QuickLook



I have to admit that I don't really know much about the ASU-57, but when I did receive the kit I was impressed.

What a sleek little vehicle.

What I also liked was the fact that it was used by Airborne units.

Inside the box are five small sprues containing a myriad of parts including separate track links.

The instructions are very basic and parts placement will need a lot of care.

What is impressive is the level of detail, extensive interior, and gun detail.

The decal sheet in this set is very small with markings for one vehicle only - USSR Airborne 1961.

Maquette's 1/35 scale ASU-57 looks to be a nice model, and certainly an interesting subject. I would recommend this kit to Soviet armour modellers and to anyone else who wants to do something different.

Thanks to Squadron.com for the review sample.
