Just a tractor ? ~1/56
« on: December 09, 2017, 03:18:28 pm »
Hello,

Before any photos I have to make an introduction as some on  anti - communist jokes (very popular in easter Europe) are hardly understandable for rest of the world.
In '70 and '80 Radio Yerevan was a fictional news station , which delivered unreliable "hot" news. They were simply making fun of communist propaganda. There were tons of black humour and sarcasm. One of my favourite jokes is:

Radio Yerevan informs: a group of chinese communists attacked soviet tractor, working on a field. Tractor defended itself by firing from few rocket cannons and flew-away toward Moscow.
Ministry of Agriculture warns chinese commrades: if this incident will occur again , we will send harvesters on fields.

This joke became title for my small vignette. Resin mech is from "Raging Heroes" company. Base is styrofoam covered with soil. Plow is scratchbuild as well as soviet border marker. Whole scene is weathered with AMMO and AK fluids. I used paints from Mr-Hobby,Tamiya and Vallejo range. As a "base for a base" I used photo-frame with scanned "Tribune of the people" newspaper (main pro-communist newspaper in Poland before 1989). I inserted fake news (in this case tractor-joke) with Microsoft Paint as a description/title.

Hope you'll like it :)

Nice piece of work.

Another ill conceived, poorly thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

Nicely done!  :thumbsup:

I was watching someone build the 1/24th Revell snap-fit Porche tractor today and wondering what else you could do with it.

Porsche made tractors? That sounds about as daft as Lamborghini doing so.  ;D ;D

Oh, they did...........  :banghead:
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)
