Trumpeter has released the cast turret version of the T-90 tank. Here is a look at how it builds up.

Great review, Russ, thank you

I'd like to build one, but I keep shying away because of those little PE disks.. I'd probably end up messing it up with superglue running everywhere

This is a good looking tank, but practically identical to the T-72B Model 1990 that they released very late last year and that I have just finished building.

For people who have just purchased or completed the T-72 there is very little new

I will be waiting for the welded turret T-90

Darren, thanks for getting this up and running.

Hisham and Steven, thanks for the comments. The disks actually went fairly quickly and weren't as bad as I thought, aside from trying to see and cut the attachment points cleanly. Just make sure the right side is up. For those who want even more etch, I saw this the other day: http://www.hobbyeasy.com/en/data/80klypqczbjxmjepeu5o.html
I have not heard of them before, but they offer etch for most every modern Russian tank.

Trumpeter's T-90A should be out very soon. I read an in box this morning at Cybermodeler. It wouldn't surprise me to see the T-90S Bishma following in the near future, as India operates more T-90s then everyone else combined. Maybe someone will even offer the Nakidka camouflage in resin. Then you wouldn't have to worry to much about the etch parts. There is really a lot of variety to be found with the T-90. Should be fun.
