A quick look at the Trumpeter T-90 Cast Turret.
first impressions are very good, parts are cleanly molded and a comparison of critical dimensions with the excellent Meng kit reveal a very favorable similarity. While I have not yet started construction I am confident that it will build up well, construction is less complicated than the Meng kit and of course no engine is provided, tracks are non workable individual links but seem reasonably well detailed, suspension is also non workable, but can be positioned to suit dioramas as needed. cast detail on the turret is not as well done as I would have liked and the prominent weld seams over the forward composite armor cavities are not well represented but these details can be improved upon by the modeler himself / herself  More to come soon

Actually Jenny there is not a lot to choose from price wise, ex Hong Kong the cheapest is the Zvezda kit at around A$30, but it has innumerable dimensional errors, Trumpeter comes in next at around A$38 and then Meng tops the list at A$45. the bonus here is that the Trumpeter kit represents an early T-90 with the cast turret, whereas the Meng kit (and the Zvezda offering) are the later T-90A with the welded (Vladimir) turret. So if you want an early T-90 the Trumpeter kit is the only game in town at this point... and you can easily fit a set of RMSh (РМШ "Резинометаллический шарнир") tracks (as fitted to T-72 and updated T-55 / 62) which will give you the initial version of the T-90 (sometimes erroneously referred to as the "T-72BM" in spite of the fact that this nomenclature never technically existed in Russian military documentation)Very Happy Very Happy
