Hey guys, quick question: How accurate is the bottom of the hull on the Tamiya T-72 kit? More directly, the front 1/3 of the hull bottom. I have looked and looked on as many "walkarounds" as I can find, but they all tend to show the "outer details" of the tank, and not the bottom of the hull. (No light to take pictures I guess :^) )

Main reason for asking is I'm trying to accurize my 1/16th scale T-72 kit that I'm working on.

Thanks for any help you may be able to offer.

It could be a good idea to ask that question on a forum of Russian modelers, such as scalemodels.ru. With some luck you may be able to find somebody, who served on T-72 as well. But it will be easier for them to answer if you take a photo of your bottom hull.
