I found these sprue shots of the T-26 while Googling Flak Towers, (Google is weird at times).

we are finally going yo see the T26 1939
slopped armour and turret at long last
and perhaps eventually the AT-T

Do I see individual link tracks? Fifty-eight bucks for a small tank and my favorite things -- individual link tracks. As much as this vehicle appeals to me, I may pass on this one. UM is supposed to be doing one in quarter scale.

Example:

HobbyBoss Mk. IIID at Hobby Search Japan

http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10184612

7200 Yen or $90 USD!

Blast Models:

http://www.phpshopxml.com/blamod.shop/C ... e/HOB82441

$48 USD or 36.1 Euros

Sprue Brothers:

https://www.nexternal.com/sbm/storefron ... 26517.aspx

$58 USD

HobbyEasy out of HK:

http://www.hobbyeasy.com/en/data/me5zzl ... tu0lb.html

$30 USD plus shipping


The HobbyBoss Toldi is similar in size:

Hobby Search Japan:

http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10184614

4,950 yen or about $62.15 USD

HobbyEasy:

http://www.hobbyeasy.com/en/data/vbqqjo ... meqxl.html

$30 USD

Blast Models:

http://www.phpshopxml.com/blamod.shop/C ... e/HOB82477

$32 USD

The Toldi hasn't made it to the US yet, but I'm assuming its going to cost about $40 bucks from Sprue Brothers or so..which is reasonable IMO

I'd assume the T-26 is going to be around the same price due to size. If its over $45, its no sale to me. I already have 4 different Zvezda T-26 kits to keep me busy till it comes down in price.

Intrigued to see Hobby Boss saying there are 980+ parts. Seemingly 240 individual track links, which even if that is per track, still leaves some 500 parts for quite a small tank.
