Osprey continues to find some amazing talent to turn out such a prolific series as their Osprey Modelling line. In this installment, we have four very impressive build-ups of 1/35 T-34/76 subjects.

The table of contents outline the areas covered:

  • T-34/76, Factory 112, 1942
  • T-34/76 Model 1943 'Sniper'
  • STZ T-34/76, Italian Army
  • German T-34/76 747(r)-3, Western Front, 1944
  • Bibliography and Further Reading
  • Kits and accessories

As with each of the previous titles in this series, the authors walk you through the conversions and provide a nice "how-to" to achieve some of the great effects that they are adding to their models. The only thing I wish they'd covered is building the Trumpeter 1/16 kits of the T-34/76, but the techniques shown in this title can be used with the larger kits as well. The rust effects on the German T-34 were so nice that I almost needed a tetanus shot to look at it!
