That gun looks huge, prob' because the turret is so small compared to NATO MBT's

Very good. Nice to see more MODERN armor aout there. You said the tracks are cast out of resin? I take it you painted them silver then.

Thats what i thought. How does the resin stand up to use?

BTW how are things for you in Sofia? I was in Plovdiv back in July last year. Very nice place and beautiful countryside. Good food too.

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.

Here is the main producer and distributor that sells to Bigtank.de and Mark-1 tank. They also supply a US distributor and a japanese one. You can order directly from here though. They are located in Moscow but the tanks are molded in Volgograd (formerly Stalingrad).

Yes i am military. Not for too much longer though my time is coming up to get out of the armed forces.

I have not heard of the BTR-90. I am familiar with the 60, 70 and 80. I always wanted to get one if i move back to florida. Since its amphibious if i get stuck in traffic i could just hop into the nearest river and cut around it all.
Do you hve any pictures of the 90?
