T-34 Damaged and Steel Road Wheels
Voyager Model, 1/35 scale
The Voyager models range has always included resin upgrades and have since their inception been known for their casting quality. I have grouped two of their newest T-34 resin releases together:
PEA103: Voyager Model Damaged Road Wheels for T34/76
This set is labelled “Damaged” but it should read “burnt out” as the Road Wheels depicted have all the rubber portion of the wheel missing, exposing the steel cables underneath.
The casting is first rate, with no pin holes present and they almost “click together. Five Road Wheels are present in package so I guess to do a completely burnt out tank you would have to buy 2 sets. This is my only criticism as the detail present on these castings is first rate.
PEA104: Voyager Model Steel Road Wheels for T34/76
This set has four very well cast all steel Road wheels (so often seen in conjunction with the standard Steel type wheels in period photographs.)
The wheels themselves have a very nicely done “cast effect” on their surface but have a largish casting block to remove from each wheel.
I believe these would be a worth while addition to any early to mid T-34/76.
Thanks to Voyager Model for the samples
