Miniart 1/35 T-34/85 Plant 112 Spring 1944 (35379)

This review is dedicated to Miniart 1/35 T-34/85 Plant 112 Spring 1944 (35379). Kit comes as yet another version of the famous Soviet tank in popular scale. Note that today's version is without interior, and some modelers will be happy to find this out. Such package will help them to focus on external details. Of course, there are still some internals included, which you will see further in this article. Packaging is typical for Miniart, so all frames are sealed into one plastic bag. Let's open it and take a closer look together.
By the way, here you can read review with Omnibus in the same scale.

Watch this video-review where I show all parts even closer.

We are going to start with one of the biggest frames which carries hull panels. All hatches are separate, what might come handy for some diorama ideas.

Next we see plastic track links. This is definitely a good thing to have in 1/35 scale model. :)

Yes, there are suspension parts included. Shock absorbers will be important to install as they will be visible through lower hull openings.

Fuel tanks should be glued out of several parts and combined with PE straps. This might take some time to assemble, but final result would be worth it.

Roadwheels should be glued out of two halves. There are guiding pins which will help with overall alignment. Miniart doesn't supply masks, so be ready to find your own circular template.

More hull parts can be found on the next frame. Overall fitment is nice, and I didn't have any issues during my build.

Here we can see more of interior parts for the lower hull section and main gun. Main barrel is molded as one-piece part, and such element would look more convincing on the model.

As it was mentioned before, all hatches are separate here, but be sure to find suitable figurines. Otherwise you will be showing the empty interior inside the model. :)

Turret is separated into several panels. Again, overall fitment was good, and texture details are also decent for this scale.

Kit features two clear frames which are packed into the same plastic bag. Molding quality looks great, but there are no masks included.

Miniart also supplies unpainted PE fret in a special envelope. You will also fine decals sheet there. All those symbols should be enough for four marking options.

Assembly manual is typical for this brand. I show all pages in the video-review.

New tank should be already available for purchase. In my opinion it is a great choice for modelers who would like to get a nice copy of the Soviet tank in popular scale. Some modelers would be glad to hear that there is no interior included, because this will mean no headache about showing all those internal features. Overall quality of the kit is top-notch, and it won't be an overestimation to call it one of the best on the market at the moment. :)
