Wow, a T-60 model that'll have more parts than the actual vehicle.  ;D :icon_fsm:

Perhaps operating off the back of a surfaced Type XXI?

Perhaps a diorama of just the upper portion above the waves?  That would be a lot easier to scratch build.

There were versions with a partially and fully enclosed glazed canopy as well - I'm sure Miniart will release them if not included in the first release.

The fully enclosed cockpit V2 and V3 types would require a completely different fuselage.


V2


V3

The V12 originally had a glazed lower fwd fuselage, the panels were removed at a later date.



The US captured and tested the V23 which had a partially fabric faired cockpit area, note the
difference in the horizontal tail when compared to the V21 represented in the MiniArt kit.


V23


V21

Be an interesting addition to a Mad Max-ish diorama with an appropriate paint job. ;)

They also have an ARV variant coming:



And the BMR-1 variant looks interesting:

The 1950's Soviet Tank crew looks very depressed. "Yes Commissar, we will not drink the anti-freeze because we can't find any vodka" But there is one Slav that is almost squatting, so this set is legit.

wonder if they'll sell the KMT rollers as a separate kit.
