Amusing Hobby are well known for making out of the ordinary subjects – now this one would seem to be right in that category – the secret Soviet cold war heavy tank, the Object 279….Apart from the fact that all of a sudden there are two other kits of the same vehicle just announced!
Amusing hobby New Release 2013
1/35th scale Soviet Heavy Tank - Object 279
It seems that this tank has a few features that show up in the CAD images that we have been given – Photo Etched details for the finer details of the hull and the grilles that cover the exhaust and engine ports, clasps and latches
Shown as well is the independent suspension that would give the FOUR sets of tracks to travel separate from each other..
The large 130mm barrel with be moulded with open slits on the muzzle break
The great thing about Amusing hobby is that they always include a little jig to make the tank track – and of course it was never more important than with this kit!
