Missing parts from the Tamiya 1/48th scale T-55.


Recommended Posts

Hopefully, I'm in the right area this time. Tamiya's recent 1/48th offering of the T-55 is missing some prominent items, namely, the small positioning lights (there are something like 6 or 7). I've just completed one build, so it's a bit late for that one, but would definitely want to do another. If anyone would be willing to produce some of these, could they let me know please.

I'll see what I can find. I believe that on another site (not sure which one now), drawings exist for this item. Also Scanman Dan has made some.

Hello,

 

to scale down the shapeways items is not possible - it has to be redesigned for the smaller scale.

 

Regards

This kind of thing?

(albeit 3x smaller and without the cavity for the LEDs)

I was curious about these and contacted Luis - the person who makes the T55 positioning lights.  He created a version for 1/48 and I am expecting some in the post shortly - will report back here.

1/48th scale lights received.  Apologies for the poor focus on the photo but they look good to me (about the size of a pin head or smaller). His facebook page if you want to get in touch is https://www.facebook.com/HOLDEN8702/
