A relatively new [to me] company called Modelcollect from the PRC now has a very impressive and nicely detailed 1:72nd scale T-72B with ERA Main Battle Tank (kit number UA72007) available.  Images of the kit parts uploaded to Modelversium.de by Manuel Leyva.

Looks like they do a range of T-72s and the TOS-1 flamethrower rocket system too - nice.

Modelcollect's Facebook page (LINK!) has a lot of CAD renderings of upcoming interesting stuff in 1/72! Interesting if you're interested in Soviet/Russian armour, that is. Apart from just about all marks of MBTs (T-55/62/64/72/80/90 -  :icon_surprised:), they also plan to release a Scud!  8)

Probably as a direct result of Uncle Les' great looking E series tanks Model Collect seems to be offering a stack of options.

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

Is this for real?  :icon_surprised:

Were sales of the 1:144th scale Ratte that good that a 1:72nd scale kit was justified? 

If this is for real, we may very well see a rise in sales for other accessories in that same vein, such as Jodhpurs, riding boots, and whips... :)

I like the camoflage on the land cruiser.  It looks like it was done by van Gogh.

Now that you mentioned it; yes I see the connection !

Did math:  1/72 hull length = 19.2"     Compare to 1/72 M48 hull (happens to be on desk) which is 3.75"
                               width =   7.7"                                                                                             2"

Different fin arrangement; I'd love to see a laser-guided Trazon, though, for when you really need a penetrating KA-BOOM!
