T-70M Mini Art

Hello gentlemen!
As if I do not have enough unfinished projects I decided to start a new one.
My victim this time is a T-70M from Mini Art with Eduard PE set.

Here’s what I got so far


I must admit, I was surprised by rather good quality of this model. I was anticipating tons of sink holes and ejection pin marks, but so far only a small amount of putty was used to make a weld in front of the hull.

Nice start This is a nice kit and I have the same kit with Eduard PE. Mine got stalled along the way. Anyway, look forward to your seeing more of your build.

I just started the captured German version of this kit. I, too, was anticipating a lot of problems before I even opened the box. To my surprise, it is indeed a very nice little build. Just some very mild flash to be removed on some parts, thats about it.

Nice work on the fenders I have collected a number of reference photos for the T-70M. Let me know if you need to check anything.

Are you going to re-work the turret shape or just leave it as is?
