Model Detail Photo Monograph 9:
Volume 1 of this fine little booklet focuses on the lower/upper hull of
a Polish built T-55 that in nicely preserved and resides in the Polish
Army Museum in Warszawa.
Volume 2 should be out shortly and I believe it will focus
on the turret and interior detail of the vehicle.
Although the Polish T-55 version has some slight differences,
nonetheless this is an indispensable reference for building the T-55 in
1/35 as well as 1/72 scale, especially when it comes to detailing the
external fuel and lubricant tanks and other small details.
The original Polish Tech manual line drawings compliment each section
Clear close-up photos make these volumes ideal for modelers trying to
get some of the finer details just right.
Keeping to the same small-booklet, less-than-50-pages, landscape format,
this volume is packed with dozens of clear, crisp, close-up color photos.
Rossagraph has also added portions of original line drawings from a T-55
tech manual as a nice accompaniment to each section.
Needless to say that this first volume is an excellent and very affordable
photo reference for modeling the T-55 and the much anticipated Volume
2 of this should be a corker for modelers wanting to detail the turret
Rossgraph has done it again! Another superb volume from the Polish publisher
- highly recommended.
