T-80BV Russian MBT (1/72)

February 26, 2023 · in Armor · · 10 Comments

's T-80BV.
At Trumpeter 1/72nd scale models, i'm always a bit skeptical about quality as far as details are concerned.
They are not bad, clean casting and good fit and so on, also here everything is available, but I am bothered that always somewhere in the finish is saved on the details.
For my taste, small but essential details are often missing.
In order to satisfy myself a little better, I made a few minor changes and added small details that I took mostly out of the leftover box.
In addition I used a gun barrel from OKB Grigorov (S72065) and the commander ́s shield from Armory (AR PE7252)
The anti-tank barriers and letters were made by a friend of mine with the 3D printer.

But despite everything, they always offer sufficient quality for "quick fun" and little money - that fits.
