Scratchbuilt handlebars for the Pegasus T34/85


The T34/85 made by Pegasus with some handlebars added. They are made from plastic bristles of a broom. These are easy to bend and gluable with any polystyrene modelling glue,at least the ones I got.
It took about 20 minutes to equip four tanks with these bars.

That is a simple and yet brilliant idea!
I was going to do handles on my StuG IIIs using brass wire, but broom bristles...so simple yet so perfect!

It looks great and i will try it at my T 34 as well. My wife was astonished as she saw me cutting off broom bristles...

Great to see that I can share my tips with other modellers. The handlebars of my JS2s were made with steelwire before I tried the bristles. That made a lot more work.
