The Jom Kippur Veteran- Egyptian T-54 1973 (1/72)
I got the idea from Vallejo's "Red Steel" publication.
A egyptian tank after the Jom Kippur war in1973.
Some T-54/55 were recovered and repaired with different parts from this series.
They also were repainted and used in training maneuvers in short time after the war.
I don't work on any specific vehicle, it is simply meant to represent any one of these units.
The idea is to start with a 3tonal sand, brown, green camo, overpaint this with the new sand camo, showing in a well worn look.
I used a gun barrel form Aber, a PE detail set from Part, other resin road wheels from Armory and miniatures from Paracel Miniatures.
