T-50, Mirage Hobby

Hello,

Well, new project is a T-50 with Extra armor. I am going to use Mirage Hobby´s kit. As AM comes CMK Gun + Resin Mantlet and Eduard PE set. Original mold belong to Techmod and pretty old, therefore need too much cleaning etc. Kit has two option, a captured and modificated T-50 by Finnish army, or a Russian. My T-50 will be Russian with a what if slogan at turret. Hmm, actually, complete Model will be "what if"



As usually, first steps: Hull and wheels..



For AA, some of parts from hull must trim.



I must say, track-links are Horror!! And unfortunately, there is no alternative in market..

Also, all links has two parts..





And the "Magic tracks" :P



Sprockets are also full with problems.. There are no guide markings and need extreme cleanning..



CMK Mantlet is good but resin carrier is pretty big.



Dremel job!!





I saw off resin MG too.. I am going replace it with a custom made metal one.



Finally mantlet is ready for gun..



And a comparison between original gun!!

Well, nice job so far, but let me ask: does A.A. mean in this case Anti-Air? just because it doesn't look like an AA specialized vehicle...

Well done Özgür... I'd say you are indeed a brave man for tackling that kit! I will follow your build with interest.

Although I like building Russian AFVs, this seems to be a kit I should steer away from...

Thanks for the comments.

@Panther F: Yes, resin mantlet looks better but its also not accurate.The bolts are little bit big than originals.

@ Arthur, its not an anti-aircraft vehicle. It was a Pioneer for T-34. AA means here "Added Armor".

@Petarted : Thanks

@Emre : Thanks Emre, unfortunately its the only Kit for T-50.. If you want a T-50 in your showcase, you must build this one
