In 1944, after the introduction of the german Panther and Tiger tanks, it was obvious that the 76mm gun no longer was sufficient.
So the T-34/85 was fielded.
Apart from a new turret with the more powerful gun, there was now also room for an additional person. The new tank was also equipped with radio and extra external fuel tanks. +lots of other imporvements.
In addition, the new model even costed a lot less to produce, so "Hurra!" indeed!
The MOC has a lot of subtle changes and improvements to it, over the previous T-34/76 MOC also presented here on MOCpages, but the most interessting point is of course the turret, which I think has come out a lot better this time. (although I am not totally convinced by the prototypical white markings.)
I will probably do a third and final model in this T-34 series, namely the SU-100, so stay tuned!
Your SU 100 and Both T34 Russian Tanks are Fantastic. Your latest Build on the T 34 is the BEST one i have seen BUILT and everybody builds a T34. Your's is No. 1 and the next one is No. 5 Keep the great work coming and it is a pleasure to watch for you Builds THX Tom Thompson.
PS the Submarine is also Great !! TT
Apart from the top of the turret, which could stand to be a bit more dome shaped, this is a lovely representation. What's the interior look like? Does it even have one? Anyway, looking forwards to seeing more of this sort of thing from you in the future.
