|Kit: Tamiya's T-55A
This vignette is a recreation of a North Korean T-55A during the late-1980s.
The kit has a good texture for the turret surface, but I made a new surface
with plastic putty (I personally think Tamiya's turret cast marks are
a bit weak). Also, details of hatches and thin pipes extending from external
fuel tanks were added, together with some damage over the fenders and
fuel tanks. For the figures, I mixed Dragon's Russian tankers set and
Tamiya's WW2 Russian infantry set, and did some conversion work on them.
Since North Korean uniforms are based on WW2 Soviet ones, these were highly
suitable. (Serang Kim is Editor in Chief of NEO Magazine, Korea)
