That would be the Bronco link. I think this is the one you meant:

Hi

Rather than using this site to flog yours, why don't you post the info here?

The full AVGP series

Cougar, Grizzly, Husky.
The husky is recovery vehicle by the way. Not an improved anything.
Everyone thought we were crazy in those wheeled things in the 1980s, now, not so much.

I'd like that also...but

December 7 2010, 5:40 PM 

The only thing that first T-80 shared with the T-64 was on of the later model turrets it had...otherwise it was completely different.

I wouldn't get too excited Mike...

December 7 2010, 1:50 PM 

as the pics posted over on Armorama of the master show a mucked up pedegree to say the least! The master was made of a Skif lower hull and Miniarm turret to name a couple of real problems. Granted, it might save you a few dollars in purchase but to do so by buying another knock off?! Whats the point in that if you already have those items? I see no improvement there as I am making the master for a T-64 lower hull and CAN say that NO ONE has done it correctly IN ANY WAY. I am also sure that Trumpeter will not either as the source material (Skif) sure didn't to begin with. Take a good look at the CDs I sent you in the T-64 file named "Range wreck" and you will start to see what I am talking about. If the lower hull was covered up by suspension I wouldn't be so put off but, with small roadwheels -it isn't.
Regards,
Chris the cabbie

Mockup....

December 7 2010, 5:44 PM 

Chris,

Don't throw out the baby with the bath water....I wouldn't discount the T-64 till we see real test shots of it. They do a decent job of Russian armor, well better then anyone else on the market!

The T-62 is lacking small details like welds on it, but otherwise is a very good base to work without any super major problems with it, unlike the Tamiya kit.

The BMP-3 is nice, but they goofed on the drive sprockets...its short a drive tooth from what I understand, but looks worlds better then the Skif one.

I'd much rather have a good starting point then deal with the SKIF T-64 ever again, I nearly gave up building armor after building that kit!
