Two very nice builds. Well done. I pretty much agree with your overall opinions about these two kits. The T14 is something of a curators egg, good in some parts, bad in others. Fit is generally very good along with some fine and accurate surface detail. The biggest error appears to be that the hull is about 5mm too long, It also lacks a number of upper hull details which do detract from the overall accuracy. Instructions are also frustrating and vague at times. Oddly enough, the Boomerang is a rather good kit, great fit, fine detail and seemingly pretty accurate. It does not even feel like a regular Panda kit, but something from the leading opposition. One I would recommend to anyone interested in the subject.

Nicely done and a wake-up call to the West's military, I'm sure! The Armata looks pretty fierce & effective and I'd hate to go up against it in anything that's becoming long-of-tooth...cool model too!

Brilliant work Epi! Now I'm not too afraid to try one of them!
