How are 1/72 Deagostini tanks?

Post by vaindioux » Sat Mar 23, 2019 9:44 am

Hi

I am not a picky collector and doesn't have only Dragon or hobby master in my collection. I have quite a few easy model or Altaya like tanks which please me. But I don't like Eaglemoss, that's really too crappy looking.
DeAgostini has quite a few tanks not made by other brands.
Just wondering what you guys think.

I think they're pretty much the same as Altaya and IXO. Diecast metal, nicer than Eaglemoss.

Easy Model have nicer paint and finishes overall.

When you get down to small sizes like 1/72 in planes, clunky metal molding and seams tend to be more distracting and much less crisp than plastic. I had quite a few Easy Model 1/72 planes and most were quite nice and not so expensive.
