Panda has released the newest addition to the PLA''s tank force; the ZTZ-99A. This state of the art kit is the first to represent what is essentially a new tank on the components of the ZTZ-99 series including a new hull and turret design.

Matt, entertaining build review, especially the bit about managing to get the tiny handle in your eye... a hundred to one shot, reminds me of our cat who grabbed a chip (fry) off my plate then threw it so that it hit my wife in the face.

Interesting to read about familiar sounding frustrations of kit building, some related to building for a review, and some of which are about the ways in which certain parts of kits are designed. The gun barrel looks like it might make more sense if it was moulded in cylindrical sections, for example.
