T-80B - final version

 I've been wanting to build a T-80B for a long time, having built the old Matchbox / Revell kit in the mid 1990s.The Modelcollect kit is a much better starting point!

The gunner's hatch needs off-setting at a slight angle.

The cupola is for an early version and needs up-armouring. It's also too flat for any version.
The kit basket is both too thick and only suited to the early version. I modified a T-80U part and thinned it down.

A resin copy of my improved kit turret. The basic shape is quite good, but a number of details are missing or can be improved.
