Been

 

 

Been working on this one for a little while.  My initial thought was to make the conversion using the Trumpeter Ti-67 kit and the Tamiya T-62.  Unfortunately, the Trumpy kit is pretty bad and the dimensions for the external stowage added by the Israelis do not match up for the T-55 to T-62.  This has neccessitated a lot more scratchbuilding than I was initially expecting.

It has been fun though!

Hopefully I shouldn't have too much more to go before I can put a little paint on it.

It was pointed out on another forum that the "angle iron" I was using to secure the loader's side stowage bin to the hull was so thick as to be out of scale so... I corrected it with a pie pan!

Unfortunately, no!

I ended up getting moved from Wyoming by my company to Texas and after a few months to Louisiana!  I have not been able to get a shop set up since to work on models again but hopefully I will be able to get back in to these models soon.

Gee friggin' whiz that may be the oldest zombi thread brought up and answered I've seen here.

Scorn, hope you can get things squared away and post the finished product one day!

I was thinking the same. Cool to see Scorn, the OP, still around. Yes
