Aber T-34/76 model 1940 grill
by Nicola Cortese
This Aber release is newly designed to fit Dragon’s
superb T-34/76 model 1940 kit. This newly released T-34/76 kit is one
of the nicest kits produced by the Hong Kong manufacturer; however those
of us who want to take the extra step up in detailing might want to take
a look at Aber’s new grill cover set.
As good as the DML kit is straight out of the box, the
engine grill cover mesh is molded in plastic. Interestingly, the newly
released T-34/76 model 1941 addresses this problem to a certain extent
by including a nice photo etched meshed grill.
As we've come to expect from Aber, the quality if the etch
is superb! A half page instruction sheet is clear and to the point.
The majority of this small set comprises an entire rear
grill cover. Incidentally, the intake screens are molded to the etch fret
and all that is needed is to add the etch reinforcements.
The inner grill detail is a nice touch, leaving potential
for some who may want to display the grill section open, complete with
workable hinges. Finally Aber has included the two missing engine deck
louvers which really add to the overall effect especially when looking
thru the mesh screen.
