Still Confused About Some T-72 Turrets

Hi All,

I should first state that I want to build an East German ,NVA vehicle

I have the Tamiya 1/35 kit which I'm advised represents the T-72M √úbergangsversion produced by Poland in small numbers for the NVA, basically a T-72M turret on a T-72M1 hull?. Now am I correct in thinking that even for this version the turret is not the correct shape and is too rounded and really needs the sides extended and a sharper "bend" between the front armour and the sides? Not the best explanation but I hope people will understand. Are there any walkarounds on the internet that are definitely the T-72M √úbergangsversion?

I also have the JS Models T-72M1 turret and what I cant figure out is how this differs from the T-72M turret (other than the modifications mentioned above)?

Also if I put the JS Turret on the Tamiya kit will I have a T-72M1 as used by NVA?

I'll post this on the German Language Forum also when I get my mum to translate it for me.

Thanks for any replies.
