"Academy 1/35 USSR T-34/76 'No. 183 Factory Production' kit #ACY13505"
djackson1959 (Lamar, CO)
When I began to dig through this kit from Academy, I was simply amazed at the amount of not only quality and detail put into it, but by the sheer amount of optional build parts it includes. The tread system is of the molded sectional link type, with no option for any long rubber strip variety. The kit makes a rendition of the T-34/76 M1943 Laminate-style Turret vehicle, in your choice of the early production turret hatches, or the late style with the commander copula. It has the option of replacing the bow MG with a flamethrower unit, for an OT-34/76 model, plus a turret rear radio antenna mount when the flamethrower unit is used. It includes 3 different, complete sets of roadwheel styles to optionally choose from amongst, the early solid rubber-tired, the perforated solid-steel, and the late perforated rubber-tired varieties. The vehicle's handrails are also of optional early or late styles. The kit contains a choice of optional external fuel tanks, in both the hull rear box style, or the rear hull side drums. It even has optional hull rear smoke discharge canisters sometimes found on some of the late production vehicles. The engine cooling screen cover comes in 2 styles, one that is normally found in a solid molded piece, or for those desiring more detail, the area has option for the cooling flaps under the screen and a see-through mesh screen to be applied onto a framework of the cover. The kit has rapidly become my favorite among T-34/76 tanks, especially because of the Laminate Turret style, as most available kits seem to focus on the Hard Edge type, and I am interested in seeing if Academy has anything in the Soft Edge Turret variety. Overall, the kit is of quite good quality, is very detailed, plus loaded with several optional build parts, and I would highly recommend it to others.

"Five Models in One"
I have built quite a few T-34s over my lifetime. So how does this new one from Academy compare? Simply put, it is a great kit. The kit allows you to build five different versions of the T-34/76 1943 model. (I chose the 1943 Kursk version.) The only confusing part of the kit is the instructions, which list all the 5 different options, side by side. You have to read carefully and also decide what version you are going to build, before you start. Okay, the finished model looks great! And I love that the tracks are in hard plastic sections, which save a LOT of time during the build. Yeah, individual track links look good but...they take a lot of time to assemble. Okay, the ONLY thing I did not like about this kit is that the lower hull came in 3 different sections (bottom and 2 sides). This is one of my greatest pet peeves. In almost every T-34 kit I have built, the lower hull comes in one section. Why? It's much easier to assemble. With this lower hull, I was worried that, when I attached the sides to the hull bottom, one side might be off by a small amount, which can cause problems later in the build. Oh! And it did cause a problem! When I attached the rear panel to the lower hull section, there were gaps at both sides, which were easily fixed with modeling putty. But my complaints are very minor. All that matters is the finished model and, it looks great!
