Hello,

I have finally finished one of my longest running models. I got this kit sometime in 2007. I was crazy about having this particular version of the T-34 when it came out, but now I don't remember why. It is one of the 1941 versions, with the small turret, single hatch, and 76 mm gun. I built a generic winter 1941/1942 machine which probably served in the Leningrad area.

Its been so long since I built the model (I finished it years ago, and just painted it recently), that I don't recall much of the build. At its core it is the Dragon T-34. Lots of great details, lots of parts, TONS of options. Metal gun barrel, a good deal of PE, clear headlight lens.

To those wondering, the rectangular boxes on the hull sides were wooden spare fuel tanks. The round drum tanks common to most Soviet tanks were not fitted to the T-34s from this particular factory.

Paints are Tamiya white over MM Acryl Russian Green, various Vallejo browns on the tracks and details. Weathering done with three or four shades of brown washes, and two shades of pigments.

I'm not 100% happy with the result, but I'm 100% thrilled to finally have this thing done, 10 years after purchase. One less large box in the stash!

Well, I would be 100% happy with it, Ralph. A long time in the making maybe but that is a really great looking T-34!

Da, now give me the potatoes I was promised.

Who is that blonde buffoon hiding in the background? :evil:

It may have taken 10 years, but it was so worth it. That is an awesome finish!

Superb build. Great weathering and I really like the colour chosen. It feels really good to get something that has been sitting a while, done.

That is one thoroughly used and mean looking T-34. Great worn effects.
