Italeri New Tool 1/72
Fans of small-scale armour and military vehicles have an ever-growing selection of subjects to build, and the quality seems to improve constantly. A good example is Italeri’s all-new 1/72 T-55A tank (kit 7081)… essentially a T-54 with the provision of NBC (nuclear, bacteriological, chemical) gear. The kit comprises five green styrene runners packed with parts, some being very small and delicate. The standard of moulding throughout is impressive, and refinement is plentiful. This is particularly evident on the turret, with its miniscule (and to scale) bolt head detail and crisply moulded hatches, which are separate items.
