This T-80 tank, I had a lot of difficulties until completion. I was using etched parts in earnest. It was built from September 2009 to April 2010.

RUSSIAN TANK T-80UD SKIF 1/35 BOX PACKAGEI bought a T-80 for overseas mail order about one year ago. It was a pretty good buy for only 20 EUR.

RUSSIAN TANK T-80UD SKIF 1/35 MAKINGI can’t understand the assembly instruction was written in all Russian. I was relieved that the 15-page instruction manual is a very detailed explanation.

RUSSIAN TANK T-80UD SKIF 1/35 MAKINGI’ll work hard to use Eduard’s photo-etched parts as much as possible. Without using it, the total quality of this kit is very low, I presume.

RUSSIAN TANK T-80UD SKIF 1/35 MAKINGThe part to which the photo-etched parts are assembled will work by priority. It is confusing to decide on the work process concurrently reading the instructions on the etched parts and the instructions on the kit. It would be better to take notes or mark the instruction directly so I complete the finished work.

RUSSIAN TANK T-80UD SKIF 1/35 MAKINGI managed to unite the parts and shape the box. Because various parts interfered, I ground and sliced many points to match each.

RUSSIAN TANK T-80UD SKIF 1/35 MAKINGI mistook the barrel’s degree; the ledge’s proper position is above, but I mistook it to place it horizontally. The barrel was broken to turn right above by force. After all, I removed everything and later constructed the new ledge with the plastic board.

RUSSIAN TANK T-80UD SKIF 1/35 MAKINGThe first impression that I completed assembling was that T-80 was smaller than the M1 Abrams. Height is also low; the livability of the crew might not have been good.

RUSSIAN TANK T-80UD SKIF 1/35 MAKINGA spare fuel tank and the pulling wire were changed effectively. I don’t recommend the included rubber wire ropes.

RUSSIAN TANK T-80UD SKIF 1/35 PAINTINGLight gray and red-brown, black camouflage is very strange looking. Maybe it’s suitable for battle in a city.

RUSSIAN TANK T-80UD SKIF 1/35 PAINTINGI dropped the turret to the floor, and parts broke when sweeping the room. Instant adhesive power is weak against impact shock. It’s lucky as minor trouble.
