T35 (15mm)

T35 (15mm)

Postby Fitz » 14 Nov 2017

I built and painted this mainly to test a new Vallejo colour to represent 4BO Protective Green, and I'm pretty pleased with the result.

I already have more T35s finished than I really need — I bought five of them from PSC as a "squadron" deal, and there are still two left in their boxes. In fact, T35s worked in units of two.

Good question. If Zvezda ever retool this kit (which is unlikely) I hope they emphasize the side-skirt rivets a bit more. They are actually there in the plastic, but they're so fine that they disappear under even a very thin airbrushed coat of paint. Considering that the original rivet heads were actually about 50 or 60mm in diameter, I think they've under-scaled them when they could have quite easily done them quite visibly to scale.

They never worked in units of two. One at least, often two, would be broken down ;)
