Kits from Belarus. PST (PromSnabTorg, JSC, Minsk) produces plastic model kits of military vehicles of the World War II and post-War eras. Some of the soft skins are license produced AER kits (noted below), but most are original molds.

PST has recently started a small line of vehicle accessories.

72001 IS-1 Early style IS hull, and IS-2 turret with the 85mm gun. Superb detail, but the fit of the hull and turret parts could be a little more smooth. Turret hatches are very thick, and will need considerable work if posed open.     Kevin Liang
72002 IS-2 mod. 1943 Early style IS-2 hull, with 122mm gun. Same comments as above.     Kevin Liang
72003 IS-2 mod. 1944 Late style IS-2 hull. Same comments as above.     Kevin Liang

72005 ISU-122 Early-style 122mm gun without the muzzle brake. Same comments as above.   Review Kevin Liang
72006 ISU-122S Late-style 122mm gun with muzzle brake. Same comments as above.     Kevin Liang
72007 ISU-152-1 Long-barrelled 152mm howitzer. Same comments as above.      
72008 KV-85 IS-1 turret on modified KV-1S hull. New hull and wheels are excellent. Same excellent tracks as KV-1 series. Fender detail not quite as nice as in ESCI's KV kit, but overall detail is very good. Includes both 85mm and 122mm guns. Preview Augusto Versiani  
72009 KV-122 Same kit as KV-85 Preview    
72010 BM-13N Katiusha AER Studebaker kit plus sprue of new parts for rocket launcher.      
72011 Zis-5BZ Fuel Truck

AER Zis-5 kit plus sprue of new parts for fuel tank.

The builder needs to ignore the instructions about the engine cover. (Part 12 in this diagram, labeled differently in every one of the kits.) The direction is wrong. This is correct.

The painting instructions are correct, by the way, about the direction of the part. At any rate, it is clear, by the number of erroneous builds featured online, that the instructions have tripped many people up.

72030 M-30 122mm gun with Zis-6 Truck

The builder needs to ignore the instructions about the engine cover. (Part 12 in this diagram, labeled differently in every one of the kits.) The direction is wrong. This is correct.

The painting instructions are correct, by the way, about the direction of the part. At any rate, it is clear, by the number of erroneous builds featured online, that the instructions have tripped many people up.

The kit share the same sprue for the D-1 and M-30.
The gun can be built into either depending on the choice of the builder.
It is not clear what the gun in the kit represents. The reader is highly encouraged to read up on the gun here.
With respect to the M-30, it represents the early version of the M-30, with the early riveted legs (see parts 15 and 16).
The problem, however, is that PST only made the rivets on top of the legs. There are no rivets on the side of the legs.
To be accurate, you either duplicate the rivets on the side or shave off the top to make it the welded, late version.
It also has the early sight, not the late sight, which has an extra dial. (Again, see above link. The part is 29 on the sprue. )
The big problem is this. Zvezda also has an early M-30. The features on the Zvezda look much better, despite the fact that it has much fewer parts.
T he builder can always make the D-1, which isn't available from any other manufacturer as far as I can tell. But there is a problem.
Most of the actual D-1 have the late sight. The only exception I have seen is possibly this museum piece.
I don't know how interchangeable the sights are in real-life, but the builder needs to be very, very careful.

72065 Ford G8TA with semi-trailer        
72066 S-125 "Neva" Air defence missile system mounted on T-55 chassis.      
72067 T-44M This is a multimedia kit (with plastic chassis and body complete with resin turret and metal barrel and small parts) and the quality is quite nice for this manufacturer. - Jolyon Ralph      
72068 T-54 m.1949 Essentially it's the old PST T-54 kit with a new resin turret (from Zebrano -ed.) for the T-54-2 variant (NOT the earlier T-54-1 which is the m.1946 version). None of the faults of PST T-54 kit are fixed. The turret looks OK but a little basic. Probably a better option is to get the Modeltrans T-54-2 turret and fit that to a Trumpeter T-54 hull (note that it's not that simple with the T-54-1 turret that Modeltrans sell, as the T-54-1 hull had various differences, including machine-gun pods on the fenders, so you'd need a new hull top as well as a turret, but that's another issue altogether.) - Jolyon Ralph      
72069 ZSU-61K PST kit with additional Zebrano parts      
72071 T-44 This kit is an amalgam of the PST T-54 kit with some additional parts from Zebrano. Inspection of the parts shows:
  1. Fenders are for a T-44M/T-54, not a T-44 (ribbed strenghening at the front). They are also too high up.
  2. The turret won't turn because the fuel drums will get in the way. Been there, done that!
  3. Wrong hatch on the commander's cupola on turret - same problem in T-44M kit (kit no. 72067). It should be the single-hatch type.
  4. Horrible T-54 PST "thin rim" wheels. Better replaced with Revell T-34/85 wheels.
  5. Drive wheel has 6 lightening holes (T-34 style). The actual T-44 had a drive wheel with five lightening holes.
  6. Handles on fuel drums are at an odd angle. It looks like they've been taken from a T-34 kit without any correcting.
  7. Stowage box on front port side looks a bit too chunky.
