The T-34 was way ahead of its time when the German army encountered it in 1941. Sloped armor, wide tracks and a superior gun made this a tank to be feared well into the ending stages of the war which saw it being upgraded time and time again.

Introduction

This is a wargaming kit made by Zvezda in the 1/100 scale (15mm). The box art is nice and the instructions on the back show that this model has only five parts.

Assembly Process

Honestly, assembly is so easy that i don’t even have to explain it. In about 3 minutes i did the following: snapped the turret onto the upper hull and snapped the tracks onto the lower hull. Which brought me half way to the assembly process.

And after i joined the two pieces together to form one beautiful and easy T-34!
