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

"And whats the tank next to it in the last photo? "

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?
