this is a rather decent kit. easy to build up into a very well detailed T72A, well worth working on, and quite suitable for tabletop wargaming, and better than anything Team Yankee has to offer. there is some flash but it's minimal, tho in the worst of places; headlight brush guards. mold lines are damn near invisible. unlike the description, tracks are no longer DS type, but rather link/length and nothing in the directions on the run arrangement. they're reasonably well detailed, however. there is a choice of glacis plate inserts for the forward upper hull, which will render an earlier version of the A type, as well as 3 outer roadwheel types, an early 8 spoke and 2 later 6 spoke. gave it a 4 on account of the tracks but not a reason for not getting it

While its nice to hear opinions on a Braille kit it would be most appreciated and overall better if there were some pictures of the kit to provide examples.

Thanks,

There are still a number of sites that allow images cost free. I use Flickr personally even though it is different from the old and Free PhotoB.

Photobucket is doing $4.00 a month and unlimited 3rd party posting, at least here, should be the same in Canada I would guess.

yeah, the detail on that is quite impressive, and the same for their T72s, right down to the proper front left stowage bin. well worth building
