T-55 balkan

another T-55 by me... I'm planing on whole brigade.. "just in case" as old people here like to say
still not sure if it's going to be Yugo SMB, SMB + camo or Cro/Bih nato-ish 4 tone

so far..
front mud guards cut and one at rear
some damage on wheels
gun elevated
and then i discovered that i'm out of super glue for non plastic stuff





next..
cables, fuel lines and other thin stuff
rubber side skirts and extra protection (that's why 2 boxes on turret are mounted)

duck-tape-fitting, nothing is glued..
just testing to see how things lay down, i think i abused turret rubber too much with heat so it looks too soft, will redo some parts,
maybe remove piece or two to expose some area?


front rubber could go higher towards the driver...


and i'm not sure about rear one... it's easier to grab it by it's ass and carry it around when it's not covered..

Very, very nice work on a nice tank...

Will follow this... also because I saw a lot of these in real life both during and after the wars in Croatia and BiH... quite a lot, particularly after the wars, were wrecks, but I also counted many operational ones in UN inspections.

do you have any pictures J? =)

this turret armor is giving me a headache guys... it just won't listen... twisting and turning but i just can make it perfect enough to just sit on turret so that it can be removable and not glued on...
will try with some softer material... copper maybe?
