I have a 6mm model that I’m certain is a BMR600 but I don’t know who makes them!!
I’ve checked the usual suspects – CinC, GHQ, Heroics and Scotia – but I can’t see this model on any of their websites. What am I missing/who am I forgetting?

I was going to suggest having a trawl through the excellent resource that is Micro Armor Mayhem:
But I see he doesn’t have any Spanish….. The BMR600 is the Pegaso, right?
actually, not sure anyone makes much of any Spanish stuff….. And the only other manufacturer I can think of is Skytrex?
Sorry for not being much help!02/06/2017 at 17:26 #63897
Are you sure you’re certain?
The only thing I can think of in 6mm are the Chinese 6-wheeled APCs which look very like the Pegaso, made by Scotia (WZ-551), and I think GHQ make versions too.02/06/2017 at 17:38 #63898MikeKeymaster02/06/2017 at 17:42 #63901
The front of the WZ551 is more like the VAB than the BMR600, I’d post some pics but I only have them on my computer……
Skytrex don’t do 1/300th, they just go down to 1/200th I believe.

I’m hoping there’s a 6mm modern manufacturer out there still to be discovered, like Planet Nine!
How detailed is the model? And is it new looking?02/06/2017 at 21:39 #63930
They are pretty standard in detailing but are quite old – pre 2000 certainly.
I’ve posted pics in Fbook and Yahoo but no one as yet can provide a clear answer.

I wonder could it be an old ISM model? They produced some pretty niche stuff until they folded. There was also a UK manufacturer that disappeared round about the same time. I forget the name, but I think the detail on their models was relatively limited, and the range pretty mainstream WW2 and Cold War.
Intriguing! If you ever find out whodunnit, do let us know!03/06/2017 at 11:22 #63985Iain FullerParticipant
Looks like a BMR to me mate. I’ve a dim recollection that maybe Skytrex might have made a BMR and a CEV when they did 1/300th. I’m emailing Andy at H&R later, I’ll ask him as they have the old Skytrex moulds.
I’m with Jim, it’d be great to know where it is from – I could do with some as Pandur’s for my Austrians.
