Wow is that a fantastic model, Frank!

Your weathering is simply masterful!

I like what you said about the paint seeming to be the only thing holding them together. My dad had a '68 Plymouth like that.

A most excellent Stalinetz indeed and it will make the General Secretary proud!

Nicely done, Frank! :smiley: :smiley:


Cobbled together from bits of different variants to keep her running on the kolkhoz & painted yellow to hide the blending of pieces (& the worst of the rust). ;)

Thanks guys. My vague backstory was that a country like Kyrgyzstan obtained the license to build tractors based on the Stalinetz S-100 (which was a design stolen copied from Caterpillar), for internal use as well as export (the foreign currency would help with their crippling lack of vowels). Maybe instead of Stalinetz it would be Kyrgyztractor or Slavtractor Company.

I clearly didn't weather my tractor enough:

Due to their crippling vowel (& "c") shortage, wouldn't that be Kyrgyztraktyr? ???
