The T-34 medium tank was one of the most mass-produced tanks of the Second World War. In its modification, the "T-34-85", it became the "tank of victory" that completed the defeat of the armored forces of Nazi Germany. Many engineering innovations were applied to the most famous Soviet medium tank. The ricochet angle of the turret armor, the stabilizer of the main gun, speed, and maneuverability brought him the main advantages on the battlefields. The tank's weak points remained insufficient armor protection and gun range. The second problem was solved in the "T-34-85". The main gun was replaced by an 85mm long-range anti-tank gun, which restored parity of firepower with the German combat vehicles "Tiger II" and "Panther".
There were numerous books written and countless propaganda films made about the T-34-85 in the USSR. But objectively, it was a successful development of Soviet engineers. The maneuverable tank, which was sufficiently fast and controlled by four crew members, could successfully conduct both a head-on tank battle and cover infantry, as well as serve as a means of transportation for personnel or ammunition on the armor. Its profile was not devoid of elegance and remained a model of tank architecture for a long time.
A mini model kit for self-assembly of the “T-34-85” tank of “Metal Time” is a great gift for all fans of military equipment, history of engineering thought, and enthusiasts of technical modeling. This small set can be the beginning of a hobby of assembling large-scale models. It will provide you and your family or friends with several hours of creative and positive communication.
The "T-34-85" model features the recognizable design of the legendary medium tank, including the unique profile, turret, chassis, hatches, radiator grilles, and armament. The surfaces are textured and imprinted using the electrochemical etching method, giving the model a similarity to the original combat vehicle. All model parts are made of stainless steel used in the food industry, production of consumer goods, and toys. Assembling the "T-34-85" model does not pose any harm to the owner. The precise cut allows assembling the models without the use of additional tools, soldering, and gluing.
The DIY scale model "T-34-85" can be used as a souvenir, interior decoration, and valuable prize for military game enthusiasts. It can also be used to create installations, layouts, or reconstructions of World War II tank battles. It will occupy a worthy place on the stand with the collection of “Metal Time” workshop's assembled models. But its primary purpose is technical creativity, joint modeling, and development of manual skills.
Assembling “Metal Time” models encourages owners to study the history of technology and develop construction skills. Each of our models is assigned a unique serial number, turning them into collectibles and exchange items. The “Metal Time” constructor owners club is a developing community of enthusiastic construction people.
The “Metal Time” loyalty program regularly provides pleasant surprises to our constructor owners.
