Hi gents,

After about 8 months of hard research, searching for materials , pictures and references , I'm finished my scratchbuild Brazilian APC EE-11 Engesa Urutu. In 1/16 Scale.

Some specs from Military-Today.com:

"Development of the EE-11 Urutu (crossed pit viper) armored personnel carrier began in 1970. First prototype was built the same year. Production of the EE-11 Urutu commenced in 1974. Initially produced for the Brazilian armed forces, soon the EE-11 Urutu was exported to Bolivia, Chile, Columbia, Cyprus, Ecuador, Gabon, Iraq, Libya, Morocco, Uruguay and Venezuela. Around 1 500 vehicles of this type were built.

This armored personnel carries has unordinary twin-layer armor. The external layer is made of hard steel, while the internal armor features increased viscosity. A front-mounted engine also increases passive protection for the occupants. Front of the hull provides protection against armor-piercing bullets, while all-round protection is against small arms bullets, mine splinters and artillery fragments. The EE-11 Urutu is fitted with an automatic fire suppression system, however NBC protection system was only optional.

The EE-11 Urutu is armed with a single 12.7-mm machine gun, mounted on top of the roof. There is a number of variants of the EE-11 fitted with various turret-mounted armament.

The EE-11 armored personnel carrier has a crew of one and can carry 12 - 14 fully equipped troops. Troops enter and leave the vehicle through side or rear doors, or roof hatches. There are a number of firing ports provided.

Vehicle is powered by the Detroit Diesel 6V-53T diesel engine, developing 260 horsepower. Some vehicles were fitted with a Mercedes-Benz OM-32A diesel engine, developing 190 horsepower. This APC shares many automotive components with the Engensa EE-9 Cascavel armored car. The EE-11 Urutu is completed with an unusual boomerang-type rear suspension, developed by Engensa and fitted on some other vehicles. Such suspension provides great cross-country mobility. Vehicle is also fitted with a central tyre inflation system. The EE-11 Urutu is fully amphibious without any preparation. APCs intended for ground forced are propelled on water by the help of wheels, while variant intended for marines is fitted with two waterjets."


Some materials used : plasticard and other plastics , styrene. Wood for tyres. Painted with acrylic inks.
The .50 Cal are made totally in scratchbuild, too !:)

I hope you enjoy. Regards.



The beggining.
I've found a draw in the internet. After resize , I have a plan !!:)

Very nice and welcome to Kitmaker dot net.
Is this project for a museum or hobby?
What did you use for the mirror?
Is there going to be an interior?

Hi, KoSprueOne, thanks !

This project is only personal. Just hobby.

I do not intend to be an interior. Maybe in the next project ?!

For the mirror, I use Aluminum Coated Package Films.
But it is expensive. Could use plastic bags ( snacks). The internal coating from snacks. It's metalized too.

Thanks again. God Bless you.

and sorry about my english.

Nice work! I really like the wheels! I need to make some rather big wheels for my scratch project, but I have no idea how to make them.

I really like what you have done! Nice model!

Hi BROCKUPPERCUT ! Thanks for comments.

It's all in scratch. Plastic sheet, styrene, cooper wires and wood for the tires. And a big portion of patience !!

Actually, i'm going to design EE-11 Urutu' planes in AutoCAD. I'm almost there !

Very nice project.

Few people know but an Urutu fitted with a British Scorpion turret was a contender for the Canadian Armoured Vehicle General Purpose (AVGP) competition in the late 1970s.

The MOWAG entry won the contract but the Urutu with the Scorpion turret looked very unique.

Congratulations on your Urutu!

Odilson, primeiramente peço desculpas por responder somente agora. Estive distante do Fórum bastante tempo. Voltei a estudar e não estou montando por enquanto.

Este EE-11 foi um projeto que me tomou bastante tempo, apesar de ter sido muito gostoso fazer ele. Não faço para vender, não.

Você falou que é militar. Estive pesquisando e tirei muitas fotos no 13o RC-MEC de Pirassununga-SP. O pessoal de lá me ajudou bastante.

A planta do Urutu em CAD eu acredito que esteja pronta. Vou ver se eu acho ela e te envio por email, ok ? Se ainda tiver interesse.

Obrigado pelos elogios.


English Version:

Odilson first apologize for late response. I've been away from the Forum a long time. I went back to school and I'm not assembling for a while.

This EE-11 was a project that took me quite some time, although it was very nice to assemble it. I do not sell.

You said that You are military. I've been searching and took many pictures in the 13th RC-MEC Pirassununga-SP. The staff there helped me a lot.

The plant in CAD ​​Urutu I believe it is ready. I'll see if I find it and send you by email, ok? If you still have interest.

Thanks for your comments

Thanks Nige for your comments !

I´ve had a lot of help from Military Friends. Some Military Friends was in service in ONU Peace Mission, in Haiti, working with these vehicles.

Again, thanks for your comments !

Thanks Bertucci for your comments!

Maybe my next model will be a EE-9 Cascavel, from the same manufacturer.

Regards.

Merci beaucoup

Hi, does anyone have a link to a good plan/blueprints/cad file of the EE-11? I'm finding it difficult to find much high resolution /accurate information online.

Hi ! Please, feel free to visit the link bellow to get my EE-11 Urutu CAD drawing. This is not a professional draw but it's the best I could do.
Hope help you.

Thank you! You are a lifesaver (I'm doing an adapted design for an architecture project)
