Inxsone's T-34

9/22/04 - German crewed T-34 (captured)

 

This is a piece I started last Friday 9/17 for a friend requesting a unique item... It is a DeSimone T-34/76 Model 1941 that the owner wanted painted as a captured vehicle in German use... He didn't want to spend allot of money so I made do with the stock items and added some scratchbuilt custom accessories to it...

I left it generally marked so that the owner could use it as Heer, Waffen SS or Luft...

The fuel tanks are made out of PVC piping and sheet styrene, 1 1/2" PVC pipe modified with sheet styrene.

A million little pin holes appeared after I applied primer paint, but can be fixed by putting on a few thin layers of primer, and then by the base coat.  You still have a little uneven dimpling after (at least I did) but that gives a good impression of rough steel plate in my opinion which looks great for these tanks.
