It' still a case of sewing a silk purse to a sow's ear. I am baffled by Legend Productions' choice to offer an expensive upgrade kit for the obsolete Tamiya model. What's the point of upgrading a thirty year old kit when better kits are available from other makers? For less money, one can get a Dragon T-34 with everything you need in the box. Dragon will almost certainly release this midwar variant within the next year, and it will presumably come with the same photoetch and indie link Magic Tracks as their other recent T-34 kits. And if you absolutely must have this variant today, it makes more sense to mate a Dragon T-34 with a resin aftermarket turret. It will be more accurate, more detailed, and might even be cheaper. The Tamiya kit is fine for someone who just wants an inexpensive, easy build that pretty much looks like a T-34, but adding these extras defeats the purpose, if economy and simplicity is the objective.
