Trumpeter 1/35 Polish PT-76 Light Tank
Posted by modelcrazy on Thursday, January 25, 2018 11:25 PM

I completed the Trumpeter 1/35 Polish PT-76 Light Tank.

This was a nice kit with a little bit of PE. I got this kit from a toy store that was clearing out their plastics and I scored it for $8.00. My only complaint with the kit is the instructions. They missed a couple parts placement and a little research is needed to find out what you missed. Other than that, it went together well with very few seems. The turret also does not lock down but since I glued mine in place that wasn't a problem.

Since the tank was amphibious, I'm showing it fording a muddy river. I couldn't get the jet spray to look right so I left them off. So now it's fording not swimming Wink

Armor and water. Almost as good as ships and water LOL.

I was lucky enough to see the whole WIP in the Russian GB.  This dio is just superb.  You have a gift when it comes to water dioramas.  Glad you posted here so other folks could see it.

Dwayne or Dman or just D.  All comments are welcome on my builds.
