Hi Everybody;

"Well O.K." I will talk A Lil-bit even tho we already discussed this Topic already ! I have already built both the Takom, and Panda kits of the T-14; And I was anxious about the Zvesda kit ! Well I was really Disappointed with this kit. After opening the Box is was obvious that it was No way close to either the Takom or Panda's offering !! The Part's are on the Thick side and lack details, and I still can't understand the square hole in the bottom of the Hull ? The only thing that I can figure is that they were in A Hurry to get this on the market and Ignored the Finer details ! As with both Takom, & Panda's T-14 they all ignored there Turrets Inner details. when Building the Turrets and after there finished you should NOT Be able to See thru to the other side and see light shinning thru when looking at them from different angles. Which from A Judging stand point is A Big No No !! The T-14s Turret is just A Big Outer Shell Protecting the Gun and Optic's on the inside, and Custom factory offer's A kit of the Turret that's Hidden on the inside. In A final revue of the Zvesda kit; A Photo etch detail set is A Must if you want if you want to improve on its lack of details !

Funny how a company that makes some of the most detailed 1/72 figures around can't get that detail into any other line they do.
