ESCI T-34 model 1942 by Steven Brezinski
Manufacturer: ESCI email: sbrez(at)suscom-maine(dot)net

This is the old ESCI kit (also released under the ESCI/Revell, ESCI/Ertl and Italeri labels) with modifications:
  • Gun barrel replaced with copper tube.
  • Turret hatch taken from DML kit, attached in open position and DML F-34 gun breach and seats installed inside.
  • Sink holes in turret sides filled in and smoothed. Cast turret textured with backing soda on white glue to give a rough cast texture before painting.
  • No unit marking or number as was common in 1942-1943.
  • Casting seam on turret made from styrene strip.
  • Tracks are styrene link & length from an UM kit.
  • Lift rings on turret made from fine wire.
Looking at the photos I note that I missed some small pits and rough spots on the hull! I am tempted to fix them and take new pictures but I know I have moved on and will never get around to doing it!
