Ostmodels 1/72 SMK Russian Heavy tank **review** (by HenkofHolland & Darren Couch)

Hello dear modeller,

Today we met a Russian prototype tank.SMK Russian Heavy Tank.

SMK (named after Sergei Mironovich Kirov - the assassinated party official) was an armored vehicle prototype developed by the Soviet Union prior to the WWII . The SMK was mistakenly known to German intelligence as the T-35C. Only one was built and after a poor showing against other designs and brief use in the war with Finland, the project was dropped.
