The conversion set permits you to upgrade the Tamiya T-55 into a Modern Iraqi T-55 Enigma MBT.  Please note the photos in this article include 3 different sets.  This set does not include the large main gun barrel and it also doesn't include some of the storage bins which can be seen on the left hand side of the tank in the photos below.

  • VBS0156 is the main gun barrel set

  • PEA140 is the stowage bin set

You will be required to fold the photoetch in this set, but if you have one of the Hold & Fold photo etch benders from The Small Shop, then this will be an easy process.    They have a variety of benders for sharp corners as well as rounded corners and in many different sizes.

Voyager Model has a talent for adding massive amounts of large and small details to their models.  Adding one of their extensive detail sets to your model will take it to  a whole new level of detail.

This detail set is available directly from Lucky Model.com
