Amusing Hobby 1/35 scale Object 279 Soviet heavy tank

By John Plzak
Published: January 6, 2014

The Amusing Hobby 1/35 scale Object 279 Soviet heavy tank plastic kit comprises more than 1,500 parts (most for the running gear), perhaps based on the belief that if two parts is good, four or six is better. Two small photoetched-metal sheets provide details for the hull and turret along with straps for the external fuel tanks. Individual-link plastic tracks are joined with pins inserted in both sides, similar to Modelkasten tracks. Neither decals (none are needed) nor figures are included. The kit provides two sets of cable ends, but no cable.
