Star Decals - 1/35 Abkhaz-Georgian War 1992-93
War in the Caucsus pt 2, featuring T-55, T-55M, T-55A and T-55AM

35-C1288 1/35 Abkhaz-Georgian War 1992-93

Another interesting set of subjects from Star Decals, and especially handy for the kit now in the Hobby 2000 range, originally by Takom, featuring the distinctive cheek armour on the turret.

A - T-55M, Georgian National Guard. In a largely green colour, with a few random patches of sand on the frontal aspect of both hull and turret.
B - T-55AM Georgian National Guard. In an overall green colour.
C - T-55A, Georgian National Guard 1993. In a multi-colour camouflage, green base with sand and grey patches all over hull & turret.
D - T-55AM Abkhazian Separatists. In an overall green colour.
E - T-55AM, Georgian National Guard. In an overall green colour.
F - T-55M, Abkhazian Separatists, 15 January 1993. In an overall green colour.
X - T-55AM, Abkhazian Separatists January 1993. In an overall green colour but with camouflage created by a number of white bed sheets draped over parts of the tank (obscuring any turret number).

Offers something rather different for a finish to a model, and with the thought that there are some really excellent T-55 kits available on the market these days.

Thanks to Star Decals for the sample.
