is one more prototype tank from Zebrano. In fact, only 3 units were
Concerning this kit from Zebrano we can be very short. Inside the
box you'll find a simple mix of two classic UM kits: UM-301 “BT-5”
(minus the turret) with photo etched parts and UM-316 “T-26
Twin Turret” (containing only the turrets and part of upper
hull). These kits are well known, so nothing more about them……
BUT!!! The BT-4 was developed from the BT-2, not the BT-5! The main
and obvious difference between these two types lies in the wheels.
Conclusion: this simple mix by Zebrano is incorrect.
For modelers who would like to have a correct BT-4, it's a good idea
to make 2 models from 2 two standard UM kits following this modelers
(UM-316 turrets) + (UM-302 body) = BT-4
(UM-302 turret) + (UM-316 body) = T-26 , same as UM-361 kit.
