    1. Model Subject: T-100
    2. Scale : 1:25
    3. Publisher and model number: Modelik 01/04
    4. Designer: Dmitri Procenko and Dmitri Hotkin
    5. Number of paper sheets: 15,5 x A3 , number of instructions pages : 2,5 x A3

    This is a big tank , so it's a big model. It doesn't look too complicated to build it doesn't have many instructions but it is very detailed. It has pieces even for the bolts , for the engine and so on. Only the tracks pieces are printed on 5 1/2 pages. On the Modelik's site it is evaluated as a complicated model , I can tell you for sure that for the building of this model , a lot of time and huge volume of work is needed.

    I'm looking forward to following this build. I had a good look at the kit when I was translating the instructions and it looks like a bit of a challenge to me.

    I will start to build it latter this year , so you have to be a little pacient until then.

    I bought this kit too. When I was looking though it, there appears to be an option for "simple" treads or complex treads with individual links. Still looks challenging to build overall though. Bring it on! :twisted:

    The same designers did Modelik's BT-2 and BT-5 tanks. The tracks on the BT are a real pain to put together - and that's a simple track design - I'd guess the T-100 tracks could be a real showstopper.

    I know that the building of the tracks it is the most boring part, so I will start the construction with them. Anyway I'm going to have a busy summer.

    Enjoy your summer Dragos, and good luck building this in the fall. I just received this kit yesterday and the tracks are quite something...

    I hate repetitive work. Here's a suggestion, build one track; make several RTV molds and cast the tracks in Celluclay (paper maiche). It's still paper! You can still have a life, too.

    I am already experimenting with turning Celluclay prop spinners and I am happy to say the experiment is proceeding quite well. Once I get it perfected, I'll release it to the community.

    working on the framework for this kit i can say for certain that there are a few "areas of concern" around the front end of the tank as far as fit goes
