Miniart T-44M

Hi again… another one that’s on my bench for sometime, after finishing the T-44 last February I started the T-44M.

500 Trillion parts from Miniart again… so far I’ve worked on the engine and the lower hull.
It’s a shame that most of the detailed interior won’t be seen, even with all the hatches opened you won’t see 85% of your interior’s work.

Nice work so far; I have this kit and will be following. I was thinking of displaying the model in an exploded view, not sure yet.

Thanks for the comments !
Last year I worked on the T-44, then I started this one, T-44 M .
I think it’s the best solution the exploded view ( I don’t have the skills for that… )
because there is a ton of work for the interior, very detailed everywhere, specially the turret, and mid / front hull. The engine is very good too.

The wheels have problems with the pins and the fixing on the hull.

I will start a Miniart Tiran 4 very soon… without an interior, this time.
But you are right these 1000 parts kits require some patience to say the least.

I have already built this kit. It is very nice, but a big warning: one has to check the alignment of the center plane of the road wheels to the center plane of the sprocket and front wheel before gluing all the wheels. My model required heavy corrections, else it would have been impossible to install the whole track because of a strong disalignment.

How many kits do you have going at one time? I’m getting dizzy just looking at them all. I am a one-kit-at-a-time guy. I like to do each one separately from start to finish. This many at once would drive me batty and I would never finish anything.

Well I was doing one kit at the time too.
But then with a few kits you hit some walls some times, either with tracks or canopy or some really bad kits.
Then I decided to work a little on some kit and then jump to another kit and work a little on that one too.
And using this method I managed to finish an average of 1 kit per month, last year.

So answering your question…
I’m working on around 25 kits and 3 on hold waiting for some AM bits.
