Couldn't help myself...had an urge to revisit the brand Zvezda.... :D

Just for Fun Tank Ready for Paint: T34/85 (Zvezda/ Italeri)

Though it was a relatively fast build...I can't say it wasn't without it's challenges....I'm not sure if it's the joining of the two companies ...how they arranged things...whether Italeri bought the molds from Zvezda and remachined them....but there were some tricky areas to deal with :problem: ...also gone were the really nice overcast welds that were present on the JS 2 :thumbdown:
Overall....I like this model...like the JS 2....found it straight forward ...no frills no thrills....Just a nice solid build with good result :D
The tracks were pretty nice too ;)

Just for fun Tank ...Painted: T34/85 (Zvezda/ Italeri)

I Already have done this model in 1/16th...so this was purely for fun :D

My first intention was to go white like I did with my 1/16th....But someone special and dear to my heart said she really liked the color on the box
when she told me this...my reply was...It's going to be white :haha: ....she sounded a little disappointed ...but went on telling me about other things ;)
As I set up my airbrush gear...a note that it was her birthday...popped into mind...and being that Pravda will be going green in the next Movie...though the color is a tad darker....I said to myself..........Self....Just do it (think I talk to myself too much lol)...found a special green ...took it from my kit ...Long story short...Here it is :D

Spoiler: show
HAPPY BIRTHDAY ..MY LADY IN RED :thumbup:

Not to worry Mr K....More will come....not right away though...will probably skip back to 1/16th for a little while...I haven't really gone over what has arrived..but I think I have everything I need now for my Firefly build
This one was kind of a fluke....It arrived hours before the other parts I needed did....since my time is pretty tight now days..Got a chance to do a quick look over of the parts ..decided it would be a fast build...and it was....Less than 24 hrs from start to finish. :thumbup: ...I'm really starting to like Zvezda....they aren't simple to do...but they give you a really nice kit to work with ...though I wouldn't recommend them for a Novice or even an Intermediate builder...as there are quite a few tricks that need to be used to get a nice result ;)

Dead??????? 8O ....what about your other tanks....I stepped over from my Kai to swap sprockets on my M1...no drilling baby :haha: :haha: ...Figure I may as well get moving on the decals so I can get some photos up of it finished

That dilemma plaguing your JS must be severe ...what's going on with it :shifty:

Good to see you back...I too was starting to look on milk cartons...problem was I don't know what you look like ;) ...... :haha:

That means I have to remove the wheel weights from the rear of the turret base .

Finally have a look at the electronics topic IBU3 Tankbear , I have been a bad boy MR A 8O .......... :haha: :haha: .

Can't be all that bad if the final effect is what you want...It's the creedo I build by ;)
Good luck with sorting out everything :thumbup:

Great to know you are still alive and well :clap: ............ :haha:

How are you MR A ?

Still hanging in there Mr K.....at the moment still can't seem to dredge up much time for the model kits though...Still have those POS Modelkasten Tracks to mess with....a Porsche Tiger 3/4s ways done...and the Type 90 Kai at about 45% done...so Christmas is a tad optimistic for me ;) ..... :haha:

Not going to tell you how much it is worth because you may require resuscitation 8O .......... :haha: :haha: MR A and documentation , parts bag goodness me :( .

I wouldn't have minded owning a oldie Sherman like the one TB restored...Just for the fun of it you know ;) ...But no need to pass on it's value to me...as with all things considered collectable...it's as valuable as what someone is willing to pay....Me? ...I'm a tad frugal...so it wouldn't me worth more than having it just as a conversation piece :D

It's a runner now though...happy TB sorted everything so he can have some fun with it :thumbup:
