These scans are from the VLS monthly update. Sorry about the quality of the scan. The kit looks like it will be damn good.





The grain in the pictures is actually in the document the scans came from.

The text states the following about the kit:

*The low clearance chassis has been replicated down to the finest detail, even the cast iron surface has been faithfully recreated.
*The characteristic half-sphere turret and powerful 100mm cannon are faithfully reproduced
*Not a detail has been spared, even with finer parts such as the engine grill and cast iron wheels
*Kit #35257 Overall length: 259mm Overall width: 93.8mm
*In addition to the T-55A with enhanced deflection capabilities, the DShK-M with anti-aircraft armament can be selected as well.(not sure what that meant)
*This kit also lets you assemble the T-55A as it was produced in Czechoslovakia and Poland. Comes with 1 tank commander figure and decals for 5 different tanks.

Can a moderator change the affiliation of my post? This was meant to post in the general armor section(no affiliation). I'm not real sure how it ended up in the canadian section.

Glad Canada didn't have those or Don Cherry would be President and we'd all be speaking Canadian down here.... "Hey, that's my Toonie, Eh?"
Looks like a nice kit, I'll buy one, or two. Any idea on a N. American release date?
