  1. Looks great Dmitry and thoroughly detailed despite its small size. I practically have no experience in armory, but I like this a lot.
    All the best!

  2. It’s the first time I’ve learn about this tank existence, given the writings On it, is it a Spanish Civil War machine? Anyway it’s very impressive, looks bigger than the scale in certain photos something that always gives me certainty that the model is extremely well achieved. Thanks for sharing!

    • @holzhamer Thank you Pedro! Yes, this tank looks like a typical design from late 30th or early 40th, and this is really so - it was developed in 1935. The interesting thing is that Strv m/40 was in service till 2002. My prototype is from 1965, Dominican Civil War.

  3. Nicely done Dmitry.

  4. Nice work. The tracks are very well done, which is usually the weakest point of 72 scale tanks. Also nice to see an unusual subject.

  5. The match stick is the only thing that gives the scale away, great work!

  6. Excellent work!

    I built that tank a while ago and it's a really great kit.

    Cheers from Sweden

  7. Very nice work on the little Stridsvagen Dmitry and great to see it in these rarely seen Dominican markings. I love these little IBG kits, even though I'm normally an aircraft modeller as well.


  8. Just a awesome work! Incredible!
