Russian T-34/76 for Academy

1:35 Eduard

Eduard are really churning out the etched detail sets, trying to keep up with the number of releases that the various manufacturers are putting out, plus issuing sets for older kits. This set is for the Academy 1:35 T-34/76 Russian medium tank.  The relief etched sheets are up to the usual standards as Eduard seem to have good quality control on their releases.  Coming in the usual sleeve packaging with card inserts to protect the brass there is one set for the exterior and one for the interior.

 

[36395] This set is contained on one medium sized sheet of brass. Apart from the usual brackets and clamps that most of these sets include, particularly for the pioneer tools there are also upper suspension plates, grab handles, complete replacement horn and hatch fittings.  The front and rear mudguards are also completely replaced, and will require some careful folding and rolling to get the shapes right. The engine intake and exhaust grilles are replaced, along with their attachment frames. The stowage boxes are fitted with replacement lids, hinges and carrying handles. There is also a new armoured plate that covers the top of the manlet.

Conclusion

Even Academys T-34 can do with some extra detailing, and this set provides enough to make the difference without going overboard.  It’s not a huge set, and with care and patience the parts should be ok to be used by all but the pure novice but still be slightly challenging in areas.
