You could probably just look at MiniArt's own promotional information to know exactly what makes it a Polish Production tank.

@CMOT- Darren,

Excellent review of this kit. You have a great writing style that makes it a pleasure to read through the entire articular and get a lot of information out of it without having to reread it again.

Very good photographs too. Thanks again for posting a very comprehensive review.

Pawel I understand you point on that score and I did indeed look at this information and then compared it to written information and I could not find what made this uniquely Polish as it seems that during its life all sorts of minute changes were made. With that said thank you for taking the time to reply.

Thank you for taking the time to reply Eddie, it is appreciated.

For variety, you can do one with sand skirts in Iraqi service during ODS. (Captured by the British.)


From Concord "Operation Desert Sabre".

Voyager makes a Chinese side skirt set for the Hobbyboss ZTZ 96, which could work with adapting the front and rear skirts.
