The ship surrendered to the British at Copenhagen in May 1945, and was handed over to the Americans. In July 1946, she survived two nuclear tests in Bikini Atoll.

I hope Trumpeter actually releases the T-62 in September. IIRC, they have been promising to release this model for a couple of years it seems. I'm excited about this kit and hopefully somebody will do a BDD conversion for this kit.

Is it me or!

Is it me or are the retail prices on Trumpy kits on the rise? Their retail prices on the SdKfz. 7 series is higher than that of the Dragon kit, and to be honest trumpy needs to get on the ball! some sloppy tooling lately.
However I have been waiting on a new T-62 for well over 20 years, I don't care how bad the tooling of the new kit is, it has to be better than the old Tamiya beast!
Thanks for the update.
