FirstLook

 

This series of tanks from Mirage of Poland is based on the Vickers 6 ton tank.

The subject of this review os the Vickers Export Model (E), which was sold to China and Finland in the 1930s.

The detail in this new kit is equal to the best of Revell's new armour kits. I am not entirely happy about the vinyl tracks but they are well moulded and it will be interesting to see how they look on the vehicle.

I am looking forward to building this kit - it is definitely something different!

Recommended.

Thanks to Squadron.com for the review sample.
