Russian T-55 Medium Tank MI958

This tank kit is another fine example of a quality factory model. It had next to no flashing and the parts fit together with no problems.
It looks like I made some hand/foot brackets from my different size’s of modeling wire. They were made using 0.20″ and/or 0.30″ diameter stiff wire.

In one photo you can see my bottle of “SnJ-Aluminum Polishing Powder” with my brush. I have used this on many different models. You can see that I brushed the powder onto the plastic tank tracks. I have done this on most all of my tank models as in real life, the treads were really bare metal from running over the ground.

I painted the model with my Tamiya X-2 Gloss white paint, then misted on some Future and added the decals. I applied my dull coat.

Guess where my sandstone base came from? I just put some white glue on the bottom of the tank treads and set it down on the base and poured a little model snow hear and there…it’s done!

I have more armor models, but I’m going to start adding some more cars, then maybe back to airplane’s.

Thanks for taking time to look at some of my “armor” models!
Rodney!
