T-60 – Soviet light tank of the Second World War. Developed in August 1941 at the Moscow plant number 37 under the direction of Nicholas Alexandrovich Astrova, a leading developer of all domestic line of light tanks of the period. In September of the same year, the T-60 was adopted by the Workers ‘and Peasants’ Red Army and serially produced in several engineering plants. Production T-60 continued until February 1943, when he was replaced on the assembly lines more powerful light tank T-70. All were released 5920 light tanks T-60, which took an active part in the battles of the Great Patriotic War in 1941-1943. A small number of survivors fights the T-60 was used as a reconnaissance tanks, tractors, machine learning until the end of the war.

About kit.

Unlike previous sets of ace, this is very good quality. There are a lot of details, but everything is going very easily. I advise this kit to  everyone.

BRAND NEW 1:72 Plastic Kit, Panzerkampfwagen VII Löwe (Armory)

Brand new kit of known Ukrainian company “Armory”. The company is known as a manufacturer of photo-etched and resin kits. This is their first all-plastic kit.

I will not say much about this kit. Photos say more.

In short:
Quality casting unfortunately worse than what I expected. From other Ukrainian producers I could compare with a very good kits of  “ACE”. Not up to the quality of the models of “Roden.” Plastic has many fin. Looks very messy. Hatches are cast together with the hull and turret. Tracks cast from vinyl poor quality and have burrs.

In the end, I would say that the price set too high but since it’s new and there is no alternative, it is “MUST HAVE”.

On the reverse side of the box, you can see the other new items that will soon come out into the light.
