Fabian D. Nice review. I assume you got one of the first batches of the kit where the correct hull was put in the box by the importer or the shop. The later versions (like the one I received last week) don't include the wrong hull anymore.

Dirk Fries Thank you ! I got mine in the middle in december from Modellbau König. As far as I know is Modellbau König the Importer for Takom in Germany. So I'd guess that I should have a rather "fresh" one. But maybe this kit was on the bottom of a big pile and all the new kits were put on top Anyway, it's a great kit I think it's a great move from Takom to correct the lower hull

Fabian D. Just had a look at the kit again. Apparently I've got only the A0/2015 hull, but have a sticker on the box "Retooled lower hull" Well...
I also bought it at MBK, so getting the replacement shouldn't really be a problem.
->Advice to anyone with just one hull in the box, check if you got the correct one.
Dan M Actually this raises an interesting question. If I'm not mistaken the ZSU-57-2 (another Takom kit) is supposed to use the hull of T-54. Does that kit have the correct hull or it also uses the T-55 one. I see there are some differences on the hull bottom between Takom and Trumpeter. Wondering which one is correct.
