Gulf Wars…1/48 T-55 Iraqi Army


After the first aircraft model, also my dad´s first little armour model is completed.
Tamiya´s new T-55 kit, a bit spares and only one marking option provided but in the typical quality.

Built oob, painted with AK Real Colour paints, Arabic numeral decals from Star Decals to display the model as an Iraqi tank as it appeared during the 1st Gulf War and also in the 2nd one in Kuwait. Used a marking option from the 1/35 Italeri T-55 as template.
