Miniart has brought us the 1945 production T-34/85 with new turret features and six decal choices in this new boxing.

The Subject: T-34/85 MOD.1945. Plant 112
In January 1945, Plant No. 112 began adding new, larger cupolas and MDSh smoke discharge canisters to their T-34-85s. However, a report from December 1944 showed that they desired to add more. Among these changes was an improvement to turret ventilation by moving one of the two vents to the front of the turret. The rear vent would become the intake while the forward would be the outtake.
In late 1945, Plant No.112, the sole remaining producer of T-34s, created the Model 1946. It included a revised turret casting, the new twin-ventilator system, and an engine upgrade, from the V-2-34 to the V-2-34M, granting an additional 20 horsepower. Later production tanks also had a revised hull stowage, deleting one of the external fuel tanks.
The T-34-85 would end production in 1946 in the Soviet Union, but would be produced elsewhere for several more years. Strangely, most of those tanks would be produced to a tweaked version of the Model 1945, rather than the better Model 1946.
