This is my next project. I saw a diorama representing the T-54 entering the Presidential Palace grounds in Saigon on April 30, 1975; and it was a very good-looking diorama, but the T-54 and parts of the diorama were not accurate. So, I decided to try my hand at it. These are a few advanced WIP pics of Tamiya's T-55A which I tried to backdate as a T-54. It was basically an out of the box build, except for the Aber aluminum barrel, Trumpeter individual track links and Star NVA Tank decals. As always, ALL comments and critiques are greatly appreciated.

Aah, a new diorama, great! Superb paintjob on the tank. Excellent weathering, the tank´s surface and tracks really have a 'metal' look, well done! Looking forward to see more WIP pictures soon.

That tank is excellent.  It looks heavy.  Great paint and weathering.

Hello all, well I've added a forging log and slats of wood to the back of the tank and gave it some more weathering with pastels. I still have more weathering to do and some other things to add. But I got started on the crew. They are from Paracel Miniatures, they're made in Vietnam in resin. These miniatures are the 'NVA tank crew at rest'. They are well made. Enjoy the pics.
