So the T-72 is highly recommended for ANY of you 1/100 or 15mm gamers out there. What a cheap and inexpensive way to fill in your Soviet forces if you happen to play 1:1 gaming these would make great East German tanks for a Modern Flames of War game. Each one cost me a mere $8.50 (US). I bought 7 so I'll have yet another Battalion at 1:4 scale ready to hack through the Fulda gap.
Size-wise, and I'll let you all judge for yourselves, the T-72 fits in perfectly. The T-62 on the other hand is massive and would most likely fit in better with my 1-72 troops. That's not to say I wont use it for modern 1/100 games, just that they need to be far, far away from my Khurasan T-55s...
|Petner T-72 with the details not on yet (seriously, they give you a TC figure, an AAMG, smoke discharge units, stowage boxes, and fuel drums).|
|Not bad! Not too much different than the 1/100 in size.|
|For closer comparison|
|hurrying to Crimea as fast as we can get there, sir! Here a 1/87 T-72 follows a 1/100 T-72 for scale comparison. Like I said, not bad.|
|Ok - the T-62 in 1/87 next to its tiny cousin, a Quality Casting T-62A in 15mm....massive difference.|
|The detail on the Petner Panzer is incredible though, I really really love the kit. I'm tempted to start buying up Roco M-48s and M-60s for my NATO and Israeli troops.|
Overall, I'm very happy with this acquisition. Lots of extras for the bits box, decals, and beautiful tank models. And they're way sharper looking than the metal castings.
