FineScale has a couple of books on modeling tanks that you might be interested in. Take a look here for a list of them. Smile [:)]

The only Russian tank I've built was a Petner Panzer's T-62. It was designed for wargaming, and it was at 1:87 scale, so it wasn't obnoxiously detailed.

Tamiya T-62A
Posted by Rob Gronovius on Thursday, December 5, 2002 8:59 AM
I picked up one of these old kits before I left home. Does anyone know if any of the multitude of Trumpeter PLA tanks (T-59, T-69, T-79, etc.) can be used to spruce up this kit? I'm talking tracks, road wheels, sprockets, turret/hull details, fuel cells, etc.

I'm hoping one of these Trumpeter tanks share a common chassis, running gear, tracks with the T-62A. The Tamiya kit is very old and from the motorization era so a lot of the details are simplified and heavy-handed.
