T-34/76 1942/43 FACTORY No.183 AFV CLUB 1/35

T-34/76 1942/43 FACTORY No.183 AFV CLUB 1/35 BOX PACKAGEThis time, I will make this AFV Club T-34. When I bought this about 10 years ago, I mistakenly bought an internal reproduction model of clear parts. I wasn’t really interested in interior reproduction, so I was wondering what to do with it. I will make only the outside and paint it as usual. I feel it’s a little wasteful as there will be a lot of unused parts.

T-34 WAFER-TYPE WORKABLE TRACK LINKS SET 1/35 MINIART BOX PACKAGEThe belt-type tracks in the kit are not so bad, so I used it for Tamiya SU-85 a while ago. That’s why I will use the waffle type of tracks from the Miniart. It’s not expensive, so you can use it easily.

T-34/76 1942/43 FACTORY No.183 AFV CLUB 1/35 MAKING When I opened the box of the Miniart tracks kit, the parts are bundled and it is very compact.

T-34/76 1942/43 FACTORY No.183 AFV CLUB 1/35 MAKING I don’t have much experience that it is easy to put on this type of track. It is difficult to fit pins into holes. In the end, I cut off the pin part with a cutter and assembled it like ordinary connecting tracks. In other words, it’s like building a Magic Track of Dragon Models.

T-34/76 1942/43 FACTORY No.183 AFV CLUB 1/35 MAKING It took some time, but I managed to finish wearing the tracks. As I thought, the connection type would be better for the T-34 series.

T-34/76 1942/43 FACTORY No.183 AFV CLUB 1/35 MAKING Next is this big clear part. It’s usually painted in dark green, so I didn’t care much if the glue came out. But I feel a little guilty about making clear parts dirty.

T-34/76 1942/43 FACTORY No.183 AFV CLUB 1/35 MAKINGI think it takes a lot of time to make the interior because it is packed in many parts.

T-34/76 1942/43 FACTORY No.183 AFV CLUB 1/35 MAKING It is quite difficult to make clear parts of this turret without getting dirty. If I make it like the box package, it will be a display like a museum material.

T-34/76 1942/43 FACTORY No.183 AFV CLUB 1/35 MAKING Is it a box-shaped reserve fuel tank on the back of the T-34? This is my first time to build this type. I often see round drums lined up side by side for the reserve fuel tanks of Russian tanks.

T-34/76 1942/43 FACTORY No.183 AFV CLUB 1/35 MAKING Only 5000 sets of T- 34/76 with the full interior! on the package. But after that, it seems to be reproduced quite often.

T-34/76 1942/43 FACTORY No.183 AFV CLUB 1/35 PAINTING Even if the kit uses a lot of big clear parts, I can give up after painting this. I blew the usual surfacer.

T-34/76 1942/43 FACTORY No.183 AFV CLUB 1/35 PAINTING Since it is a single color painting, I lightly blew white to add gradation.

T-34/76 1942/43 FACTORY No.183 AFV CLUB 1/35 PAINTING This decal has a lot of clear margins, so I put Tamiya Gloss Varnish on the place to make the surface shiny. I don’t know what will happen.

T-34/76 1942/43 FACTORY No.183 AFV CLUB 1/35 FINISHED WORK The T-34 is the famous tank of the Soviet army, and I think it was the most successful Russian tank at WWII. It was difficult to defeat with German tanks and antitank guns, and the battle to develop tanks was accelerated.

T-34/76 1942/43 FACTORY No.183 AFV CLUB 1/35 FINISHED WORK After the war between Germany and the Soviet Union started, the mass production of tanks started in the Soviet Union, and they were made at factories all over the country. Each factory has a slightly different shape, and the kit is “Made of the “183” factory”. What a maniac classification. The famous one was Stalingrad’s “Gilgensky Tractor Plant”. I often come out on the stage when I play FPS games.

T-34/76 1942/43 FACTORY No.183 AFV CLUB 1/35 FINISHED WORK T-34/76 1942/43 FACTORY No.183 AFV CLUB 1/35 FINISHED WORK I personally like the kit that uses clear parts for headlights to be as bright as possible. This tank is still a 76.2 mm anti-tank gun, so it has less firepower than the later T-34. The turret is also small. After that, the T-34 with larger turret and stronger armor will be developed more and more.

T-34/76 1942/43 FACTORY No.183 AFV CLUB 1/35 FINISHED WORK By the way, the slogan on the turret is “Chelyabinsk farm workers”. In other words, it means a tank financed by donations from the farmworkers.
