Xact Scale Models of Hong Kong appointed Pacific Coast Models Inc. of Santa Rosa, Calif., as an importer and distributor for Xact Scale’s new line of 1:35 armor kits in the U.S. and Canada.

Pacific Coast Models announced the news April 2 in a press release.

Xact Scale Models is a new company owned by a fellow modeler, who prefers to remain anonymous, according to Ken Lawrence of Pacific Coast Models.

The company’s first new kit is a 1:35 Russian T-80U Main Battle Tank (No. XS 35001, MSRP $69.99). It was the main heavy tank in the Russian arsenal in the 1980s and 1990s. It remains in service with the Russian tank force with the latest upgrades. Several thousand have been placed in storage for use if necessary. It has been sold to countries all over the world including Belarus, Cyprus, Kazakhstan, Algeria, Pakistan, South Korea and the Ukraine. It is still produced in the Ukraine.
