For the forthcoming Gnuston Heights game we'll need as many Syrian bridgelayers as we can muster. Even my AMX-13 'Poseur de Pont' and my as yet un-photographed Chieftain AVLB will be drafted in! I had the makings of a suitable bridge from this 2015 purchase but what hull could I use which might pass for a T-55? Then I remembered a nasty hard plastic Patton I had acquired in a box of crap. Some sawing, gluing and painting later and the horror above emerged by way of the steps below.
So how accurate a replica is it?
It has 5 roadwheels each side - like an MTU-55
It is painted green - like an MTU-55 (the camera flash makes it look a lot more garish then the reality)
It has a bridge on the roof - like an MTU-55.
So that's good enough for me!
