Hi Simon,

Thanks for your nice comments on my T34 build.
It's been a great kit to work on and build and adding lot's of upgrades, although it took a long time make.
Just got one or two more things to make like bed rolls, straps for tying up various tools etc….before I'm totally satisfied that I have done all I can……!
Still got to work on the inside and get it mobile, which will be fun!

What to do next I wonder…..?

Back to my Panzer III kit, which is unfinished or maybe start my New 25pdr and Limber kits…spoilt for choice I think!

Well what ever the next kit it might be I will try and continue with my pics and written instructional drawings!

Anyway happy to know that you and others enjoyed my posts on my T34-85 kit.



Cheers
Ian

Hi All,

Just my last few upgrades for my T34.

Adding baggage, Camouflage nets, Belts, straps to hold tools etc in place. Also added some more rust effects to my spare tank tracks.

Hope you all enjoyed my long drawn out journey, with my upgrade builds pics & drawings to the T34 kit.
It was fun while it lasted…..

Just got to work inside on all the electric stuff etc, and get it mobile!

Cheers
Ian :D

that is a great looking build, they are a lot of work from start to finish, and at this level even more input, well done Ian. regards Simon manning.

Hi Simon,

Glad you enjoyed my build on upgrades to my T34.

Now after the long enjoyable months, years! of making all these parts and illustrating them, and next thing is to sort out all the internal electric stuff, sound, motion, smoke etc inside…………Hoping some day to bring it along to one of Armortek Open day's!…….

Further to almost completing my version of the T34, (No 27)….
I would like to come back at a later stage of producing, designing a A5 or A4 landscape booklet of my own experiences of making the upgrade parts and illustrations, with photographs for UPGRADES ON ARMORTEK T34-85 KIT.

Cheers
Ian
