Default T34/85 finally finished

After almost one year I began this one, finally is ready, still I have to add something here and there. I used Rx-18, and the WSN gear boxes are great.

WSN gear boxes are great????? That is usually the first thing guys try to get rid of and up grade. I have the metal gear set in mine but it still really could use a real TU up grade.

But I'm not doing an upgrade at all and honestly I don't care about that. In the way I use the model the gearboxes are great, smooth and noiseless.
I spent US$99 in this model and took a RX18 from a HL, it runs fine it makes noise and my grandson is happy looking a nice T34 running, it’s all what I need after 50 years making models.
You talk about upgrades, well the 1/4 scale Cherokee I used to fly it had all the upgrades you can't imagine, and all perfectly represented in scale, so I know that part of the tale. In fact I think this should be my model number 1200 or 1300, I don’t remember, but now I try to keep things as simple as possible,
I 'm showing here the weathering to encourage others to build and improve the final aspect of the model. In my humble opinion a model is a whole thing. I use to see people very worried about the mechanical aspects of the R/C models, but then they even don't know how to paint a basic. So I show this kind of work to feature what can be done in several hours with some oils, pigments and a brush.

If all what you have to comment about my model is that, then....
