Hi all,

I just completed pack 1 of the T-72 and if you haven't had a go at building it yet I can highly recommend this kit. The first thing you notice is just how much metal there is in the construction of this tank, when its finished its going to be a monster.

I chose the T-72 because I have a liking for Russian equipment of all types, the instructions are really easy to follow and very straight forward. Its just a joy to put it together and when the first pack arrived I couldn't put it down until I had finished it, I really love it, I cant wait for pack 2.

Everything was a nice fit and you even get a screwdriver with it, handy if you haven't got any tools to start with. I plan to do some modifications, but at the end of the build and will be following the instructions until then. If you want something really fun to build this is it! Here are some pics of where I am at the moment, happy building everyone!
