covers first unit on cardboard thickness 0.5 mm (option three layers of paper given layer of the sweep).
