This rarity among the armored world was for me a kind of an unreachable aim, I like to face this conversion projects with scratch, but this turret is a terrible point and it would take much more time consuming, thus I finally purchased the Accurate Armour’s conversion kit. The aim of this article is to lead the reader through this building experience and share my view on how this vehicle should be painted.

The kit I used as base is one of the last T-34 from Dragon (#6319), which has a lot of improvements and corrections regarding the previous ones, providing PE and “magic tracks”. The Accurate kit is the old #C069 and I call it “old” since if it has been thought for the Dragon series, today there are new releases with better defined details. This set also offers PE parts and several components to convert a T-34/85 1944 model into a powerful Egyptian T-122.

Lastly, I used the RB Model D-30 gun (much better than the one provided by Accurate Armour). RB Model is one of the few manufacturers that offer a so complicated gun and muzzle brake getting an excellent result.


Hull assembly

At this stage of construction nearly half of the Dragon kit parts would be left aside for a future project and obviously the original turret would not be used.
The assembly was straightforward, the hull was built without difficulties except for the rear hatch which needed some attention (TLC) in order to get it aligned.
