Zvezda 1/72 T-90 Russian Main Battle Tank **review** (by Erhan Atalay)



Hello dear friends

A few years ago, If you want to make the Braille Scale T-90 tank,  ACE Model was the only option. (for plastic model kits)

Burak Özdil fought with this kit and combined with Revell T-72 kit. (Burak's T-90 tank)

Then, Zvezda announced the T-90 kits. However, we wait for a long time (I think two years) for release. During this period two companies release the T-90 tank.  Modelcollect (Erhan's T-90A review) and Revell (Revell T-90 review)

Finally, We met with the Zvezda T-90 in 2015 summer..Welcome to the "miniafv" ...

Erhan..

let's open the box... 



This sprue about turret and hull details..Very clean parts..It's not snap kit. You need glue :)









hull..



x2 – road wheels and suspension systems details



Tracks.. not vinly, one piece but hard plastic and very nice details...




decal sheet. I think it could have been more detailed.


like this : here is the Modelcollect decal sheet..


a small square about manual.. It's understandable...


Let's start.. Firstly the turret


A comparison .. with  Modelcollect's T-90 turret. Modelcollect then change mold.But I only have this. Which is the better quality .. .. I think Zvezda


Hatch detail are very nice. Suitable for open version


A enjoyable installation stage..



with my old t-90 models ..


Modelcollect T-90A


Revell T-90 S (Indian version)


Comparison about the hull.  Modelcollect's T-90 body is overscale. This is old mold. Then revised like T-72 hull. Other hulls are same scale.
