The Red Army’s #1 workhorse of the Great Patriotic War, this is an iconic tank. I recently built its big brother the T-34/85, and now have added the earlier model to my Soviet garage. The 85mm tank was a Warlord model, while this is a Rubicon kit.
I’m a big fan of the Rubicon plastic kits, and their mid- and late-war Stuart kit fills a gap in my Allied collection. The same vehicle can be used as a gun-armed Stuart for Polish 1st Armoured in ’44-’45 and as a Recce Stuart for NZ 2nd Division in Italy ’43-’45.
