Plant 183 – Autumn 1944:

This first kit takes us to the Eastern Front in the fall of 1944, where the T-34/85, a potent upgrade to the iconic T-34, was rolling off the production lines of Plant 183. FlyHawk’s rendition promises to capture this specific variant in all its glory, with:

  • Accurate details: Expect crisp molding, faithfully representing the T-34/85’s distinctive welded seams, hatches, and even the texture of cast armor.
  • Optional late-war features: This kit might include options for the rounded командирская башенка (commander’s cupola) and the late-war exhaust configuration, allowing you to tailor your model to the specific timeframe.
  • Weathering potential: FlyHawk’s kits are renowned for their superb base for weathering. Imagine capturing the grime and battle scars of a T-34/85 that’s seen its share of action.

Chinese People’s Volunteer Army:

The second kit transports us to the Korean War, where the T-34/85 served as the backbone of the Chinese People’s Volunteer Army (CPVA) tank forces. This unique variant offers a distinct modeling experience with:

  • CPVA markings and insignia: FlyHawk’s decals will undoubtedly include the iconic red star and Chinese characters, allowing you to recreate these historically significant tanks.
  • Possible unique features: Did the CPVA T-34/85s have any special modifications? We’ll have to wait and see if FlyHawk has incorporated these details, adding to the kit’s appeal.
  • A chance to stand out: While countless modelers depict Soviet T-34/85s, building a CPVA version lets you showcase a lesser-known but crucial aspect of this tank’s history.

FlyHawk’s Hallmark of Quality:

Both kits undoubtedly share the qualities that have made FlyHawk a favorite among armor modelers:

  • High-quality resin and plastic parts: Crisp details, minimal cleanup, and excellent fit are what FlyHawk is known for.
  • Accuracy research: Rest assured, these kits will reflect the latest historical and technical knowledge about the T-34/85 variants they represent.
  • Options for experienced modelers: Photo-etched parts and other details will likely be present, catering to those who want to take their T-34/85 to the next level.

Double the T-34/85 Fun:

Whether you’re a seasoned T-34 aficionado or simply drawn to the unique appeal of these two specific variants, FlyHawk’s new 1/72 scale kits offer a wealth of possibilities. Plant 183’s autumnal battles or the CPVA’s Korean War stand, both await to be brought to life on your workbench.
