BTR-152.K Armoured Personnel Carrier

ICM 1:72 Scale Vehicle Review

Soviet BTR-152.K Armoured Personnel Carrier with Armoured Roof, 1:72 Model ICM 72521.

ICM and OMEGA-K kits of the BTR-152.K seem to be identical to the model originally produced by MAC Automodelle. The completed ICM model shown here is a BTR-152.V1, i.e. it has been built without the armoured roof. The vehicle is sprayed in a matt dark green base colour with disruptive stripes in light sand colour. The box art also shows a Syrian BTR-152 with dark green base colour and leather brown stripes. The wheel hubs are painted black, but photos of East German BTR-152s show wheel hubs in the vehicle base colour. An Antenna should be mounted on the right side of the vehicle, and 1:72 scale crew figures may be placed inside the fighting compartment.


  • BTR-152.K with armoured roof
  • 7.62 mm machine gun
  • Decals

Wargamers will want a platoon of motorized infantry mounted in BTR-152.V or BTR-521.K with armoured roof. Buy the armoured roof version, and leave the roof off if a BTR-152.V1 is needed.
