    Default HO/OO wargaming model

    While digging around in a hobby store I came across a bagged kit of a T72 kit. The kit is from a company that was called Petners Panzers and came with a simple sheet of wargaming instructions. After a bit of research I found it was also sold under the ROCO Minitanks brand although I'm not sure which came first.

    A simple kit as most wargaming kits are it came with road wheels and track molded as one piece and was the first problem I encountered, as whoever bagged the kit packed 2 left sides! Being 1/87th scale a little surgery and a styrene block on the back of one of the lefts and I had the hull built.

    As for the turret it came without all the search/spot lights it should have so a little shaping and shaving of some sprue gave me a light for the main gun. The dust cover for the main gun is white glue built up in layers, I tried to do a little shaping with a tooth pick. Also had to scratch build the commanders turret hatch, just a little sheet styrene sanded to shape and I was happy.

    That just left painting, a pin wash and a bit of dry brushing to make things pop and I was done.

    This was the first Soviet tank model I have built, (I'm a German armor builder and also like submarines) so I'm sure mistakes abound, still I had a very enjoyable weekend.
