"""Very nice T-72. Probably my favorite modern tank because it is so sinister looking.

Are you going to paint it in the 4-color Bulgarian camouflage scheme?
Apparently the included photo was taken during a parade in Sofia...

-Harq """
Еxactly my T 72 is like tank in military museum in Sofia only in green color http://www.md.government.bg/nvim/_bg/
Yes is sinister looking In Bulgarian army we have T 72 and T 80 is not bad tank like present in Discovery chanel
In Sofia have parade but is not like parade in Moskou Rusia you been on this parade???


""""Very cool T-72 there fokke.. and looking at your sig, I just realised I know someone who lives in Sofia! Small world huh! """
Yes the world is very small

Hi Fokke,

Really like you tank, it is very unique....thanks for sharing your pics.
I Love Russian Armour!

Can you tell us what resin you use? how hard and how long is it to make the tracks?

Nice Work!

Hi Fokke,

Wow, You can really make a small business selling these tracks, I'm
sure it would sell, I would buy a set if it is for sale...

Thanks for the pictures, BTW How long is the curing time?

Best regards

Patrick C.

You have still done some great work Fokke. Id love a chance to give the T-72 a test run. If the tracks do hold well you may be on to something that could be a cheaper alternative in the RC market.

Very nice tanks! Love the big scale! I'm considering either getting a FOA Tiger ( http://www.r-c-tanks.com/ ) or a Battle Ready Armor Panther ( http://www.battlereadyarmor.com/ ) and converting to rc. But that won't be till Feb.

Vey nice work. Outstanding really. You started with nothing but a set of plans and built quite the machine.

Now you need to turn your attention to making 1/16 scale Sherman WSS suspension pieces!!!!

Your very welcome. I am in america now BUT i did enjoy the time i was in Bulgaria. I was there with the USAF.

BTW if you do start to have trouble with the resin tracks wearing down i do know a place where you can get 1/8 scale metal tracks for your T-72. This site sells a 1/8 t-80 but patterened their tracks after the T-72 tracks so they should fit on yours.
If you like i can PM you the link.
excuse .....can you tell me the size of your L2A6?
