Love this Tamiya kit. Keeping it mostly OOB, with a few drilled out lights. Replaced turret bars with wires to give it a more natural look.
If you are looking for a nice looking and easy to put together model, you could do much worse than this one. Most of my models take many weeks, this might be put together in 2 days - did tracks and wheels yesterday in about 2 hours, almost completed the construction in maybe 3 hours today.

Watching this, not least because I have an idea to try something involving a 48-scale tank (and most probably this particular one)

Looks like a really nice kit, not resisting the attempts to get build and thus leaving ample time & opportunity to focus on making it really nice! ;)

Thanks! Of course, first pieces are now consumed by the carpet monster, so now I'm stuck on deciding whether to call it battle damage, or to scratch build replacements...

As I finished construction today, the little T-55 received a layer of black primer and various rust tones from MRP. It might currently look like an autumn prop, it's only a temporary stage.

Good on You, what did you use for plumbing?
18. December 2020, 12:02
Carlos Cisneros
Thanks Joshua. I used mainly brass and copper wire for the fuel tank plumbing, along with a small section of aluminum rod for the thicker area between the two rear fuel tanks.

Joshua Strong
Where and what size wire is it and bought?
18. December 2020, 16:06
Carlos Cisneros
I think that it's K&B products. I want to say that the brass is .010" size, but it may be .020". The aluminum rod is a bit bigger gauge size. I buy the stuff at whatever shops carry it. Train hobby shops, RC shops, Hobby Lobby, and the old school neighborhood hardware store (not Home Depot or Lowe's).
The copper wire I strip and salvage from electronics and appliances that go kaput and are being tossed into the garbage.
