I have a question regarding T-72 side-skirts. Are the side-skirts of the T-72BM with ERA affixed to them made of a different material to the plastic/rubber side-skirts fitted to he T-72B1 for example? I plan to build Modelcollect's Syrian T-72BM with ERA, and note that the side-skirts are moulded flat and feature different mounting attachments to the track-guards than a pair also included in the kit (but surplus parts) that feature slightly wavy sides and track-guard attachments consistent with those of a T-72M1 (they are the same in style as my recently completed Revell T-72B1). I also note that the two styles of side-skirt differ at the front where they meet different shaped hooded front sections of the track-guards. Aside from general interest, I want to know because I may model my T-72BM with damages skirts per several photos of Syrian vehicles, and knowing what they are made of would assist in getting the damage right. Thanks in advance for any help.
