Photo-etch for T-34/76 Model 1941

by Frank De Sisto


Stock Number and Description Eduard 22103, T-34/76 Model 1941. Photo-etched brass for DML kit
Scale: 1/72
Media and Contents: Photo-etched fret
Price: USD$14.95
Review Type: First Look
Advantages: Helpful additional details and enhancements for kit parts
Recommendation: Highly Recommended



The new crop of 1/72nd-scale kits from DML is quite refined and really only need a bit of etched brass to bring them in to the realm of the super-detailer. This latest item from Eduard is just the trick.

The main item is a finely rendered engine deck screen and frame, as well as the internal baffles that controlled the cooling air for the engine. The smaller vertical grills seen on the sides and top of the hull are also given, for that extra touch of finesse. The remaining parts will allow the modeler to make a new shovel and two-handed saw, and will also give new lids for the external storage boxes. New ice cleats, straps and very tiny mounts for them are given as are straps and brackets for the fuel boxes. Internally, there is a new gun breech and spent shell catcher, as well as internal hatch lid details.

Get out your Optivisor, all you squinty-eyed Braille-scalers…this set’s for you guys!

Highly Recommended.

Thanks to Eduard for the review sample.
