FirstLook

 

Maquette's 1/35 scale Egyptian T-34/100 is a great subject. The model is based on the late-model T-34/85 released by Maquette in the 1990s. This is a good, accurate kit, but the moulds are showing their age with lots of flash and sink marks on the plastic parts. Some parts were also damaged in transit.

The package also include resin and white metal parts to depict the specific attributes of the T-34/100. The hollow-cast two piece resin turret is the most prominent of these. Extra parts are supplied in case the modeller wants to scratch build an interior for the vehicle.

Maquette also produce an engine and transmission set, inexpensively available separately, which will add to the detail of the model.

ICM has a 100mm field gun as a full kit. This might also be purchased to use the breech detail in a scratchbuilt turret interior.

 

 

This is an interesting kit wit plenty of multimedia parts to produce an accurate rendition of a great looking vehicle. However, it will be most appropriate for experienced modellers.

Recommended to experienced modellers.


Thanks to Squadron.com for the review sample.
