1/48 Hobby Boss T-34

December 28, 2016 · in Armor · · 11 · 1.9K

This is the first kit I've built, and I was not ready for all the internal detail, complete engine and crew compartment - what a fabulous kit! Unfortunately with what I had planned for it I never built the interior, except for the gun, and once the Tank Commander was added you cant even see that.

I added the Tamiya figures and they were pretty good too.

The kit and the figures are straight from the box and no after market items, so was a cheap build for once.

Due to room in my display cabinet becoming very tight I have had to put off making it into a diorama (for now), but already have that planned out in my head for another time.
