These tanks production was very reduced, with only units built. The manufacture was largely manual and in small batches distributed along eight years , with just small differences between each other. Obviously the differences between them, give to the T a clear distant second position but in spite of this, is considered as a very interesting vehicle.
The ICM kit allows us to build two T versions, that only differ just for the kind of cannon mounted on the main turret. The models displayed at the Kubinka and Parola Museums are lightly different.
WWII Soviet Medium Tank
The kit represents an initial sample, without shield added and with cylindrical turrets. Like we do before starting to build the ICM kits, we should have to clean up the parts in order to remove the rests of oil from the mould injection. I use to submerge and shake each sprue in a bowl with warm water and detergent, rinsing then with clean water. Before pouring the water out, be sure that none part would have come off the sprue.
Since the moment the box is opened, we can see that each part seems to be very well detailed, and when starting with the mounting , we can check that fit is perfect all around.
My subject had the hull slightly twisted, but I could arrange it easily by adding to it a thick plastic bar as internal reinforcement, until I got it straight and square.
The main detail added is the star on the main turret surface.
In the real vehicle, this star was not a separate part; It came smelt engraved in the same roof mould. Big size photos are only available in our PDF format.

ICM 1/35 IT-28 WWII Soviet Bridgelayer Tank Kit First Look
This kit was designed not only for static but also for RC. The philosophy of the T is the same, I still believe that the T gearbox with its motors, would fit in the hull.
This wonderful Formula One was one of the few cars in modern F1 history which chassis and engine were the same brand.
Is this model really difficult? This is the key question for this model, and the answer is NO. If it were a Tamiya model, that is to say the same matrix but injected with Tamiya plastic and having the quality control of this huge Japanese company, I would say that this is one of the most delicious models I have ever built.
Unfortunately, it has some flaws, mainly due to its poor quality than to the work of the Protar craftsmen.
RED TANK MINIATURE
From that moment on, my affair with which, I think is the best scale car kit ever produced, began. And here my comment: probably, you have seen better detailed kits, or even superb models limited editions.
ICM 1/35 Scale KamAz 4310 Soviet "Six Wheel Army Truck"
Learning to paint figures step by step. Working with Alclad2 "natural metal finishes". Tamiya Honda CB Police. Building the Pocher Lamborghini Huracan, step by step, painting guide and tips. They compete with Amalgam and other brands with less expectations but to fit any budget and if you have some experience as model builder, the result will be acceptable and even excellent.
ICM - No. 35031 - 1:35
I sent an E-mail to him and he kindly sent me pictures and larger resolution scale drawings. Thanks to Tamiya we can have a model of it, both were the reasons why I decided to build it trying to get the most detailed model I could , taking advantage of the fact that as it was a mass production model, it would be possible for me to get a lot of references. Not only I built and superdetailed the model, but also made a slightly and own customized version, a real Panigale, as I would like to have.
The aim of this article, is to show with pictures and their comments the work accomplished as a guide and to give ideas of the details that can be added or showing in some cases how to do the different tasks. Figures made out of different plastic materials based on TV sci-fi series, sci-fi movies for instance GI Joe action figures and facts from real life such as the representation of different war scenarios.
This model was started before Tamiya announced their kit, and I have to admit that during this build I did consider scrapping it more than once.
In the end, I am very glad I did not. Despite the challenges and limitations of this kit, I am very happy and proud of the end result.
Anyway, there are no kits for this kind of modification except for one of the Acu-stion for the Tamiya XV kit , so it's not possible to get one. It was at a modelers meeting when he received a homage and the joke consisted of letting him know the arduous remodeling and restoration work he would have with this rusted Mustang.
ICM 1/35 T-28
I took advantage of my work and presented it in a contest that took place in Campinas city. My answer was I will have to make another rusted model for me.
This article aims at offering my view about this kit construction, adding some improvements I considered necessary so as to make a worthy scale model.
