T-34-85 Model 1944 Tank . Hi, guys! I proudly present my version of the famous T-34-85 Model 1944 battle tank. . I'm sure you've already heard a lot about the T34 series, so I won't flood you with the trivial info. I'd only like to point out the 5 specs that made this tank great: 1. wide tracks 2. diesel engine 3. sloped armor 4. Christie suspension 5. 76/85 caliber main gun All of this provided excellent armor/fire_power/speed combination that proved very effective in making and exploiting breakthroughs in the enemy defense lines. I've seen several very good models of the T-34. However, few had green camo and the correct track width. That's why, I decided to build my own model. I made an effort to keep the correct overall size ratios and angles of sloped armor as well. It took me about 3 months, a couple of hours each day, to complete (rendering not included). I didn't go for a PF design because it wouldn't work well without a real suspension at this scale. Note that all parts that were used do exist and can be purchased from bricklink. The scale is approximately 1:28. All hatches can be opened. There is an engine and a crew compartment (see images below). In reality a crew of 5 operated the T-34-85. There is a crew of only 2 inside this MOC (a driver and a machine gunner). The rest of the crew normally operated inside the turret. However, LEGO minifigs are too big to fit into a tank at this scale. If you wonder, how I've attached the external oil tanks, I found a bug in LDD that in real life would require cutting out a bit of the inner side of the round bricks ;) This is the interior. A 12-cylinder diesel engine at the back. 8 shells, a medic kid, and the crew of 2 minifigs in the front. Not much space for anything else. No interior is available for the turret. The turret hatches can be opened but no space below them to fit anything meaningful. I took time to take a look at pictures of the real thing, even found out some basic blueprints. I hope you enjoyed it. If you have any questions or remarks, feel free to ask or comment.
