Nice.  If you've access to a resin printer I made the German ammo rack for the KV2.

Lol, thanks.  I built one, but it fell off during pictures.  Got a great deal on Verlinden ammo cases for it

And a helmet!  Obviously got to the parts bin first.  Note the colour of 29s driver's hatch...

Or, working in a similar industry the goalposts moved.

Commissar:
Get tank 29 out now!  Take bits you need off number 126.

Ten mins later...Commissar again:
Right good work on 29 lads, does 126 still start?  Good...  We need you in 126 now!  I know that hatches are on 29 but we've painted a slogan on it instead!

For the last one I'm going to pop the engine deck off again but this one has had a significan 'inconvenience' as my Italian colleagues would describe it.  Therefore it'll get a slab of applique armour welded over the front glacis.  Something like this but more crude.  Probably cut from another T34

By the way, I read that at the time of the fighting close to the Stalingrad Tractor Plant, freshly made tanks with crews of factory workers went into battle from the shops. The tanks were not painted. It was only bare armor with technological markings.
Well, the militia from the factory workers will also be appropriate on the table.

How many T-34 kits had to die to supply all those hulls?

Thanks, the bare metal tanks are legendary... But there seems to be little consensus on if they really existed in bare metal. 

My interpretation is they were damaged tanks returned to fight. 

I've some factory militia in progress too :) wargames Atlantic partisans with various weapon swaps.  Couldn't use a quarter of them as they have obvious zip up jackets which doesn't really fit!

For reference each hull costs about 50p in resin and takes 10 hours
