Just wanted to share with you some work I've been doing, in this case a battered T-55, somewhere in middle east. This a really bad model by Lindberg that I received from a friend. Tried to make something good about it.
Comments and constructive criticism is always welcomed!

Looks awesome! Really love the beat-up look. Only thing of note would probably be the tracks on the left-side of the vehicle: some parts look off and look like they're floating.

A pretty decent result out of a pretty awful starting point. Well done.

Depending upon what the problems are with this kit, giving it to young person to try to learn about modeling may backfire, if they get too frustrated. Just my $0.02. Was

You did a fine job on this tank. These old dogs can be picked up cheaply at shows and on eBay and they often come in handy if you need to replace parts that are lost or inferior to those in the Lindberg kit.
