This static display model of the Lost Turrets T29 was built using the 1/35 Takom kit of the T29E3. Many minor modifications have been made to the kit to bring it into line with the in-game vehicle. The vehicle is shown with the 105mm T5E1 gun. This tank has been finished in one of the World of Tanks Winter scheme using Vallejo acrylic paints. It is absolutely awesome.

Dimensions: 13" x 6" x 4.5".

The Heavy Tank T29 (and it's sister, the Heavy Tank T34) were American heavy tanks projects started in March 1944 to counter the appearance of the German Tiger II heavy tank. The T26E3 medium tank (which entered service as the M26 Pershing), weighed around 45 short tons, but was not considered heavily enough armed or armored to counter the Tiger II, which weighed closer to 69 t (76 short tons). The T29 was not ready in time for the war in Europe, but it did provide post-war engineers with opportunities for applying engineering concepts to artillery and automotive components.

While 6 T29's were built, there are a few remain, There are a couple at Fort Benning Georgia as well as one at the Detroit Arsenal in Warren Michigan.

In WOT, the fully upgraded T29 represents the T29E3. The T29 is considered by many to be the best tier for tier tank in game. It is still my favorite go to tank.

For shipping reasons the T29 requires some minor assembly upon receipt. The gun barrel needs to be inserted into the mantle and the turret fitted to the hull. No glue is required
