I guess that says it all
Besides the Verlinden set I'm also looking for the SKIF tracks for the T-55, and the Tamiya T-55. (It's no problem if either of them is started.)
If you'd be interested in a trade I have an MRC AH-1T+ with the Verlinden set, the DML Soviet Motor Rifle Troops, and some other -and smaller- kits. Please send a PM.

EDIT:... and if someone should have some left-over Wurfrahmen 40 rockets and frames, I'm sure we could work out a deal...

Hey Andras,
Just a heads up, that set, to me, is not that great to work with. I am currently working on the destroyed T-62 set and the instructions are very vague in a lot of places. I managed to get it all together by trial and error. If you would of posted this a month ago, I would have loved to get rid of it and trade with you.

Just thought I would let you know.

I beleive CMK has sets specifically for the Tamiya T-55 and are much better the the Verlinden T-62 set.

Hi,
thank you for the answer. I know the Tamiya T-62A is a toy, the Verlinden set is far from perfect, but I just gotta have them (Too bad I haven't thought of this earlier...)

I already have the CMK interior and the Verlinden Engine Bay for the T-55; I'm just lacking the kit itself.

This was the first set:



Just to make sure, is this the set you are looking for?



It does make the old Tamiya look alot better even though it is a lot of work.

yes it is. Come to think of it it was your thread here, on armorama, right? I knew about this set, and was thinking about it a lot, but that thread but the bug in my ears so to speak

Yea it was, I was asking who has built it cause of the bad instructions.

The turret isn't really that bad if you have good reference pictures to locate where everything goes. It's the hull interior that is lacking. Since you have the CMK interior, that should be even better.
