That looks great !
I'll get at least 2 of these.

But I don't know when, I made a registration at their site but they don't ship it to where I live... bummer.

I am not sure if it is the same to Portugal, but there is a minimum price amount to ship to the US. If you do not meet that minimum, the shipping option will only show Czech domestic mail. I had to order 4-5 sets of lights to my basket before it worked. If not, Hobbyeasy carries SKP models

I ordered some for my T-55s. Awesome stuff

What are the tiny green lenses used for?

Those are used on the small lights, pointing forward and on the sides, located on the glacis plate (both sides). The same lights are red at the rear of the tank.

Hope this helps,
Andreas

I just received mine. One thing I noticed is that SKP doesn't give you the "clear" headlight option. All the lenses look like they have a sort of black-out coating but some of the pics I see of the real thing, this isn't always the case. In my opinion, the clear headlights is where SKP's lenses really stand out.
