While looking for stuff about the Roden tractor I found this:



Makes a nice extra for the Scammell trucks they've released. They are also working on these:





I'm not sure about release dates as the website seems a bit vague, but it's surely nice to finally see more construction vehicles in kit form in 1/35 scale.
Love the

Well I for one will have to get the Ch 60 , maybe both , as the Russian one is based on the Colt , later to become Caterpillar.
Now I'm conversant with those tracks :smiling4:

Do you know if they are supposed to be WW 2, as they look a bit modern to me , esp the guy on the left doing a Tommy Cooper !

As in most Russian WWII propaganda pictures, heavily staged. In the top two - the tankies are wearing medals - probably having just been presented with them. The centre one - note the fashionable shoes on the two 'peasants' !

:smiling2: Your right there the Dave's.
Suppose very few Russians if any had access to camera, unlike the Germans who appeared to be a bunch of Happy Snappers .There are far more pictures of Russian armour taken by Germans esp when they captured so much .

That’s because the German army actively encouraged soldiers to take pictures and send them home, as a way to keep up morale on the home front I suppose. Whereas in Russia I doubt many people even owned a camera, or in the British army, where soldiers were forbidden from taking photographs.

Very nice to see this, obviously based on the famous photo. I am a sucker for the carrier, as anybody who saw my blogs of conversions on 'the other site' will know, so even though I a focussing on figures one of these may well find its way into my stash.

Almost as bad as those guys coming up with anniversary paint schemes on aircraft and digital camo patterns! You'd think they'd spare a thought for us poor guys who have to try and replicate them!
