Lots of folks are super-excited to see the latest addition to Early War Flames of War - Rising Sun. One of the best things for lovers of painting and modeling is that we get to focus on some more tanks for the Soviets to build even more monstrous hordes! We got our hands on the new BT-5 box set and could not wait to get these guys done!

These things do look cool - must resist the urge to build EW Soviets! I think I can pawn these off on Hecht!
Conclusion: 3 of 4 Anti-Tank Dogs
These models are nice and there isn't a ton more to say about them. I had no major problems, so not a lot of controversy.
I really like the ease of assembly and the low part count. I also found that everything went together easily. There was very little flash on the resin or metal parts, so cleanup was a breeze - I actually went from unboxed to fully painted models in about 3 hours.
I would have liked to see magnets included in this set, especially since most folks using these will need a TON of them - adding 10 magnets to each box will increase the cost beyond the $52USD per box. Over $150USD to run a company of these (17 models)...a little steep.
Overall, a nice box set for folks wanting to run EW Soviet Fast Tankovy.
