1/35 Trumpeter ChTZ S-65 Tractor with Cab 07 Sep 2015 11:09 #1



Brief Background
WW2 Soviet Tractor - this version was a development of the earlier S-60 version. The s-65 being the most numerous with 37,656 being produced before the ChTZ factory switched to tank production in 1941.

The Kit

- 200 plastic parts (light grey plastic)
- 234 track parts (light brown plastic)
- 5 clear plastic parts
- 8 photo etch parts on 1 sheet
- 1 decal sheet
- Instruction book of 12 pages.

An interesting subject that lends itself to many exciting diorama ideas for WW2 armor modelers, including people who want to 'walk on the wild-side' and modify the kit to depict a wood burning version, or various other configurations.
The kits parts are modeled very crisply with the detail popping out perfectly for painting and highlighting.
Bring on the scratches and Rust!
See the pictures below for a look inside.....

Looks far easier than the Mirror Models tractor. Of course no engine makes a difference. Thanks Ian. :thumbsup
I told you photobucket sucks...

I have that one in my stash, actually resold the "cabless" version to buy that one, to me it looks so much better!

Cheers,

Christophe
