Wow, looking forward to those.
There aren't enough rainy days for me to attempt the awful Trumpeter effort I've got in the stash.

Who knows, Trumpeter/Hobby Boss seem's to be making masters of modern stuff at an outrageous rate presently. So the T-80/T-90 may not be so far. We can hope Smile

I'm not sure which variant of the Type 99 to buy, but I will pick up at least one kit and also the other PLA kits that HobbyBoss is putting out. I wish Trumpeter or HobbyBoss would retool their original line of T-54/T-55 kits. A lot of possibilities exist in those molds.
