Referring to welding track to the grab handles.


Quoted Text

Most likely wire is used. It is also possible, but I do not know if this is what they did, that the tracks are welded to the grab handles.



The grab handles I have seen are hollow bent tubing. I dought anyone would weld to it. If one side of the grab handle is broken loose, it is not hard to bend it or twist it up, down or out.

Mike,
maybe thinking about the book by Pat Stansell published by Genadier Press ?

It really depends on what you need. If you want a good, brief, history lesson, the New Vanguard book from Osprey is pretty good.

If you want a good reference for model building detail missing in the kit, you want something different.




I am looking for a more detailed reference.



The old (ancient) Tamiya photo series book on the T62 is a pretty good reference and there was another.. I'll have to look in the library at home tonight.

I have a trumpeter t62 mod 1972 and the drive sprockets are said to be on sprue "K"hhowever I don't have that sprue but I have located drive sprockets on the two "A" sprues minus the round disk with holes in it that goes in the middle of each sprocket, has trumpeter altered the spruce count and not the instructions or am I missing a sprue?

I've looked around the internet for some time but I have not come across a 1/35 scale 100mm U-8TS gun. Is there such an aftermarket item?

I'm looking at the Concord book by Zaloga. It's a bit pricey, but not too bad and seems to offer an in depth photo primer.

For detailed references, online is by far your best resource. There may be some Russian language books you can acquire, but off the top of my head, that is all I can think of.

With the resources posted, here I may not need one. However, I am soon to start my T62 mod 62 build and would like to know of any recommended reading. I am looking at T-62 Main Battle Tank 1965-2005 (New Vanguard). Will this one be helpful or is there better material out there?

KMT-5 mineroller from the OLD Trumpeter T-55 or T-72 kit with them. MiG does a KMT-7 mineroller in resin.

Detailing the inside of the T-62 hatches...probably have to do it yourself from scratch or cobbling pieces from other places. No replacement piece I know of. Will bring it up to SP Designs though...

I'm back at my 62 mod 62. Is there any media for detailing the inside of the hatches available?



I'm also searching for a kmt-5 mine roller.

Ah, sorry. Must have missed most of the original post. Since the axis of the sprocket is fixed by the need for the final drive to be in line with the axle (track tension is adjusted at the idler with a much chunkier fitting than that bolt), that must be the oil filler for the final drive.

Isn't it the lower part of the unditching log bracket? Or am I looking at the wrong thing?



Robert,
I think so yes. The unditching beam has two parts to the bracket, under that on the sprocket bulge, about even with the top of the tow hook, but under the (missing ) spring clip.

I have not seen the trumpeter T-62 m60 kit yet, do not know about the turret (though I suspect it is the same turret as in the m62 and m67 kits).

Does anyone know the purpose of the fitting there on the left side, under the log brackets? The hex bolt there on the sprocket bulge, is it a filler port for oil or is it a tensioner for the sprocket?
I have seen excerpts from the maintenance manual, but cant make heads or tails of the Cyrillic.

SP Designs kit 234 (T-62 m67)has a one piece turret with the turret ring under. It does improve the kit, pieces are pressure cast.

I have not seen the trumpeter T-62 m60 kit yet, do not know about the turret (though I suspect it is the same turret as in the m62 and m67 kits).

A few questions on the SP Designs T-62 1967 turret.How is it? Does it also include the turret ring? thanks.I am interested in getting one as it looks more accurate than the Trumpeter 1962 turret.Did they also put that turret in their T-62 1960 kit? Thanks.

Yes. The T-62 m62/75 is a updated m62 with the added LRF. There are some other changes, but they are interior.
