Glad you like it.
It's a real nice kit, just needs a little correction.
I should have the fighting compartment comming soon.
I'm trying to transfer all of my build photos to photobucket. If this worka I'll be able to post more pics.

Have some more finished.
Just 1 pic right now.

Got the wheels and track on.
The pic is showing the fitting of the upper hull to the lower.
The aluminum foil is to keep the upper hull from bonding to the lower while joining the front and rear sections together.
I am building this kit so the upper and lower can be separated for viewing.
Now i'll have to start adding the small fittings.
Happy Modeling

Here are some more




If you want the commanders hatch operable, you will have to drill and pin it with fine wire. The kit would have you glue it in one position, It's not hard to do.

I'll soon be done here

Above is the upper engine hatch, it to has been drilled and pined to make it operable.

Above here is the rear access hatch to the transmission, not much is visable through it. I added small studs where the bolts would be.
( OF NOTE THE WHOLE UPPER HULL IS NOW ONE PIECE AND CAN BE LIFTED OFF FOR VIEWING THE INTERIOR.)
A small strip of plastic needs to be glued along the bottom egge of the upper rear armor plate, as there is a gap there.

These will be the final two pictures on this build.



These two pictures were taken through the hatch.
I hope that you all enjoy these,eventually I'll have to repost them from One Drive like I have fore other builds, they will be a lot smaller then.

This will be the final post on this build, NO PICTURES,just a list of the mistakes that I have found with this kit to help any who wish to build it.
Donald

#1 The left munitions back suport bar numbered SE71 is really SE11
#2 The left side munitions clamp suport numbered sE70 is really SE71
#3 The munitions clamps SD58 & SG9 are not interchangeable so make sure you get the right one in the right place. The SD58 are slightly larger to fit lower on the shells.
#4 The track count on the instructions is wrong, it calls for 34 of both types. You will need at least 36 of each per side. You might getaway with 35, but that would put the idler closer to the road wheels.
#5 Don't use the two SD23 parts as they were added to the museum tank to ease moveing it arround and wern't on the operational vehicle.
#6 You will have to add a thin strip of plastic allong the bottom edge of part P2 the upper rear hull armor plate as there is a small gap there (a holdover from Trumpeters 2003 T34 kits).

Well thats about it.

This was a great project to follow along with and an excellent effort. But only one call out and I should have said something earlier in the thread. Soviet guns came from the factory in complete 4B0. Not white on the inside....sorry. This comment does not dimmish your effort in the least.

It's good to know about the gun color, I'll remember that if I do any future russian armor.
My next project is to do Trumpeters 1/16th. Tiger II with interior. I see that it was started previously here, but I don't know if it was ever finished.

What an excellent build!
If I may add a small correction though, the supplied radio is an R-113 from the '50s and is missing the PSU and maybe intercom boxes. Some info on it here - http://www.radista.info/en_vhf_radio.html#R113

Good day.
There is a problem with the kit. The radio in the kit (I have the same problem with my Trumpeter 1/16 T-34/85)is R-113. The R-113 was introduced in to service in middle 1950. In WW2 vehicle should be 9R or 9RM or 9RS.

I am aware of the radio being wrong for a WW2 build , but I never said it was a WW2 build. I just built it to show what was in the kit and how it went together. This was built almost 2 years ago . I'm surprised anyone is still viewing it.

Good day. The model looks very-very good. I'm just looking for solution for my Trumpeter T-34/85 radio problem.
