I can't help but smile at MiniArt's newest 1/35 armor kit, the hypothetical Soviet Ball Tank “Sharotank”.

This is a story of hope, not just for modellers, but for their long struggling wives and partners who sometimes don’t quite ‘get us’.
Who has ever been asked “Why do you need a new kit? You have heaps in the shed you haven’t built yet” or “Why d[...]
