REVIEW: Academy 1/35 German T-34/76 747(r)

German T-34/76 747(r)
Academy Kit
1/35 Scale
Kit # 13502
Suggested Retail $49

The Soviet made T-34 was a massively produced tank that weighed 27 tons and could reach speeds up to 53 KM/h. The Germans captured them and re-used when they had the chance.

In September of 2000 one of these German T-34’s was pulled from the bottom of a lake near Johvi, Estonia using a Komatsu D375A-2 Dozer after 56 years of sitting a the bottom of the lake. Here is a link to the complete article. It is quite interesting to read.


Looking at the T-34 they recovered it looks like it fits the description of Number 3 in the Versions (Unidentified Unit East Front Karellia 1942/43) you can build. This would definitely makes sense since Estonia is southwest of Karellia and about 450 KM away.

In reviewing the kit, there are 4 options for you build.
