Default T-55 Enigma

I got this kit along with the Tunguska. Its a kit made by another ukranian company called ACE. They also do limited run kits. However their kits are much more cleanly molded. Also as they have to retool molds to reissue parts and other kits they incorporate improvements like finer details and open hatches. Their models are also 1/72 scale.

I painted this model up to represent the Enigma captured in the first gulf war. It has distinctive graffiti on the armor plates. The tank now resides in the Bovington tank museum in the UK and still wears this graffiti. One detail i messed up was installing the fuel tanks. I didnt know the tanks had been removed until after I built the model and found MORE reference photos. Pretty stupid considering i have seen this tank in person

Thanks Suki. Nice to see they put some catch pans under it now. When i was last there it was just a big oily patch spreading out from under it.

Actually at the time i only lived 3 hours from Bovington. About 70 miles north of london. It was a nice day trip with the wife. She even got into things there. She was amazed by the size of the King tiger and Jagdtiger there. She also found it interesting how the short squat nature of the Tiger 1 made it seem larger than the King tiger though the king tiger was a much larger vehicle.

Thanks Dieter. Some good google searches can get you all the info you need. As far as T-55s go this variant is pretty unique and ONLY used by iraq. If you need any info assistance send me a message.
