Conquer the battlefield with the 1/48 T-55 Russian Medium Tank from Tamiya

About the T-55

The T-55 was born in an era of increasing West-East Cold War tension, as an upgrade to the existing T-54. This low-profile design with hemispherical turret was extremely well suited to mass production, and even featured rudimentary protection from chemical weapons.

It was also produced under license in Czechoslovakia and Poland, and when added with the T-54 its production run is said to have run to the astonishing number of 100,000 units. Warsaw Pact countries and Arab client states were among those who operated the T-55, meaning it saw significant action in the Middle East and even the Gulf War.

About the Model

  • This is a 1/48 scale plastic model assembly kit. Length: 190mm, width: 69mm.
  • The low form of the tank with hemispherical turret and 100mm gun is accurately captured.
  • Weld lines and cast turret texture authentically recreated.
  • Detailed model includes depiction of DShK-M anti-air machine gun.
  • Assembly type tracks feature one-piece straight sections.
  • Includes metal weights to give the model a realistically heavy feel.
  • Comes with a commander torso figure and one marking option.

As with all our Tamiya model kits, instructions are clear and concise, in order to allow the modeller to build a detailed model with relative ease.

These assembly kits require paint and modelling glue sold separately.
