DNEPROMODEL - anyone ever bought from them ?

Got any static model tanks? If so post them here.

As a fan of ugly Russian armour, I've recently found the 1/16th resin kits of Hungarian armour made by these guys, but there's surprisingly little about them on the web.

Has anyone ever bought one of their kits ?

Thanks for posting the link.

They're on Ebay as 777model777, though there's a pretty hefty price increase - to cover Ebay's selling fees I presume.

You are missing something,
Click on the name of the site and a sidebar appears which has many different scales including 1/16.

Vandra seem to specialise in conversions of existing RC hulls, where as these guys appear to do complete static kits.

I ordered their 1/16 Turan II on October 09. After 2 inquiries and excuses indicating the mold needed updates, a parcel shipped out on November 29 from the Ukraine, not Hungary. Still in transit with a provided tracking number indicating it left Ukraine on December 6.Has not reached Canada yet so I assume it is going surface mail... Hopeful it is going to make it. Will advise.

Hi, good news, the 1/16 scale Turan II has arrived, and coming with a personalised Christmas wish card and 10% discount on following order. Ordered directly from their website, it is much cheaper than their store on eBay.

At first sight, I am very happy. Parts are well casted and I believe can be converted to RC. All resin, there is no PE or metal.

Nicely boxed

There are a lot of parts, most molded in dark grey, all sealed in bags. The larger ones are separately packed and numbered with stickers.

The turret is well made.

The upper hull parts. Its made of resin that seems as strong as plastic.

Sprocket and some track links. The tracks are finely molded but static.

They must have partnered with Friulmodel because they have a set of metal tracks available for the Turan II, and cheap at 30EU for the set.

Many thanks for the update and photos Louis. It does look like an interesting kit, especially with the addition of the Fruilmodel tracks :-)

Guess I now know what I'm getting myself for a late Christmas present.
