Hi, these are pictures of my recently completed engine for the Trumpeter 1/16 T-34. I hope they are of use to anyone building this model. As you can see I have added a lot of scratch-built extras to the existing kit.

Thanks Darran!
Those pics will sure be handy in the future. Did you paint the engine according to Trumpeters instructions?

The rusted effect on the exhaust manifold looks a little too red as opposed to rusty, but that could be the picture. But I think the heat effect/discolouration on the rocker covers is fantastic and I would like to see exactly how it was acchieved, very realistic weathering.
