1:72 Scale  – Object 279 Experimental Heavy Tank - Soviet Army, 1959 - Length: 6.5" (from back to tip of gun),  Width: 2.25”

This tank model is made of a combination of metal and plastic parts. The tracks are fitted, however they do not move. The coloring and markings are accurate and realistic. There are some color variations at different areas of the model as to denote wear and tear.

The turret can rotate and the gun can elevate.

The maker of the model really did a good job with the model, the panel lines and details are very clear and crisp. These models have different details engraved such as doors, hatches, panels, lights, ports, antennas, machine guns, ropes, shovels, etc; all of these done with high accuracy and proportion. When they are painted in different color, say for example, shovels and ropes, they are indeed painted accurately. The weathering effect that these tanks have, such as smoke and oil staining makes them look very realistic. Depending on the particular type of tank, some will have machine guns and antennas that look very accurate

These models are not toys, they will not last long if played with. The tracks don't move and the turrets and their main guns and machine guns can be quite fragile because of their size.

The Obiekt 279, or Object 279, (Объект 279) was a Soviet experimental heavy tank developed at the end of 1959.

This special purpose tank was intended to fight on cross country terrain, inaccessible to conventional tanks, acting as a heavy breakthrough tank. It was planned as a tank of the Supreme Command Reserve.
