Emre Efli's Dragon BMP-2, served straight out of the box, was his entry in March's Dragon Model of the Month. Here we get to see more views of this fine and subtly finished model of a vehicle in service with the DDR's Nationale Volksarmee.

Emre, that is a beautifly done BMP! Paint and weathering is fantastic. Well done man!

Nice build, Emre. Love the way you have "blended" the different shades of green subtly across the BMP.

Thanks for sharing

Unfortunately, the model is far from this, both in terms of geometry, and in color. Do not fix all of the major and visible from the mistakes made by Dragon. Not painted anti-tank missile launcher, it should be painted in a mustard color, the firm produces a different color Akan, http://akanshop.ru/index.php?page=shop.product_details&flypage=flypage.tpl&product_id=518&category_id=40&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=2
The reflection of triplex glass is no green on the Soviet or Russian equipment, it is blue or purple, depending on the angle.
That may be many more to list errors, but it will take a long time. My advice is to be approached more carefully to build a model to collect the required information and study well. Such a model on the Russian sites is better not to show, if you do not want to much criticism. Good luck.

Olegas, you are correct in your assessment BUT I think the point was to build the kit out of the box and show what it would look like. There is something to be said for just building a model for fun, no matter how inaccurate. And this is a good build considering the base kit.

However, your comments on the colors are noted. Sight glass is blue or purple...did not know that there was no green. And the silver color of the ATGM is supposed to represent a training round, not a war shot.

Yes, I know, Silver color painted for parades and mock-ups, as a rule they were just empty containers.
Judging by the color, technique dusty, so I doubt that this is a ceremonial one and it was better ATGM painted in mustard color.
