Darren Baker takes a look at the second T-35 from Hobby Boss in 1/35th scale and this one represnts a vehicle from the start of World War 2.

No T-35's had 37mm guns. All had 45mm.

The information I have is that the 45mm was replaced with 37mm or the other way round, either way I believe these are the 37mm guns however I am happy to be corrected.

The only Russian 37mm was an AAA gun.

A detailed model with what looks like good molding!

Quoted Text

The only Russian 37mm was an AAA gun.



Greg, not quiet correct. According to Steven Zaloga in Spanish Civil War Tanks: The Proving Ground for Blitzkrieg, Stalin's hordes did start out with a 3.7cm ATG: the 37mm anti-tank gun model 1930 (1-K). It was a licensed Rheinmetal 37mm and considered inadequate for the Soviets; they upscaled it to the 19-K 45mm ATG. Some model 1930s were encountered during Barbarossa. Perhaps some were put in the T-35?

Disregarding any issues with what weapon she carried i think it looks like a very interesting subject and a tank I've never seen before. My interest is officially piqued!

Would love to see a photo of a T-35 with a 37, to this date, I have not ever scene one. If you can find one, please post it. The Russians made thousands and thousands of the 45mm. It armed the bulk of the BT and T-26 fleets, not to mention the BA fleet.

Can it be safe to say that the Hobby Boss molding of the T-28 and T-35 are NOT copycat and/or re-hashed ICM or ALANGER molds/kits of the same vehicles??
