Hi Everybody;

Very interesting revue; and I don't quite understand the layout of Zvesda's offering Zvesda should be almost the expert on the T-14 as they had access to the Zavod in designing there kit. After watching the revue, it does not look like they included some of there finer details as they had in there T-90 offering ! And the Big square hole in the Bottom of the Hull is Weird. Some of the Feature's seemed nice and some were quite disappointing. Now I already have two T-14s in my collection, I mite add this kit just to see if I can Figure why they decided on some of its features. And compare it to Takom and Panda's kits !!

CHEERS; MIKE.

Definitely looks more builder friendly than the Panda kit.

Hi;

I have both the Takom, & Panda kit's; there are some details that are really nice on both kit's and it all comes down to personal choice. Some don't like Takom and others don't like Panda. The one feature that Panda had over the Takom kit was the Under Hull details that Takom left out. Overall I liked Takom's plastic just A Lil-bit better.
As far as Zvesda's kit looks, I don't like A Lot of its details; But the Price of this kit mite induce Me into adding it to my collection along with the Custom factory conversion !!!

CHEERS; MIKE.
