Where are Zvezda and ICM?
Posted by Don Stauffer on Friday, November 10, 2017 8:41 AM

Are these Russian firms, or Ukrainian, or other eastern European?

Zvezda are Russian. I don’t know about ICM though. Ukrainian is my guess.

ICM is Ukrainian. I just bought their 1914 Model T fire truck and while I haven't started it yet, it looks pretty good.

I've got an old Zvezda T-60 WW2 light tank kit from the Cold War days. The box art top says for sale only in the Soviet Union.

In ships, they rebox a lot of old Heller stuff, which is generally a good thing.

I remember that Aaron built their new 787 and liked it a lot.

Have an ICM Tiger II. Very clean molding, and the box would survive a small tactical nuke.  Looks like fairly nice detail on parts.

Instructions pretty simplified pictographs, and color callouts for Revell and Tamiya paints.

I hear their ships are a hit and miss.  The SMS Konig kit from ICM was the worse kit I have ever worked on.  Really poor fitting parts.  I hear their new release/tool ships are really nice, but after the Konig I am not ready to purchase another.  Not aleast until the nightmares stop.

To clarify, I meant to say Zvezda. As for ICM, no experience.

Zvezda also reboxes kits from Italeri's armor line, some of which are even the old Peerless Max kits like the White Scout Car. They also rebox the old Dragon Soviet armor kits and some of the WW2 German armor kits.
