After a good deal of starting doubts, we did finally take a decision on what model bringing to life next in this scale. In the end, it will be no other than the T-26 tank models A & B --already released at 1:72nd quite recently. In hard plastic, too.
These ubiquitous tanks will be sold by the platoon box, containing each box 5 tank sprues, besides of a decals sheet with basic Russian, Fininish, Turkish, Spanish Republican and Spanish Nationalist markings --5 markings sets for each nationality! The tank basic design remains the same as its 1:72nd counterpart --except for the tank commander, that has been entirely re-tooled.
Here you can watch a few mould captions, attesting us to be working at a good pace:
We expect mould to be finished up by the end of month, so that the first testing sprues can be shot before August holidays. In the meanwhile, decals are being printed too, and boxes are ready. If all the rest keeps going as expected, Minairons' 1:100th T-26 tank will be available for pre-order since mid-August. Ultimate release, by the first week of September.
