Soviet armor in 1/87 scale (part 1)

About 20 years ago I came across some 1/87 scale Soviet armor that I believe was actually made in the Soviet Union prior to its collapse. Never was able to determine a manufacturer, and there are no markings on the model. It was molded in a lime green color if memory serves. At the time Soviet armor models in smaller scales were limited to various T-34 kits, some KV kits by Esci and Fujimi, and the Su-85 by Fujimi. I was glad to find these, and painted them up. Track detail is lacking, and my painting skills aren't great, but serviceable kits all the same.

The 1/87 scale version (front) and the 1/72 scale version by Dragon.
