All welcome! Let me introduce my new blog - a test build up of T-54A from MiniArt. The model will soon be on sale



I started with the interior

Always nice to see your work Dmytro, well started! It is helpful to see how the kit goes together, especially with these wonderful Miniart interior kits.

It looks great, but why MiniArt have not corrected the gun barrel yet? Don't they see how bad it is? Or they don't care?... They seem to care about all the other details, but left the grossly misshaped barrel not corrected.

Great job as usual, but I have to agree with Pawel, the main gun looks oversized, but a few EUR metal one can solve the issue.

I am wondering if all main versions will be released without interior...?

And hope to hear about a T-72 soon! If anyone would release that I am sure Trumpeter, Meng and maybe even Takom would release... Pretty sure they have one hidden in the drawer waiting... Or at least I hope :-)

Cheers

Well done, Dmytro! I am impressed how fast you went thru this complicated build.
I am building now T-54-1 (kit #37014) and I can't quite understand why the engine is missing from this version, being the most significant technical advancement from T-34/75.
Congratulations on a well done job,
Gabriel
