Nice Kit. The details looks good. What about some tools on the chasis or where there usualy none?

This is a 3 sprue kit - 2 new one together with a retooled existing T-34 sprue.  We do not have spare space to put anything else on the two new sprues.  However, we will be doing a Soviet Stowage Kit in 2016, please wait.

Great looking vehicle , a good combination of detail to satisfy both the gamer and the modeler .  To answer Yaquir's question , most books I have show very few  vehicle tools on Russian tanks . The odd pick and shovel on JS tanks and SPGs and a pair of shovels on early T-34s . The usual thing found on almost all Russian tanks was a Cross Cut Saw , usually in a V shaped holder on the tank's side . Early KVs had the saw on the  fender and later KVs had it in one of the fender bins .

Looks good.

I cannot remember if they had one of these at Duxford?

Love the open roof hatches on the SU-85 . Now where can I find a decent 85mm gun breech to add to the interior when I get one ?

This is our painted samples using our SU-SPG TS1 plastic sprues. The kit comes with a common chassis and two front hulls options enabling you to build either a SU-85 tank destroyer or a SU-122 assault gun.
Other options include open hatches, elevated guns, and fuel cans. No figures are included.









































Enjoy!

Yes, these look very nice indeed.  Rubicon's lineup of Soviet armour is impressive (especially when you include the later model T-34/76, which I think is the best of the T-34 kits).  I like Kent's paint jobs on the two SU test models as well.

I want to clarify one point.  It might be the photos distorting the actual shape of the model, but the mantlet on the SU-122 doesn't seem to slope back enough.  It seems to bulge forward a little bit too much.  Here's a photo of a (captured) SU-122 - the mantlet seems to slope more (although again it might just be the angle of the photo).  Could we see a profile shot of the model?
