1/144 BKA-1125 Armoured River Boat (Soviet)

1/144 Resin Kit - BKA-1125 Armoured River Boat (Soviet) - Made by "AER"

When I first saw these I was very interested as I had never seen anything like this before, then sometime later Thomas of Switzerland writes to me with more information. It is with thanks to him that we have these photos of the kit!
I particulary like this one with a "Stalin Organ" and T-34 Turret, there is also a spare smaller gun turret that can replace the "Stalin Organ" toprovide another varient seen onthe rivers.
I dont have any yet but I think I am persued to purchase some of these!?
There is a whole series of these river and coastal craft, further details can be found here!
some excellent photos of finished items are found here:
some other BKA-1125 References!
