My work in progress with the old dragon version of the T 34/85 model kit # 6203. Plastic is very fragile so from the start I broke a lot of parts. But later on its was all ok. Mine took a weekend to built.

Here the pictures, almost Out of Box, only a metal barrel was added and handles were replace with plastruct 0.8mm hex rod.

Well last night I remove the tracks and using tamiya thin glue I soften the plastic and put it back again to the kit. This was my result.

Now with Black and white acrylic paint I added highlights and details on areas with more visibility, handles, borders, bolts, etc. Here the results so far.

 

Once I add the base color in thin coats, all this details will show THROUGH the layers .
