Three large tanks on the sides make a full set. T-34s never had four...
Are the exhaust pipes smooth? They should have seams.
The towing loop for rear low is a feature, peculiar for factory 112 vehicles.

Thanks for the correction on the number of fuel tanks. I was so sure that there were meant to be four, but I bowe my head in shame and stand corrected.
And no, there are no weld seems on the exhaust pipes.

We never stop learning something new, do we?
The chassis-based SU-85 and SU-100, as well as heavy JS family tanks and SPGs had four tanks...
The exhausts should have seams, but they're not weld seams. The actual pipe was made from two halves held together by rolling:

And here is the towing pintle at the rear:

hmmm....the large tanks are without weld seam...the small ones are missing detail as well. mountings for large tanks also looks simplified.

For large tanks I recommend PanzerArt items. I used them on my builds. Great stuff. There is also a review on Armorama from me.

Paul and Roman: Thanks a lot for pointing these things out to me. I've sent in these corrections to Darren, and he'll fix it for me.
