Phantastic work Gino!
Clean build, great weathering and a really nice presentation of the finished model.
Well done!

I understand this is an old thread.
Great job on the T-55. It looks sweet. Looks like it comes together rather well and is very detailed.
Question regarding the kit. Is there any inaccuracies you notice on the Miniart T-55 exterior?
I did an Tamiya T-55 in Rhodesian colours years ago. Was an excellent kit but need some enhancements.
Looking at doing another T-55 soon (next year is soon for me). Was wondering what I would have to do to get it up to standard. As Ive kept clean of Russian vehicles for some time. Im a bit rusty.

Cheers,

Gibbo,
From what I can tell, it is pretty accurate, but I am not a T-55 expert. I would highly recommend it for a future build. I didn't really do any updating or cerrections on the kit at all. The detail is all there from the box.
