T-55 Advice

Hi all.....After a long time away from the bench, I've decided to have a bash at a build that's outside my usual (WWI-II only) field, to whit, I'd like to do this:





I've got the Revell T-55 & ACE Type 59 in the stash, the Trumpeter T-55 with the mine-roller is on the way. I have OKB wheels & track, but I understand I'm going to need T-72 track for this one (OKB again at a guess), I also have a turned barrel but apparently that will need a thermal sleeve.

Recommendations for the best parts to use in this build would be very helpful (I've heard bad things about Revell's turret for instance), I'm obviously going to have to do some scratch-building for this one, but any recommendations for useful aftermarket to reduce the workload would also be very welcome.

All the best
Andy S.
