Hello, fellow modelers.
For a very long time, the model T-55A from SKIFa, which was a donor for my other works, was lying there. And in order not to throw it away, I decided to Refine it to this level.
Historical information: in the period from the fifties to the seventies of the USSR, a large number of these tanks were produced and sold to other countries. At that time, these tanks were progressive and in demand. But time passed and the equipment became hopelessly outdated, and the issue of upgrading an outdated fleet of tanks became acute. And such work was carried out in a number of countries, and positive results were obtained.
So I decided to make a contribution to the modernization of outdated equipment in my own way.
Absolutely everything is reworked and supplemented with details from different sets, I think there is a certain logic in the construction of the model, but there is also nonsense.
To build a model I did not have enough tracks and replica rinks, in this matter I was helped by Sergey (nicknamed Mongol) from Orekhovo-Zuyev, for which I thank him very MUCH!
Also used spare parts that were previously sent by Gennady Zavrazhnev and Yevgeny Kislov, thank you guys very much!
So, the upgraded T-55A according to my version.
I invite you to view it.
