Our new project for the month of August 2020 – 1/56 Soviet T-54 Main Battle Tank. Our plan is to cover all 5 variants of the T-54 MBT, including T-54-1, T-54-2, T-54-3, T-54A, and T-54B.At this point, our focus is to have all 3D drawings for these variants finished, then we will decide what to release as a plastic kit.Here are some 3D drawings of the T-54-1 and T-54-2 MBT. Enjoy!For those who wanted some background history… The T-54 and T-55 tanks are a series of Soviet main battle tanks introduced in the years following WW2. The first T-54 prototype was completed at by the end of 1945. Initial production ramp up was settled for 1947 but was halted and curtailed as many problems were uncovered the following year; the T-34-85 still accounted for 88% of production through the 1950s. The T-54 eventually became the main tank for armoured units of the Soviet Army, armies of the Warsaw Pact countries, and many others. T-54s and T-55s have been involved in many of the world’s armed conflicts since the later part of the 20th century.The T-54/55 series eventually became the most-produced tank in military history. Estimated production numbers for the series range from 86,000 to 100,000. They were replaced by the T-62, T-64, T-72, T-80 and T-90 tanks in the Soviet and Russian armies, but remain in use by up to 50 other armies worldwide, some having received sophisticated retrofitting.During the Cold War, Soviet tanks never directly faced their NATO adversaries in combat in Europe. However, the T-54/55’s first appearance in the West around the period of the 1950s (then the beginning of the Cold War) spurred the United Kingdom to develop a new tank gun, the Royal Ordnance L7, and the United States to develop the M60 Patton.Source: Wikipedia T-54/T-55 (edited)
