Is this a rebox of DML T-80UD?

Hi;

Your Best Bet would be save your money; The Old DML stuff is Pure Junk !! There is Not A Single Item that is in Scale as touted as 1/35 ! The kit is Closer to 1/32nd; Now if you want something to practice on or try your Hand on Scratch Building, then go ahead and buy it !

CHEERS; MIKE.

Don't mean to hijack but is this also true with Zvezda T-90 kits (being out of scale)?

The T-90 kits are all-new molds by Zvezda. Their first version had some critiques that it conflated different versions, and its ride height has been questioned by some reviewers. The newer version may have corrected this, but it's based on a proposed version shown at a military industry show.Not known if the Russian Army will acquire this, as low-rate production of the T-14 has finally begun.

The Zvezda T-72 and T-80 kits are 1989-vintage Dragon molds, and are based on Cold War era drawings derived from long distance photos.
