The vehicle

“The finest tank in the world”

Field Marshal von Kleist [1]

The above picture is of the vehicle in the Muckleburgh collection. Built in 1944, apparently it still has the original paint and has been repaired just once since then, despite still being in running order. Looks like it leaks a bit though…

The kit

Dragon 1/35 kit (#6066) [4]. This looks to be a simple kit, less detailed than the later Dragon T34/85 (#6266). I have that kit also, so this current one will act as a test run for that. It seems strange that I have no models of the T-34/85 – this happens to be my favourite of all tanks – so this is long overdue.
