The tan-coloured sprues and parts are beautifully moulded, just like Tamiya quality, maybe better and that’s saying something.
I’ll let the photos do most of the talking and so here they are – enjoy what you see…
Various hatches are supplied as separate items and so you can pose these open and, ideally, include a figure or two (not included).
Tracks are click together featuring their unique Meng method (see the Meng T-90A full build for how this works in practice)
Some nice refinements with grills and other small details included.
There are more of these than you might expect for an MBT – various lenses for the optical gear that’s fitted to the AMX is included – all perfectly moulded and packaged.
Poly caps too!
You get a set of vinyl poly caps for the road wheels – suggesting they can actually work – not sure on the practicality of that – sounds a bit toy-like, but see Mark’s full build for how he tackles this.
Nicely presented and has the usual exploded views and colour call-outs. Vallejo paint references are included in a chart supplied.
5 different finish options are included and there’s a small decal sheet to cover these and all cover various Russian Motorised Rifle Brigades. The Cartograf decal sheet looks to be good quality with markings in register and good colour.
