In a bid to produce models based upon every conceivable version, variant and livery of the Russian-built T-72 and T-90 tanks, ModelCollect has announced three more examples of these ignominious vehicles. As far as the T-72 goes, they have announced a Syrian T-72BM Main Battle Tank with Kontakt-1 ERA which was deployed to Aleppo, Syria, in 2016 (AS72054). The T-90 gets two new flavors as well: the first is a Russian T-90MS Main Battle Tank – Nizhny Tagil Arms Expo, Russia, 2012 (AS72056) while the latter is a Russian T-90MS Main Battle Tank – Weapons Show, Desert Camouflage, 2014 (AS72060). This is now the 15th look at the T-72 from the eyes of ModelCollect, which means they have certainly gotten their money’s worth out of the tooling.
Early this morning, Waltersons, the new owners of the Forces of Valor brand, revealed details and first shot product images of their initial radio controlled 1:16 scale tank. Their first foray is a Russian T-72 main battle tank, which will come in two editions: the Original (shown here) and an upgraded version called their Enthusiast Edition.
According to Facebook, the Original version is slated for a 1st Quarter 2017 release while the Enthusiast version is expected one quarter later. Details concerning its feature list and pricing can be found on our web site.
