About the T-34 kit:
One problem with early T-34 tanks was the inadequate protection given to commanders in their turrets. They had to open their large, unwieldy hatches and look over or around them in order to gain situational awareness. Obviously, this exposed them to a great deal of peril on the battlefield. The T-34/76 Mod. 1943 tank provided the commander with a cupola for the first time, offering the commander all-round vision from within the safety of his turret.
