Hi All,
Here are some shots of my new project, an early cast turret T-90. Its a kitbash using the ACE T-90 and Revell T-72 M1 kits.

Thanks Fabrizio, yes the grey parts are ACE with some modifications and detailing. Working on the turret now, this is mainly ACE.

Hi Steve

Good to see more Russian stuff from you! I'm working on the same version of the T-90 too (model 1992).

Great build, I look forward to seeing what you've done with the turret, and start painting it.

Nice start,

before it's too late, you should remove the upper part of the lateral skirt (la partie supérieure des jupes en caoutchouc armés qui protege les reservoirs, si je me fais bien comprendre) on the lateral mudguards. there are not present on the T90.

beside that, it looks perfect !

Thanks Alex! What are you using for the turret etc., - not the ACE kit I presume. Do tankograd do an early turret? Look forward to seeing your progress.

Hi Steve

I was planning on basing the turret on a T-72B one I made a while back. The basic shape is the same with small detail changes and different fittings. Tankograd also do the B turret that could be used as a basis for this, but they are also planning T-90 turrets at some point so I may hold on for those.

Regards

Alex
