T34 Track Question
Posted by Papa Bear on Friday, December 21, 2018 6:58 AM

Hello all,

Does anyone know of a source to explain all about the different types of T34 tracks over the years? I really like the look of MasterClub tracks but they sell about eight versions of the T34 track - waffle type, wafer type, type 1 and type 2, etc. Most pictures I see appear to have the Early wafer type but it's hard to tell sometimes.

Even a good reference book with clear pics of the tank variations and their tracks would be great.

Thanks in advance.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Mike

 

 

Best regards,

Mike

A source to explain all the different types of tracks? I have not come across that yet. But just looking at the varieties between versions of T-34s in production at the same time from different areas, I’ll bet that it had something to do with the factories. Stalingrad produced T-34s had a distinctly different turret and other features. I’ve never paid much attention to their tracks, but I bet there is something different there too.

I have the Squadron, Concord, and Osprey books on the T-34 that are all well illustrated with photos. I’m gonna have to go back and look there now about tracks. I’ve only paid attention to early and late types, not sub versions. Right now, I am unaware and could not identify a wafer vs. waffle type track. Now Sherman tracks on the other hand...

Here is a website that has some information: https://www.cybermodeler.com/armor/t-34/t-34_all.shtml

And there is a modeling book: https://www.amazon.com/Modelling-T-34-76-Osprey/dp/1841769290

Thanks to all for the replies!

Cybermodeler is a great site, I've poked around there a bit.

 

And I did add the Osprey book to my shopping list plus another I found at Amazon. The T34, Mythical Weapon book looks awesome but a bit pricey at $137... 

Best regards,

Mike

Man, I loved Hogan's Heroes. No relation, I'm more of a "Boris the Dancing Bear" from the Bugs Bunny cartoon...

I got an error when I tried the link but it is on my work computer and we have some tight controls on subject matter. I'll try with my personal PC at home.
