Hello mates!

Here is my T-55 C Mine-clearing vehicle in United Nations colours. The model presents used vehicle as seen nowadays in Slovakian army/tank outdoor museum few years after active use. There were 5 or 6 vehicles in all-white painting in Eritrea operations until year 2004.

The model itself is based on Tamiya's T-55 and Mig Productions KMT-7 minerollers, completed with Friulmodel tracks.

The vehicle is painted with Tamiya and Vallejo acrylics, and finished with AK-weathering stuff.

All critics and comments are welcome!

Sincerely,

Jari Hemilä

Always great to see something fresh. The rust is very convincing.
