"I never would have guessed which Western tank was the most popular with the Reds and why the Russians preferred some designs over their own T-34. As a modeler I have been inspired to to build some Lend-Lease subjects, and to create some dioramas. The photographic and illustration support is exceptional, and the tables help simplify data. -- Armorama" - KitMaker Network
