Plastic Soldier Company T34/85 and T34/76 (1943)

Cue "Great Patriotic War Music"  as the T34/85 rill onto centre-stage (see below):

The robust "Panzer Killer" with pointing tank commander (see below)

And slightly over sized barrel? (see below):

Fully "accessorised" with stowage and fuel tanks (see below):

A nice feature being the interchangeable 85mm and 76mm turrets akin to the old Airfix model, which effectively gives you two models for the price of one (see below):  

Like the real T34 the utilitarian design adopted by the Plastic Soldier Company (PSC) of just a few parts makes a quick build that pays tribute to this little war winner. A recommended purchase, three for the price of one with other manufacturers offering many more parts but no discernible improvement in details. I need to get cracking

Great models matey, I did a set of these a while back and thought the same about the gun, still good kits

I have no complaints with the 76mm gun but the 85mm seems too much the drain pipe (100mm, 122mm)

In comparison with the old Airfix, the HaT and the Fujimi kits I have. Having said that an Eastern Express kit is in the same "crazy" dimension

Enough talking I should get it painted Soviet Tank Green and get it on the table

Hmmm they do look a tad overscale.

Great looking kits however. Nice one Geordie.

Strange as PSC soldiers don't seem to be on the large side
