I agree with you there Dale. I have always thought the 85 version looks top heavy.

I will do a deal with you -You buy the kit, and I'll build it and post it on the forum :shock: :D

As far as I know, Dale had built a beautiful 1/8 static T-34/76 a while ago. Dale it's displayed in Parramatta Wheels bookshop remember?

Dale,
I would like to see some T-34/76 on the forum as well. I would have thought it would be more popular than it apparently is. Good to know you are still out there. Any tank projects planned?
Best regards,
Bob

Hello Bob . I'm on the forum each day checking out all the builds . I'm moving slowly on my 2010 Mid Tiger 1 , Which is the best Armortek kit so far . The photo below is of my new hobby this is my new 1944 GPW jeep , The Centurion is owned by my new friend Klint , he is 29 yrs old and he has just brought this Aussie Centurion six months ago she is one of the best centurion's around all in working order . Klint lives five K's from me ...Dale

Hi Dale, No wonder you were quiet on the forum for a while, only busy on the 1:1 Jeep, and 1:1 Centurion.

I remember several years ago, there was an Aussie bloke had tried to owned a Centurion (maybe from overseas?), not only ended up his tank was confiscated by the Customs, but also himself under investigated by the Federal Police, the Defense Department, and off course by the DPP(Public Prosecutions). Haven't heard further news about him ever since. But "
No news doesn't really mean good news...".

So it really surprises me that real Tank could be bought/sold in OZ now.

BTW, is your Jeep imported from overseas or found locally?

Here are pics of my T34/76(assuming they display ok), Armortek number 33

I need to spray it again and fill some parts, I dont go for detailing as you can probably tell,infact have gone to a lot of effort to smooth bits that would otherwise look more authentic rough or showing joins.

I agree, I think the first 76mm Armortek I've seen completed other than the prototype. Looks really good -even as a plane Jane T-34. Very nice lines, you can why it was so effective early on. Bob

A very different t34 build but very nice, i do like the very clean, minimalistic build here, it gives this tank a very unusual look, good work.
