Unless the suspension is poseable, I don't see the point in making tracks that fiddly.

I rather like the way Zvezda did their T-90 tracks, with rows of preformed guide horns.

Something like Meng's working suspension requires a more involved process with the tracks, but if the suspension is neutral and level like in this case then it should be far simpler.

Appeared on the Trumpeter/HB Facebook page

There are a number of box content pics - a lot of PE! At 1/350 this is a big model - over 700mm!

That BMPT looks good

I have the Tiger Models version on order, it's a lot more expensive but comes with metal 30mm barrels, and what appear to be metal missiles.

It's a bit like the situation with the Meng and Tiger AMX-30B2's, the Tiger model is more money but comes with all the AM goodies as standard

No Barrels, but a fair amount of PE.

Not on FB but if you've got £500 to spare someone on a well known auction site is selling a 1/35 Tiger one. Built as Wittman's, its a nice job but not that nice.

I look after a couple of trading groups on Facebook and we forever get people asking silly money for built kits

I can only deduce that the term "Professionally Built" has taken a bit of a kicking recently.

I have just got the Miniart T-54-1 (1947), and counted 76 sprues of plastic.

Ok a couple only had a single moulded tow cable, but it's still an insane amount of plastic.
