Hi chaps!, just a few pics of the latest project on my bench!, another Tamiya kit going through the change, this time to a Czech built type used by the Yugoslav army. not going to bother altering the rear fenders as the boxes and spare links will cover those!Still a long way to go yet, will try to remember to post more pics as i progress!











Cheers for now
Andy

Nice work, especially on the rear deck.
Looking forward to more!

Good to see another T-55 from you, Andy.
The first pictures already look very promising! Will you use decals from Bison's Balkan set perhaps?
Btw, what ever happened to the Syrian T-54? I saw the progress shots but seem to have missed a post somewhere showing the finished model...

Hi again, thanks for the comments, just a small update guy`s! .. i planned to fit the ammo boxes on the rear fuel drum brackets,[ most Balkans Tanks seem to have this feature] but as the Verlinden ones are a very poor representation and after searching thier website i was unable to find the Modelpoint offering!, so decided to make my own, granted i do not have any specific measurements so i "guestimated" the size from pics i have sourced from the net.. just got to add the hinges and latches, the latter of which i will scrape off some T-55 boxes i have in the spares box.
Theo, no the T-54 Syrian is still waiting some paint, just need the wheels back from my good friend Sam!!..








Thanks again
Andy

Hi Andy,

Nice job on the ammo boxes. I'm gonna have to build one of these soon.

Nice job Andy! I also have that tamiya 55 on my vbench waiting to get my inspiration back. Planning to do it on balkans, perhaps Croatian. Yours look great! Keep posting!

Cheers Mikko
