T-34/76 (model 1943) build – Part 2:Assembly

Leave a comment

This kit is a bit basic in some areas – the plastic is soft and spongy and I had to ream out all the road wheels to get them to fit on the running gear. But, overall, nothing drastic and I like some aspects of it a lot – the instruction booklet is better than most, with well researched marking options. Anyway, in my part of the world it comes for about a third of the price of a Dragon T-34 and that is before you consider the included figures, which was one of the reasons for me getting it.

To improve it further I added much of the Eduard photoetch set – the storage boxes were soldered tight for extra rigidity.
