Glad the hull is not a problem......that turret sure looks like a gap waiting to happen! A challenge ahead of you there mate.

I fixed the gap by sanding down the sides of the turret ring and also deepening the channel that the ring mates to on the inside of the turret.



Once I glue the turret halves together I can bring out the putty and get rid of the join lines

Ok here are some progress photos of the painted interior.

Left side view


Right side view


Front view. I am going to weather those ammo boxes and add some scuff marks and paint chips around the interior


Rear view. Much of this will not be visible once the engine, transmission and radiators are attached.


Rear view with engine and transmission. Does anyone know what color is the round air cleaner/filter?


Right side with upper hull. Most of the engine will be covered once the armored covers are installed.


Top view


View of turret. That's the reason why I chose the early model T-34/76 because of the large hatch.

Here are some close-ups.







Those red pipes is the exhaust and is in need of weathering.

This looks great. I wonder if the local shops here have them. I need to get one.
