I want to make the engine compartment for my T-55, but I need some info about the engine compartment itself, specially the bulkheads. Everything will work: Actual pics, comercial kits, scratchbuild models, etc. I used to have pics of a scratched T-54 engine compartment (I think it is the same or at least very similar) but lost them some time ago due to a virus problem. Thanks a lot in advance. Best regards.

Thank you for yor replies, better if there is the engine compartment without the engine, because someboy told me that Peruvian T-55s have a Caterpillar Diesel engine, however this is unconfirmed. I'll keep on my search. Best regards.

Already knew that site, in fact, It was me who provided the Peruvian T-55 pics, and have more in my personal collection, like this:



I already know the exterior, so I'll build the engine compartment for a change. Best regards.

Jose

I'm currently putting together a T55 engine comparment from CMK. I have some WIP images in my Blog in the Diorama section. There are some images there of the engine bay without the engine if it helps.

For example

Thanks a lot Jon, that's what I'm looking for. I also found some inspiring work in the IDF-in-scale forum. Best regards.
