This is a combimation of multiple kits. The Vacucast resin kit provided the STZ type hull with the characteristic interlocking hull plates on the front corners. I added the typical water gutters around the turret.
The tracks come from the MMS T-34/76 mod.43 kit. I broke the original Vacucast tracks while unwarping them. They have been repaired, adjusted for length as they were too long. Moreover one was longer than the other. Moreover all the casting defects had to be repaired.
The turret is from the old Matchbox kit, with texture from liquid putty and scratch side vision ports. The gun mantlet was detailed with the appropriate ports and the missing 4 bolts on each side of the gun base
