The turret, also not finished. I changed the barrel because the one of the kit for the T-34 ist to small, I think...

Here are the first pictures of my 1:76 Airfix T-34/85m.

The T-34/85m  (Mitteler Panzer) was used by the NVA (Nationale Volksarmee) in the GDR (East Germany, DDR).

At the beginning of the 1960s this Tanks were upgraded. Easy to identify at the barrels at the rear and a big box at the rear on the turret.

I had to do several modifications at the model.

First I drilled wholes into the driving wheels. I assembled the hull and added barrles, tools, boxes and handholds. Some parts I have still to add.

The pea green parts are Airfix, other colors are from my spare box.

dabhand, it depents on the year the vehicle is you want to paint.

In 1941 the Afrika Korps used the common Panzergrau from Europe, then RAL 7008 (khakigrey)

From March 1942 onwards RAL 8020 and RAL 7027 was used (also RAL 8000) Thats brown shades.

Best you ask the internet about the german RAL color system.

I know Testors has some good matching colors in their range (afrikabraun).

Hope this helps?!
