A great review Andras, and confirmation these MiniArt delights are somewhat out of my skill set...for now....

Thank you

You and me both... But you know you never improve if you don't challenge yourself (at least this is what I keep saying to myself when I glue a 2mm PE strap to my fingers for the tenth time...)

Dunno want you mean. My eyes are not always twitching like that. (Bad joke. The model seems to be amazing; and judging by the others I've built it's absolutely doable. I challenge anyone to identify where the tiny PE straps are missing from on the T-54-1... I built. The thing is: if it's too much, you can always leave it off.)

I selected the easy route with the other T-tanks from Miniart in my stash, maybe possibly I should think about considering doing one with the interior. Need to think about all the little plastic pieces first ... / Robin

They must now have a complete interior set for every variation of the T54/55 class. Impressive. Wouldn't know where to start but for those looking for something like this a great find.

Not even close. They've still got a ways to go. They've basically only gotten all the major variants' first production model done so far. There are several later models of T-55 & T-55A they already have planned, there are upgraded T-54A and T-54B that could also be done. They're just getting started and since the T-54/55/62 series is my favorite tank I'm really over the moon with these kits.

...and there are all those foreign produced variants and modifications... Essentially there is no amount of T-55 that would cover them all.
