1/144 PLA Armored Fighting Vehicle Unit Set I (Plastic model)

 



1/144 PLA Armored Fighting Vehicle Unit Set I (Plastic model)

The price seems expensive (maybe its currency conversions?) for 6x items?
The previous Sphyrna Models released in other scales (typically 1/700) have been in plastic, so its looks like that could be the case here?
Given the naming of this set Sphyrna Model maybe planning further 1/144 releases in this series?

  •  two 1.5-ton versatile light vehicles,
