Belgian T-15 tankette (Retrotracks 1/35)
« on: April 22, 2013, 06:55:49 PM »
Well, finally the long awaited T-15 at 1/35th scale from Retrotracks is released! I received my sample at the Wavre expo on saturday 19th of April.

The box cover shows a famous photo with King Leopold III in front of a T-15. Excellent choice.

The kit: no less than 122 resin parts, finely moulded, with very few bubbles in the resin. The protection of the exhaust (two models) are in resin but Retrotracks also offers a photoetched element if you prefer that. But seing the quality level of the resin parts, I think I will simply use the resin elements.

Parts are washed; the work will begin in the next few days!

For what I know, no, unfortunately...
