Lee,

Did you make new rear mudguards or modify the ones with the kit? Nice mods.

Hello Brown

The Rear mud guards are the ones in the kit. They have been modified from bits off the front mud guards. So it is the same guage as the front and silver soldered. Its a must for the 85. Also it is a little close to the tracks if you have mud on them and it looks better aswell.

Hi Lee,

Nice build, keep the photos coming.
There is a special place in my heart for the T34-85... :wink:

Hi Nick,

During the rush to Berlin the Russian tank crew "liberated" German homes of spring beds and attached them to their tanks.
This was to have the Panzerfausts to bounce off and believe it or not it worked :shock: .

Kind regards
Kent
It´s all in the details!

Hello Chaps

Thanks for your comments. If i can get hold of some more Mesh i will be doing the hull sides. But at the momment i am going on a Picture of a T34/85 with just the two turret sides on. Cant wait for the new motion pack to come out so i can get it running. Im hopefully going to get this done for this years open day.
Thanks for putting the photo Kent.

Hello Chaps

The cast effect came out well. Use the Red Milliput For the 85 turret you will need at least 4 lots
Put on quite thinly about 2mm thick any thicker and you will loose the shape of the turret. Then you stipple it with a stiff wire brush untill you get the effect. Simples :lol:
