T-90A is coming!

After two years of well preparation, MENG 1/35 Russian T-90A Main Battle Tank (kit No. TS-006) will be available soon.We hereby express our sincere thanks to Mr. Alexey Khlopotov(АлексейХлопотов), our project advisor, for providing us strong support and help during the development of TS-006.Alexey Khlopotov(АлексейХлопотов) is an experienced research specialist in Russian tanks.He knows the design and development of Soviet/Russian tanksvery well and has rich research experience in its structure. He is a genuine expert on T-72 and T-90 with nearly twenty years of study. Besides, he has engaged in book publishing and often publishesarticles about Russian tank history in various magazines. He has a blog site named “Gur Khan attacks”.

We have devoted tremendous energy and much time into the kit of TS-006. The kit consists of 1303 parts on 26 plastic sprues (excluding PE frets, cable and poly caps), 10 PE parts on 3 frets (one of the PE frets carries road wheel paint mask which will offer great convenience to modelers),moreover, in order to make the model more realistic and interesting, we provide a TPE mantlet rain cover and two1/35 scale crew helmets.

The kit of TS-006 reproduces all the external features and details of T-90A. The size is correct and accurate.TheV-92S2 engine can be perfectly represented with open engine deck. Precise movable suspension system perfectly models the real thing, Cement-free workable double-pin tracks have optional rubber pads,With regard to painting options, the kit provides decals for Victory Day Parade (2008-2012) in Russia and some universal unit numbers and markings which can satisfy most modelers’ needs.

With regards to special decals (Volgograd and Rostov-on-Don Parade),you can get the free decal sheets when you have the following magazines: ArmourModelling, Hobbyworld, Model Military International andSuper Model. These two special options are totally different from Moscow Victory Day Parade options. Besides, the special decal sheets include two setsof special unit markings.

In order to provide modelers with reference and detail material that they can refer to during building this kit,we have compiled the book T-90/T-90A Photo Album which consists of series of photographs and text. Modelers can have a clear understanding about the operation environment of this tank while they verify the details according to the photographs during building.The T-90/T-90A Photo Album (Simplified Chinese Edition) will be published by China Machine Press in June 2013 and the Japanese Edition will be published by HOBBYJAPAN in June 2013.Intense preparation forother language editions is in progress.

It will be enjoyable experience of building this kit!
