Hi;

FYI; Yes they will fit !!! As I have used them on my T-72 conversions ! And you can cut the Tamiya Side Skirts and modify them around the Exhaust port on the left !
I also kit Bashed four SKIFF T-64s just to use the Gill Armor !!! Now that's what you call MADNESS !

CHEERS; MIKE.



might've known you've done something like this lol one thing I noticed about the strips in question is they're at a 90deg downward angle while the actual part I've seen in pix it's more flared out from the fenders

Esci's kit is underscale all the way around so I doubt it would fit all the way.



that's not surprising considering just how bad it is. guess it'll have to be lead foil or something like

since tams T72 has the wrong side armor for a ural, tho some may have had them, will esci's strip along the fenders fit?. might even have to take the front/rear fender ends. thx
