Still doing stuff on this, I will do a Diorama of it soon.
But for now will keep after it.That and the T-34/85 coming in Friday all over that one.

I know hard to tell but there are real small changes.

Very nice work as always Jeff and it was interesting to read the input by the membership on details. I hope you will send along a feature in due course.



Thanks Darren

Feature sent on.
Read the note.

Well about done the rest will be in the feature.

Been along time I took that much time adding a little detail, will take awhile to get back into the groove, been a long time, and when I did well, 1/6 scale takes a jar of paint for chipping and 4 to 5 jars of Tamiya paint to paint one, so will be awhile to get back in the groove.
I would post what my next build will be, but my friend from the UK sneaks in , and will know what I am building , and I do not want him to know Top Secret. :-)


Thanks all.

Well should be one more update after this and call it done.

So on with that, here we go.

Any white spots is dust, I need to clean the room.

My first attempt in weathering a 1/35 scale in over 10 years.

I really want to put it in a setting of a small building , off a road ,down the road some time though.

Cheers

Well, the drawings in Mythical weapon are for the better part not all that good/accurate and what you've posted is a pretty good example of that.
Again, find a period photo and I'd be forced to change my mind (it would still be an extraordinarily rare beast). But I've collected quite a few photos (stopped counting a few years ago but it's well over a thousand) and have quite a fair few books on the tank, it's kind of my thing, and I have yet to see one so fitted in war time photos.
Heck, not even the earlier batches of the -85 had them.

Anyway, it's your model and you can build it however you're happy with. But when it comes to the T-34 I'm kind of an accuracy Nazi.



Between me and you I am leaving it,called at the factory.

Do you have that book?

T-34 Mythical Weapon.

Pretty good.

A little more.







And that is not a white spot just the fluid was wet.

And all refitted and used post war. You are just not going to find a photo of a wartime -76 with those extra tracks. I know, I've tried.



Found it page 63 of The T -34 Mythical Weapon Factory 183 1943 1944.

Tracks just like they said. Right on the front, as a PDF file will see if I can post it here.

My book is in PDF form.

Here it is.

Now you've done it. I can think of at least two dudes who will not rest until they can find evidence to the contrary.



And I am one of them.

Could look at my Library of Books, but to dang lazy now.

T -34 Mythical weapon, and 6 more.

Thanks for the replies.

And that saw has to go.



Here is one. Granted a Type 85, but they always have them in all kits.





Found 3 more.





This one has the Boss's to mount the tracks.



Well a little more, I might redo that saw not satisfied with it, easy fix to take it off and redo it.

Coming along nicely but one thing you may want to look at: No T-34-76 would have the spare track links on the glacis plate during WWII.
Those links were a common post war upgrade but not during the war.

A little more getting there.
Got set of Mig's set of fuel and oil stuff coming so might have to wait until next week or so to finish this. Dang I do like the look of the T-34, maybe I need to do a T-34 type 85 , have a few in the stash. That and the Panzer III.

Thank you Tim,camera seems to do what it wants to do, older Cannon , I have a newer one but it's pics are like 5 megs a pic, still have not been able to find out how to set them lower it takes better pics, actually my older even, HP took the best pics up close , paid a bunch when it first came out in 2002. Still works and all but I don't use it any more, older 4 battery deal on it, and well on the lights, well this room used to be my R/C aircraft room, and I was going to do a Model Railroad, both gone now, but I put up 6, 4 foot florescent lights, on the ceiling, so about all I can do. And thanks for the compliment, still more to go, more I watch Mig the more one wants to do. LOL

Im admiring your very precise construction Jeff, looking really good as a WIP particularly the tracks. Im confused by how many shades of green are in these photos though & was wondering whether the blue background was throwing your camera off balance? The images with neutral background look more reliable although in some of those I think youre moving your light-source around (which alters the intensity) so its difficult to get a sense of colour-progress. Id suggest settling on conditions your camera likes the best (i.e. it faithfully reproduces colours) and then stick with it.

Enjoying this build a lot (& btw your actual photography is excellent!), keep up the great work
