  1. So i have been wanting to build a T-62M, but since the only aftermarket kit is out of production, I have settled with getting the T-62 BDD from trumpeter and found some anti-radiation lining photo-etch fasteners. I am unsure how I should approach it, I was thinking that spreading and flattening milllitput on a flat surface first and then putting it on the model to cut it into the correct shape, and punch some correct diameter imprints for the fasteners would work, but I am not 100% sure this is the best way, or if there is a better epoxy to use than standard milliput. here it you can see what it looks like, it should also have a subtle mesh like texture
  2. Hi All. Usually Im doing two projects parallel - one in painting stage one in build. So if I'm feed up with one type of work can switch to other. So this time something unusual in my warkshop - modern tank. I've got few more in my stash, so definitely not the last one. This is the "hero". First time I've used the Master Club metal tracks. My impression? I his set wasn't super. Links won't fit together and every single one I have to file to make them fit. Pins are fiddle and carpet monster was happy to eat few of them. I still have few different sets so not saying that Friulmodel are better, but with this set I think I build the Friulmodel quicker. Moving further. Rear fuel barrels not making "wow" effect ... ... so decided to remove one of the brackets. Also reproduced the fuel lines for fender tanks. This is how it looks now. Not decided yet, maybe I leave one barrel on?
  3. After having been given permission by our esteemed and generous hosts I am going to build what has been described as the ultimate evolution of the basic T-54/55 design, the T-62. Now I know that this is not a view held by all and I left it up to the hosts to decide and they have allowed it to go ahead. The kit I will be using is the recent Trumpeter T-62 Mod.1975 and it looks like a very nice and well detailed kit too and is considered to be the best 1/35 T-62 available, not that there is a lot of competition! So lets have a look at the box and whats inside it, starting with the box art; And what is inside when you remove the lid; Ooh lots of goodies, lets have a look at some. We will start with the tracks as you get two options, either the old style vinyl single length tracks or individual links: Now I'm no expert (far from it) but those vinyl tracks don't look that bad close up; I am most likely going to go down the individual link route but it's nice to know that I have a usable fall back option if time gets away from me. You also get the option of a metal main gun barrel and some etched grills and twisted copper wire for the tow rope; Not bad as standard with a kit. You get a nice representation of a DShk 12.7mm AA gun, no respecting Soviet tank should be seen without one; You get a set of crew figures that @Stix would do a far better job of then me; And a nice set of individual weapons for them, though I'm not sure if they are too modern for the era; And the colour paint guide which gives you the Soviet version of early Ford cars, any colour you want as long as its green; I will have a look in my stash as I'm sure I might have some more interesting markings (not hard) somewhere. I hope to be able to make a cursory start on her soon. Thanks for looking in and as usual all comments and criticisms are gratefully received. Craig.
  4. In January the new tool (some 49 parts) T-62 MBT by Trumpeter (#07146) has appeared on the market. Presumably it's miles ahead of the vintage ESCI/Italeri one and the crude ACE short-run. But has anybody of you already touched it in the reality? What is your opinion? Can we call it THE definitive one or should we wait for the Modelcollect #72021 new tool announced at the end of 2017? Cheers Michael
  5. T-62 mod 1975 (mod.1962+KTD2) 1:35 Trumpeter The T-62 was produced between 1961 and 1975. It became a standard tank in the Soviet arsenal, partly replacing the T-55, although that tank continued to be manufactured in the Soviet Union and elsewhere after T-62 production was halted. Its 115 mm gun was the first smoothbore tank gun in use. It could fire kinetic penetrator rounds, a new larger turret and ring, which in itself required a re-designed larger hull. Additional armour was incorporated in the re-design, but this was concentrated in the upper hull at the expense of the lower hull and roof area. Once in service the tank underwent a seemingly endless upgrade process, of which the Mod.1975 was a T-62 Obr.1972 equipped with a KTD-1 or KTD-2 laser rangefinder in an armoured box over the main armament. It also has concealed bolts around the commander's cupola. The kit represents a MOD 1975 fitted with a KTD-2 laser rangefinder. The Kit Yet another T-62 release from Trumpeter, they really are getting their moneys worth from the moulds. The boxart shows a vehicle in what is assumed to be Afghanistan with Mujahideen? figures (back when they were the good guys). Inside for the main tank there are eight sprues of light grey styrene, separate lower hull, seven of brown styrene (track links), four of black styrene, one of clear, two sheets of etched brass, a turned aluminium barrel, plus a length of copper wire. For the figures there is one main sheet of grey plastic, and three sheets of a softer black plastic for the figures weapons. All the parts are beautifully moulded with great detail and surface texture. There is no sign of flash or other imperfections, but there are a lot of moulding pips that need to be removed and will add to the cleaning up required. Construction start with the wheels. 5 pairs of road wheels are made up for each side. The rubber parts of the wheels being supplied in black plastic. The individual wheels are made up then paired with a hub going on the outer one. Two drive sprockets and two idler wheels are also made up. The modeller then moves to the lower hull, four plates each side are added then the rear of the hull is added. The suspension components are added along with the pate at the front of the tank. Once the suspension parts are in the wheels can be added. The tracks are up next and these are individual links which are cut from the sprues and clicked together. Unfortunately the instructions dont tell you how many are needed per side, so itll be a matter of trial and error. With the tracks fitted the upper hull requires some holes to be drilled out before being fitted out with periscopes, towing hitches, turret ring rails, headlight and other small fittings. The engine deck hatches are now assembled, consisting of a mixture of styrene with etched grilles. The upper hull deck and engine deck sections are then glued into position. The two track guards are then fitted out with the various storage boxes and spare fuel tanks, as well as the front and rear mudguards, the completed items are then fitted to the hull. The two rear mounted fuel drums, each made from six parts and are fitted to the rear bulkhead. The searchlight and hatches are now assembled; the hatches have detail on both the internal and external faces. The upper turret section needs some hole being opened up before going any further. Once theyre done the vision blocks are fitted from the inside, whilst on the outside the hatch rings and side mounted hand rails are fitted, along with the aerial base. The hatch assemblies are then glued into position, followed by the commanders sight, searchlight, periscopes and numerous other fittings. The upper and lower turret sections are then joined and the snorkel assembly attached to the rear. Two more searchlights are then attached to the turret roof, followed by the ten part thermal sight. The barrel is then assembled, provided in three sections, with each section moulded in two halves. If you dont want to use this method, Trumpeter have kindly provided a metal barrel which just need the muzzle gluing on to the end. Whichever you use the barrel is then slid through the mantlet cover and onto the turret. The heavy AA machine gun is made up from nine parts and when complete can be fitted to the commanders hatch ring. The completed turret is then fitted to the hull completing the model. There is only one decal option, that of Tank 720 in overall Russian Tank Green or similar. Figures Four figures are provided in typical Afghan dress. There is one sprue of AK-47s with and with out stocks, one sprue with two Lee Enfield rifles, and lastly a small sprue with a soviet PPSh-41. The figures are well sculpted and the weapons excellent. Markings A small sheet of decals is provided, however placement is not referenced on the instructions! Conclusion Yes, Trumpeter have released another T-62 variant. At least you cant say you havent got a choice if Russian tanks are your thing. My review colleague has built a few of these and tells me he havent ever had a problem with the build. If you like tanks then you need at least one of these in your collection, highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of UK Distributors for
  6. Russian T-62 Mod. 1975, (Mod 1972 + KTD-2) Trumpeter 1:35 History The T-62 was produced between 1961 and 1975.

It also has concealed bolts around the commander's cupola. The kit represents a MOD 1975 fitted with a KTD-2 laser rangefinder. The Model Yet another T-62 release from Trumpeter, they really are getting their money’s worth from the moulds. The boxart shows a vehicle on the road during a parade in the standard Indian colour scheme for this type. Inside there are ten sprues of light grey styrene, separate lower hull, seven of brown styrene, five of black styrene, one of clear, a sprue of a rubbery material, a bit like Dragons DS material, three sheets of etched brass, a turned alluminium barrel, plus a length of copper wire and decal sheet. All the parts are beautifully moulded with great detail and surface texture. There is no sign of flash or other imperfections, but there are a lot of moulding pips that need to be removed and will add to the cleaning up required. Construction begins with the road wheels: each wheel consisting of the wheel and separate tyre. The wheels are then paired up, the outside wheel being fitted with a central hub part. The idlers are of similar construction, whilst the sprockets are made up from three parts. The rear bulkhead is then fitted to the lower hull and detailed with a spare length of track and the four rear lights. The modeller is given a choice of lower glacis plate, which is then fitted to the lower hull, along with the torsion bar suspension, onto which each pair of wheels is attached, and gear covers onto which the sprockets are fitted. The tracks are made from individual links, unfortunately the instructions don’t tell you how many are needed per side, so it’ll be a matter of trial and error. With the tracks fitted the upper hull requires some holes to be drilled out before being fitted out with periscopes, towing hitches, turret ring rails, headlight and other small fittings. The engine deck hatches are now assembled, consisting of a mixture of styrene with etched grilles. The upper hull deck and engine deck sections are then glued into position.

The heavy AA machine gun is made up from nine parts and when complete can be fitted to the commanders hatch ring. The completed turret is then fitted to the hull completing the model. There is only one decal option, that of Tank 720 in overall Russian Tank Green or similar. Rather unusually for Trumpeter they have included four crewmen in this kit. There are three standing, and one squatting, AK in hand. Whilst the figures are in normal styrene, their helmets are in the DS style material, which look quite realistic. There is also a sprue of weapons, four AK’s with separate magazines, two with folded stocks and two with extend stocks. Conclusion Yes, Trumpeter have release4d another T-62 variant. At least you can’t say you haven’t got a choice if Russian tanks are you thing. I’ve built a few Trumpeter and Hobbyboss AFV’s and haven’t ever had a problem with the build, although I would probably change the tracks for a set from Friulmodel or the like. If you like tanks then you need at least one of these in your collection, highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of UK Distributors for
