I'm surprised I didn't join this GB yet, many, many possibilities 😛 Two such possible projects that I have on my to-do list are the T-34/37 SPAAG & the T-34/122. Both are concept design that were never built, not sure if such builds are allowed in this GB though? If not maybe I'll go with the cold-war Egyptian T-34/122 that RFM recently released.

I originally specified that only vehicles actually built were to be allowed. However after consulting with a friend I will allow still-born designs as long as you show they were really drawn up.  I shall amend the opening post accordingly unless there are any objections. 

 

Things have been a bit hectic at SleeperCentral and I'm way, way behind so I must welcome @Foxbat @Mig Eater to the build, @exdraken if you want to build a test vehicle in 2019 go right ahead ;) In fact anybody could do this tell your Mum I said it is OK :D

I've been looking at that RFM one as well. There's a Model Wheels 1/72 version too, but previous experience puts me off trying another of their kits for a while yet.

I think @Sgt.Squarehead would agree with you there. 'Challenging' perhaps?

Daft question time, if I wanted to build a post war T-34/85 (probably in the Middle East) what would be the best 1/35 kit to buy?

Ive got a icm kit in the stash its the  t-34 76 though, but i can say for this kit it looks simple to build with nice details too ,  cheap too ..i can have a look at the tracks tomorrow if you like ,i cant remember if they're  single link or length and link ,looks a real nice kit though,  I'll  be building this in the upcoming 34 gb

But icm do the 34 /85 too

Just got the following from the Club's T-34 1/35 expert

Quote

Tamiya, Academy or Dragon are fine. Depends on budget and skill. All build well and complexity/price scales upwards from Tamiya. For something different, Ryfield do a T34/122 but has a price point at the higher end.

Count me in, could be good to do a T34, hopefully one with some tank riders.

You are in then. Welcome to the Build Up for the Campaign.

Hello,

 

this GB fits very well into my plans for 2020, so may I join with UM 1/72 T-34/76 with F-34 gun?

 

Thanks in advance and regards,

Srđan (srkirad)

Could you draft  me into this one please.

 

Don't know which kit I will be choosing as I have a fair few in the stash, so I will have to decide nearer the time

 

Cheers

 

Keith

Since I appear to have reserved a slot already it would be rude not to take it up. 

 

I'm in for this with something 1/72

 

All the best

Apologies for the long absences but things should get better from now on...he said hopefully.

 

A very warm welcome to you all.

 

For any working in 1/48 MasterClub have just released a set of T-34 tracks. If they're only half as good as their KV & JS tracks they'll be fantastic.

Does anyone have any recommendations for a suitable T-34 kit in 1/35?

 

I'd like to build a fairly early T-34/76.

Dragon are your best bet for an early 34/76 as Corsair said, they have different boxings for different turret types etc. Not so easy to find though plus when you do it will be expensive.

 

ICM do a really nice one, though it is the 1943 model so perhaps too late for you (?) also reboxed by Revell. The tracks are a bit odd (vinyl) but can be found for under £20.

If you want an interior, AFV Club have you covered (I’m a massive fanboy of theirs) but again not so easy to find though I’m sure I read somewhere that they rereleased it this year (again 1943 model though).

Tamiya’s 34/76 is a really old moulding I think, from the 70s, quite hard to find...

 

https://www.scalemates.com/kits/tamiya-89563-t34-85-w-assault-infantry-set--141253

 

Oddly, for such an iconic vehicle, it’s not so easy to grab one these days...

Hi Comrade Tank Builders!

 

I've nudged this as a new member @The Semi Skilled Mink is returning to model-making after a long break and has decided (very wisely) to start with a T-34. As he wants to do a 1941 Model the post above should help him too.

 

To echo SimonT the thin coverage of the early versions is quite surprising. Remember the ForSale/Wanted section here on BM, maybe somebody is struggling to decide what to sell and an enquiry may turn up trumps. Not #45 trumps of course :D

As a regular builder of 48th scale armour, I can vouch for the tamiya range.  They build up nice and quickly, and they are big enough that I can actually see what I am doing without a visor most of the time, without going overboard on either dimensions or parts count

 

Edit: For those people after a challenge. Don't forget that Hobbyboss have a range of 1/48 T34s with full interior. It has been said that they are downscale versions of someone e else's 16th scale offering, but they do make an impressive model, especially if you can pose them in such a way as to make the interior easily visible.
