Hey everyone!
I just got more info on the T34 today, It will NOT have a torsion bar setup like I previously thought but a spring suspension (a nice one at that ). The setup is quite nice actually. I am not sure on the weight but I would guess around 15-17lbs as the Tiger 1 is about 17lbs.

Also, idk why this thread title wont change, I asked admin to change for me

I tell you what, these tanks are pretty nice. Especially the metal Sturmtiger. It has a really nice paintjob, quite stunning actually. I had to pack them up already to get ready for the show so I probably wont get any more video up until we come back from NY Toy Fair and the WRAM Show. I will however make sure to get some video of the shows for everyone.

I am not sure on the idler adjustment. I will get back to you on that one. As for more pictures, I don't have any I can release yet. Sometime in late March I will unveil everything. I will upload no less than 50 pictures from every angle with every detail I can.

NY Toy Fair is a vendor only show, but the WRAM show right after is not. Info can be found here http://www.wram.org/
If you can make it to either show please stop by and say hi, I will be tanking and flying quads at both shows, and hopefully I will be showing some new cars as well

I have to admit this tank really has my attention.
Really, the 1st non-Tamiya that I am seriously considering.
A few more questions.
I assume it has recoil?
If yes is it this one?
http://www.artistichobbies.com/prodd...prod=TAG120140

I would also be very interested in a non-painted one.

Thanks! Yes it does have barrel recoil. As for the exact recoil unit I wont know for sure until it gets here, but most likely yes. I'll see what I can do about trying to get some non painted ones. The first batch will not have any though for sure

How much will the T-34/85 cost? Just a ball park number so I know roughly how much to set aside to buy one as soon as they get here. Thanks, Rudy

That is a preproduction prototype, I should have a final production tank in late March if all goes well.

I heard by the end of August, but it's the 85 version instead.

A 76 version btw will be hard to use as a donor for my SU-100.

Hehe, it sure won't be your last either

Yes they are happening, just a few months late. We had to make a few last minute changes like adding the roller bearings to the turret and such. They are on the boat over though do not worry. Parts will be available at the same time.

Keep in touch with him, I'm pretty sure he is going to order a few actually.

You shall hear again Yes it is the 85 version, I tried to change the thread a ton of times and even asked a mod to change it but it never happened. Late August is the planned date. It is on its way now and will be quite an impressive monster, I look forward to the mods you guys do so well

Does that include the 360 turret rings? And how much for the ring kit?

Hmmm, I have an image of sprinters at a gate waiting for the starting pistol shot. I know I've been looking towards these.

I'm going to confess I'm not the T-34 expert that many here are so here are my questions. First are these T34 lowers
compatible from simply the mating areas with Trumpeter's uppers? If so which of the 4 T-34 variants that Trumpeter produces would these
lowers be appropriate for? The SU-100?

I'm using the Trump lower as a base for two uppers using the Trumpeter glacis overhang and read deck hinges as the connecting points. I can take exact measurements to see if they match if Erik can measure his sample (or wait until they hit the streets).

I don't even know if the WSN lower is the same as the static kit.
