Modelling the T-55 Main Battle Tank by Nicola Cortese

Book Description

The T-55 tank first appeared in 1958, and its lineage stretches back to the wartime T-34 and the T-44. It served with many armed forces, including the Warsaw Pact countries, Afghanistan, Angola, Cambodia, China, Croatia, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, North Korea, Poland, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Vietnam, and Yugoslavia, and has seen action most recently in the two Gulf Wars. This title focuses on the basics of assembly and finishing, together with more advanced modelling projects using conversion kits and extensive scratchbuilding, covering both 1/35- and 1/72-scale versions.
