I was interested in buying either a Meng T72B3 or a T90a. I read the reviews on the T72 and they ranged from a 3 out of 5 to a 5 out of 5. The grumble was flash, thick attachment points to the sprue and the cost for what you get. The T90 got 5 of 5 and not much detail in the review. The T72 cost is more than the T90. For those who have built them what are your thoughts?

I haven't built their T72B but the T90A was very good, no flash to speak of.

Built the T90 and have the other in the stash. T90 was a good build. No problems/issues that I recall. Having done several Meng kits I think that they are very good . Only gripe is that they tend to be pricey. Good luck.

Thanks for your responses. I am looking at a T90a at the moment.
