Default T-34/76

I am new to the RC side of armor modeling and figured I would dive in deep with my second vehicle. (My 1st Sherman is still waiting for the Easy Eight Coversion.) Just started a conversion of a 1/16 Trumpeter T-34/76 to full DMD and battle unit capable. Got a smoking deal on a kit sitting around the hobby store I frequent and could not resist. I am planning to add the Pershing electronics as I figure out how to get them with out virtually buying the Pershing itself. Any suggestions as to reasonable sources besides the obvious Tamiya?

yes, it is good to buy the whole pershing kit. it is cheaper that way. the only thing you are going to keep is the t34 turret ring and rotation unit. then you have to throw all other junk. lots of work need to be done to the rear axle to drive the tracks. you do not need speakerbox, just the speaker out of the box. gun recoil need some works too.
good luck.

The T-34/76 I refer to is the trumpeter model with the interior and all the trimmings. I don't have any of the traverse or drive components and/ or electronics of any kind. I have decided to try and improve the model's suspension and use as much of the included details as possible. I realize I am going the long way, but if it was easy it wouldn't be worth it.

I would like to know what to expect adapting the Pershing drive train to the T34/76. Will the final drive even fit?

pershing gearbox will fit in, but the sprocket axle need meshing gear to output gear from the pershing gearbox. you can use Bandai pinion gear to do that. but strenghen the sproket axle really need some work.
the turret rotation ring and gear come with the rc version of t34/85.
good luck
