Rusted relic from WW2 Russia
« on: November 16, 2017, 03:46:25 am »
Among some other equipment found at the base where the submersible tracked vehicle was found, a vehicle from the second world war was sat awaiting it's fate, rusting up and looking sorry for itself, a tracked tractor was found and instead of destroying it, got fired up and eventually moved under it's own power on to a transporter trailer and taken back to a Honduras engineers base to be worked on and brought back to museum quality. The kit is the Trumpeter one in 1/72nd scale, and when I saw it I just had to have one.

Well done. The rust on the tracks is particularly convincing.

Great weathering!  Would look even better staged on some dirt or diorama.

What does it for me is the places where the rust is worn off when it was driven.  As it would be in reality.
Very good.
