Mark constructive criticism is good every time before finish project.
This turret based on drawings from T34 Mitical weapon by Michulec.
I did the built report parallel on 1-25saf.com but unfortunately all pics from imageshack are gone.

Not to be too critical, but the turret seems somewhat undersized? From the photos it's almost certainly too narrow. It's also appears to be missing the side vision ports.
Do you have better photos of it?

Hull of SU and T34 are mostly ready.

Time to rework the chassi and I plan to do, that in spite of the differences I can adapt it to SU and T34.

The differences are in the position of escape hatch and 2 inspection caps.

New designed by my friend Michael SU85M was a good occasion to presentation new resin road wheels to T34 during modelers meeting. We plan to have most of road wheels and two drive sprocket and idler wheel. Michael use stamped road wheels to SU85 and me semispider road wheels to my T34. Please look at them and by the way on the new chassi roofand engine deck;-).

It is time for the roof of the hull.
After the first steps, it looked as follow

By the way, I got 2 air vents


I knew that the next step will be to notch the whole floor slab and replacing it with a new, correct.



By the way, look at the painted and assembled tracks

It was certain that it will not take long as I sit down to the table.
First I painted in 3 stages tracks to enjoy them.





Then I changed the front of tamiya`s late T34 performing early, semi-circular ram beam. (what is english name?)Edit is it "front girder"?




and corrected shape of machine gun cover

In 2015
At first I receive from Aber PE fender to T34 and to SU85M/100.It`s rescaled, commersial version of his 1-35 kit.
New our resin tracks are much better then first and second version. Also some new details, periscope, resin engine deck, etc.


I still feels unsatisfied

Hello again!
Six yeas ago I started one of my projects, conversion T34-85 from Tamiya to T34-76 hexagonal turret.It was very difficult, because nowhere You can get accessories to this scale. After some first steps i open my small forum`s shop for hobbyist like me.Step by step and now we have new line with resin accessories but, about it some words by the way.
In 2009
Resin hexagonal turre, commander cupola,new semi spider road wheels,smaller ring under turret,towing cables
