A new model to share, in this case, a Zvezda T35 Soviet heavy tank. I like this model because it is a rare subject, something different but interesting, with that interwar concept of the "Landship", but it also had the opportunity to enter combat, although not with the expected result.

The Zvezda kit is quite good in my opinion, more modern than those of other brands, and with a contained price, so I decided to choose it.

I do not remember major assembly problems, if the superstructure above, you have to sand in several points to make it fit, but nothing impossible with some skill.

It includes interior parts in the turrets, but a little scarce I think, and also, once assembled, the interior is practically not visible.

Having seen what I saw, I decided that I was not going to work on them, so I went directly to other sections. The included machine guns are very fragile, due to their size, I was still able to pierce some.

The running gear includes many parts, and they are also numerous as it is a longer vehicle than the others, but everything fits very well, and once the parts are ready, assembly is very fast.

 The tracks are also a very good point, as they include sections of variable length, which fit very well, and also include some "saggy", in this way, a difficult and tedious job is finished without much problem.

 The radius ring of the main turret is delicate too, so I mounted it later, even so there was some breakage.

 At first, I thought about making one side of the vehicle fully visible the running gear, without skirt, but seeing how it looked, I was not convinced, too monotonous and too long ...

As I did not want all the work to be lost from sight, I opted for each part of the running gear that was different, to remove a section of the skirt, and thus be able to see what is hidden behind them.
On the other side, full skirt.

 Trying another shade of green, which together with pastels, oils, pigments, graphite, give a used vehicle, although not excessively, with dust and some mud on the underside.

The decals are the ones included in the kit.

 I think one of these little giants is worth it in our showcases, easy to assemble, very low price and a very interesting final finish.

I include some photos, after the real model, (For information purposes only, all rights for their legitimate authors.)

Thanks as always for watch and comment.

Cheers and TC,
Francis.
