Ian Barraclough takes a peek inside a recent release from Trumpeter Models, this time it is the ''Russian NBC Late'' and actually contains the BRDM-2 as an NBC Recce vehicle.

They no doubt called it NBC [Late] because they already have a NBC [Early]. . . Their 05513 "early" kit is based on the early hull with two triangular engine hatches while their 05516 "late" kit uses the hull with six oval covers.

The BRDM-2Rkh "late" captured from the Iraqis and displayed at APG had the belly wheels.

Thanks Kurt. Exactly what I was thinking too, concerning the APG vehicle.
