I was wondering if the Skif T55 dozer is sooooooo bad that I would upset with it.I know the tracks are terrible as with all Skif tanks. I don't care if it is not the perfect shape,just that is build-able.

I built the original Skif T-55 when it first came out. It actually built fairly well.  But, it takes a ton of work. I will never understand the way they represented the gun mantlet. They did not try to model the canvas cover, nor did they attempt to model the inner mantlet that you never see because of the canvas cover. Instead they give you a big, solid, angular block that you are supposed to carve into some strange, abstract, shape. The kit is also grossly underscale. At least the overall dimensions. It was a good 1/4" or more smaller than other T-55 kits in length and width.
