Thanks for posting the pics, Jamal.

It looks pretty nice. I wonder how the experts will compare it to MENG's kit?

Judging from the pricing of recent releases by both companies I would expect the Trumpeter kit to be in the region of 20-30% cheaper than the Meng kit, in the UK atleast

In the HK stores, the newer Trumpeter T-64 series are close to MENG's T-90 price. I'm hoping Trumpeter's T-90 doesn't end up being more expensive than MENG's!

Hi Everyone;

Looks Good too Me !!!! I wish there were more Detailed Pictures on a different colored back ground,
From the prices that are on e-bay for both the T-80 & 90 it should be in line with the rest, now the range is from the 60$ Dollar range to the 40$ range on the T-80.
The T-90 is in the Mid, 30s price range, which is a great deal. Now you still have too pay shipping
CHEERS; MIKE.

it seems many unnecessary PE and some parts that would had look finer in PE are solid plastic moulded.
For example, some belts and straps like those in the boxes

I have made many Trumpeter and Hobby boss kits and many of them lacked of this fault. I remember the Panhard EBR 10 which included some very poor rubber moulded wheels when the vehicle ones are metal.

What may seem unnecesary for you might be better for Trumpeter to engineer the kit keeping it within a not too complex one for all kind of modellers, we don't know...
And if anyone wants to super detail or improve the basic kit, there always be Voyager, ET Models and other AM companies, not to mention Miniarm, that also have to feed their families...
I agree about the annoying rubber wheels of the EBR kit, but that has nothing to do with this release, which I'm really happy with.

Hi Luty;
Since I don't have access too the Real Thing, and cant comment on the Barrel as for it not being correct.
Tell us whats wrong with it, you live there and have access too the real vehicle. From what I can tell it looks fine too me. And if its not correct im sure the AM Boys will Correct it !

CHEERS; MIKE.

Wow looks pretty tasty!

This is causing a ton of pain though, the amount of money i've forked out over the past couple of years on Miniarm resin......

You are really joker Mike, yes.

That's a very basic CAD drawing shown back on 2011, did you see any recent announcement of a tentative release date?
I was searching for any reference but found nothing

By the way, why hijacking a tread of a Trumpeter's future reléase -whenever it might be- with a reference to other manufacturer?
It's becoming a standard use todays, it seems...
Open a new tread if you find it useful

Meng should be the most accurate one IMHO, I just mentioned Meng is planning on T-90 cast, I feel little bit disappointed when trumpeter goes for T-62-->T-64----->T-80&T-90 instead of giving us a T-72.....and here comes my little revenge, For T-90 kit I'll buy Meng's
