I will be watching your topic closely, I thought about building this tank the second I saw the film...

Things aren't going brilliantly right now.....Found the camera battery, but the charger eludes me.  Similarly I've found most of the bits that I need but I can't actually buy them.  Meh!  :wall:

Hope you manage to get sorted, somehow, soon! :thumbsup:

Kind regards,

I've looked high & low for the bloody thing.  :unsure:

 

I don't understand why companies don't just take PayPal.....There's no way I'm trusting my credit card details to some random server in the Ukraine or Russia, I don't give a monkey's what little logos you use, if it's not PayPal, I'm not interested!  :angrysoapbox.sml:

Hi Sarge

 

That's bad news! Daft thought but could you get one of those prepaid cards meant for holidays and order it on that?

 

I had one a couple of years ago for a holiday and loaded money onto it. You can only spend what's on it but it was a Visa card so widely accepted.

 

Bit of a faf but might solve your problem?

 

All the best

Ha.....Betcha thought I'd given up on this one dincha?  :hmmm:

 

Me too!  :mellow:

 

But no.....Revell have recently released a 1/72 T-55AM and I have just ordered one, which I believe (confirmation from T-55 experten very welcome) finally gives me most (if not all) of the parts that I will need to build this tank (and an awful lot of spares left over, not less than three complete T-55s worth by my current reckoning).  :mental:

 

Hoping the kit will come with the right tracks (T-72 type), but doubting it frankly, so I'll probably be ordering a Revell T-72 before too long!  :rolleyes:

Good news that this isn't abandoned as I was looking forward to seeing what you do with it.

 

All the best

T-55AM turned up, I now definitely have a couple of parts from my list  (the gun tube & skirts) but they're both far too pristine for my subject, so guess what.....  :mental:

 

As for the rest of the bits, well I'm just not familiar enough with T-55s to be confident, I'm checking my references by eyeballing, but TBH, I'm not altogether sure what I'm looking at.  I now have a huge pile of parts (three assorted T-55s & a Type 59, plus numerous aftermarket bits) and I would sure welcome some guidance as to which one's I'd be best to use!  :rolleyes:

 

In the meantime I'll have a crack at the mine-roller.  ;)

Sorry Sarge - way outside my knowledge base.

Still find it hard to believe the lack of books on T55s given the production numbers!!

Well I figure if I start with the mine-roller & the wheels I can't go too far wrong.....Proceeding as far as the tracks might be ill advised though!   :unsure:
