Good luck building!
That is very kind, Many THANKS
As we say in Russia: “Na zdorov’ye!” (To your health!). Build for your own pleasure.
Sorry if the link to the video did not open for you, then here is an alternative link to [YouTube].(ПЛАВАЮЩИЙ ТАНК Т-37А / Tank T-37A - YouTube)
It worked GREAT. Gave me lots of new input. The only slightly disappointing aspect was that the T-37 in the video didn’t have the float pontoons. NOT a biggie at all. Just the size comparison to a man is AWESOME. MANY THANKS AGAIN
If you search using the Cyrillic search string for “танк Т-37А”, you will get much more results.
And some of my personal photos:
They are from this museum:
Many more thanks. Your pictures are a HUGE help.
Thank you again
A most intriguing project Whitney, what inspired you to take this challenge on? Curious about the “jump start” reference? Awesome help from Yuri too, he’s a very rare and precious resource for all things Soviet/Russian. I have a lot of respect for his wealth of references and willingness to help us as individuals with a shared interest.
Also curious about your last images – is this going to be a rusting hulk or just severely weathered?
So, as to jump starting, the build lay dormant for a couple of years, As for the rust, I just like the tried and true, baking soda and white glue to give texture. In the end, the T-37 will be knocked out somewhere in the Stalingrad /Volga basin.
Finally, I really like to create builds that are “one offs”. I did Lynx, and a Berge-Panther, and of course the 8.cm mortar and crew are still in the works, much like the Sdkfz 263 Series 4, all in 1/25th just because I got heavily burnt out in 1/35th
Thank you for you inquiry.
