Got the Meng T-72B3M kit with the KMT-8 so good to go.

Dual purpose, bumping your post and leaving inspiration.
The name Orcs was meant as an insult, but I read that the Russians are embracing the name and calling it their own.

Thanks for the image. I saw that on Twitter. We need a 1/35 figure of the orc to add to the Terminator kit. I am building the Zvezda BMPT Terminator-2 kit and just primed it a few weeks ago. I don't need the KMT-8 mine plow for the Zvezda Terminator though. I have a Trumpeter T-80BVM that I want to add the KMT-8 to.

I want to do this T-80BVM that was captured by the Ukrainians. It has the KMT-8 and the 4S24 soft case ERA.


Here is the T-80BVM kit I have. I also have the ETA Ukrainian flag set and MiniArm 4S24 soft case ERA.


Meng is releasing a T-72B3 soon that also includes the KMT-8 mine plow but I already have the Trumpeter T-72B3 with 4S24 and grating cage on pre order so I don't need the Meng kit. I just need the KMT-8 mine plow and none available separately. Trumpeter makes a KMT-6 but it is different from the KMT-8.

This guy is the right hulking bulk, give him a 14.5mm KPV with an ammo belt from the can on his back but .. spendy.

Thanks for the links! Yeah, that middle link ORC would work. We would have to get it printed maybe 1/72 or 1/48 to fit on the front fender of the BMPT. Unfortunately I don't have a 3D printer.

If you have Facebook, check out this build of a Ukrainian T-80BVM. The builder added crew and one has a Viking helmet.

The driver of this Ukrainian BMP-1 is wearing a Viking helmet. Again, unfortunately I don't have a 3D printer.

Giving the Russians a "cool" nickname like Orcs was a bad move; plain old goblins would have been better (Goblin up everywhere they can!).



PS: That looks like a Shrek figure, shouldn't be too difficult to do a reasonable facsimile in putty, if you really wanted to.

If I was to sculpt something myself, it won't even look this good!  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Still looking if anyone has one to spare.
