T-55A(Cz) was created by IAN
Tamiya's superb T-55A (Czech built), finished with Star Decals for an Afghan Northern Alliance vehicle in 2001.




















Only extras are the grills which are from the Eduard kit-specific set. Camo is Tamiya Olive Green and RAF Cockpit Green. Weathering is as you would expect - pin washes and dot filters with W & N oils, rust is red/orange/yellow and raw umber oils stippled with Vietnam Earth and Yellow Ochre pigments. Dust finish is Migs' Beach Sand mixed with AK European Dust, applied very sparingly on the hull & turret and thicker around the running gear and tracks. Still need paint and fix the tow cables and yes I know the tracks on the left side are a little 'off' in the photos I've already repaired that !

Thanks for taking the time to look and / or comment. Best from the 'Naki

I usually don't look at many military models as it is not where my interests lie. Having seen this I must say that the weathering is fantastic. Great work.

I'm reluctant to feed the ego but this is blood nice work mate, sheesh you must be modelling 10 hours a day lately with all that you've put out.
Love the weathering, it just looks right.

The weathering just sits nicely in proportion to the model. That looks great.

Very nice Ian.

Update In Stash:
Lots of 1/35 Armor mainly WWII German and a few Modern British/American pieces, 1/32 Aircraft and 1/48 Aircraft. Aircraft chosen to replicate RNZAF and RAAF types through the years. Some RAF & USAF types exist also.
