T-34/76 Model 1943. 41st Guards Tank Brigade, Kursk 1943. This represents one of the first T34's with the hexagonal turret. Steel wheels were used to reduce rubber usage as much as possible. Originally all 5 road wheels were steel but the ride was so jarring that even the Russian army wouldn't force it's tankmen to use them in combat, so the front and rear wheelswere given rubber tires to soften the ride.

Trumpeter 1:16 kit was built straight OOB
