T-54/T-55 Campaign

How about one for the second half of this year into 2022? Start July 1 finish March 31 of next year, perhaps?

I was going to do a T-55 for the forgotten wars campaign but plan to switch to a T-54 from the Iran Iraq war. So I’ll have a T-55 to build. I might get another T-54. I definitely have my eyes on another T-55. I feel a bad habit forming.

I guess I should be a little more formal about requirements:

Proposed start: 1 July 2021
Proposed finish: 30 June 2022 (extended to allow folks to do miniart interior builds comfortably)

1. Any T-54/T-55/Type 59/Type 69, any scale, any timeframe.
2. Models can be stand-alone or in a diorama.
3. Enter as many as you like but each modeler will only get one ribbon (if we have ribbons by when it's over).
4. Models must be no more that 25% started at beginning of campaign and you must post at least one photo of where your kit is at the start of the campaign in the campaign thread.
5. At least two in progress shots of each model should be posted in the campaign thread and at least two finished shots in the campaign gallery.
6. Model cannot be one used in another campaign.
7. Oh yeah, have fun!

Here are folks who have expressed interest:

Hate to break it to you but Iran-Iraq war T-54 are like unicorns, they don’t exist.

Just kidding!! If I wasn’t just finishing my T-54 up I would join in but I think I need a few sub 200 part kits to get some sanity back after tackling one of those full interior kits

I’ll be following this though I love the idea. The T-54 is one of my favourite all time tanks

C’mon, Mead! You know you’re going to be itching for another one second half of this year! Maybe try a Takom for comparison purposes?

This is another one that falls into the maybe column for me depending on time, burnout and inclination. I do have a Takom T-55A which I could do but I would just have finished my MiniArt T-55 so not sure if I would want to do another T-55 so soon.

Maybe broaden the scope a bit? Like Soviet, Post WW2 - End of Cold war tanks. That would exclude anything from the fall of the USSR but would include the T-54/55’s as well as T-62’s, 64’s, T-72’s and early T-80’s but not T-90’s

McRunty, I take this suggestion seriously. If you get a couple of others to pile on to your request, I will amend the proposal.

(I am looking forward to the Zvezda T-62 that is supposed to come out this year:
Soviet Battle Tank T-62, Zvezda 3622 (2021))

I am in too… got some miniart T-54s and T-55s that could use some glue and paint on them. Starting with Tiran 4 Sharir early and late with interior. Also gonna build a Tamiya T-55 into a T-55AM2B Czechoslovakian Army with the Legend conversion and the correct fenders from Takom. Finally Egyptian T-54 and T-55 and maybe a Syrian one.

And hopefully by the end of the year Miniart will release their Tiran 5!!! :crossed_fingers: :crossed_fingers: :pray: :pray:
