"All T-34 tanks are green with white numbers," Aunt Millie claims. "They're boring!"

Available in North America from Casemate, MMP's T-34-85: Camouflage and Markings 1944-1945 showcases the legendary vehicle's warpaint in WWII's final phases.
Spanning 112 lavishly illustrated pages, author Przemyslaw Skulski kick-starts contents with introductory chapters on design & development and operational use. Coverage then turns especially meaty for modelers with camouflage and markings details for T-34-85s of six nations:
- Nazi Germany
Sections sport service overviews, photos, color comments, and, where applicable, unit notes. Beautiful color profiles by Thierry Vallet will certainly whet your project appetite. And Soviet coverage includes a spread of tactical markings.
Confused by wartime T-34-85 variant nuances? Contents conclude with handy "version details" from three different factories.
This aircraft modeler thoroughly enjoyed Skulski's slim survey. And Vallet's artwork prompted a search of his model stash for suitable T-34 kits. Even Aunt Millie liked it!
With thanks to Casemate for the review copy.
