Cool! 8)


I wish more companies would release their armour with interiors either as part of the kit or as a separate boxing, as Meng did with one of their Bradleys, which gives builders an optional made-to-measure detail set which is much cheaper than most resin upgrades.

I'm thinking a T-54-1 would look very good in German marking as part of a '46/'47 scenario.  Once could also model the one in the Red Gambit series.

Great minds think alike. ;D

I was thinking nearly the same thing with a T54/55 hull and a modified M41 the turret, maybe throw on some zimmerit. And if I we're really ambitious, I could try German running gear.

The one thing that would make those figures look even more Russian/slavic would be if one of them was squatting. Maybe wearing a tracksuit.

I wouldn't be in a rush to buy it, one of the local IPMS guys is building it for an IPMS Journal
review, he's a very experienced armour modeller, and he feels the extreme parts count (56 sprues)
is pointless overkill. The full interior being nice and very well moulded/detailed but hidden when
the kit is finished. He did say that a simpler, lower priced, version of the kit is to be released.
