The BMW M3 E30 was built in 1991 to compete in the under 2.0 liter class of the German touring car championship. They started with a BMW 318i, modified the body and did heavy work to the 2 liter engine to get just over 300hp. The car ran in the Class B. The car was fast and easily took over some of the bigger cars in Class A. The car went on to compete in the world touring car championship, the British touring car championship and the Japanese touring car championship.

Henry Ford’s Model T revolutionized America. It’s low price and simple mechanics made it affordable and practical for ordinary people to own a car. The flexibility of the Model T’s platform also spawned a host of other applications that allowed businesses and municipalities to make the switch from horse-drawn vehicles as well.

This kit shows a prime example of that flexibility. While the Model T fire truck may not have been capable of supplying all equipment needed to fight a major fire, it did provide a means of getting some basic firefighting equipment to the scene much more quickly, buying critical minutes in emergency situations.

ICM has been releasing a host of Model T subjects in both 1/24 and 1/35 scale in recent years. Again, the Model T’s basic platform allows them to spawn multiple kits off of a core set of tooling, and the result is a bonanza for the hobby.

OKB Grigorov specializes in resin, photoetch and turned metal barrel conversions for armor. One of their latest releases is metal barrel for the KV-2/3/4/5

This aftermarket set includes a barrel is made of turned metal with a hollow end. It will be perfect to enhance the looks of your model as the gun barrel tends to be a focal point of most armor models.

This set is well done and will require no cleaning of the parts for assembly. It is meant to be a “drop-in” replacement, without having to modify parts of the original kit.

Highly recommended.

I would like to thank OKB Grigorov and IPMS/USA for the review sample.

OKB Grigorov specializes in resin, photoetch and turned metal barrel conversions for armor. One of their latest releases is the Turret for Pz.V Panther Panzerbeobachthungswagen/

This aftermarket set includes parts in grey resin, green resin, clear resin and photoetch. The gun barrel is casted in resin for this set. As you can see from the pictures, the casting of the parts is pretty good, without any bubbles in the resin, although with some small flash in some areas.

Overall this set is well done and will require minimum cleaning of the parts for assembly.

Highly recommended, mainly for those modelers looking for unusual subjects or conversion projects.
