SLB HEAVY INDUSTRIES

After a long absence, forced by my lap top used to post photos crapping out, here are a few pictures of SLB HEAVY INDUSTRIES recent projects. More pictures will be posted in the appropriate sections soon.

First up is a Sturmtiger, the white square on the side is battle damage from being displayed at the Great State Fair of Texas this year.




Next up is a BRMD-2 Late that was also at the Texas State Fair.




This is an AMB-S scratch built from the old 1991 Dragon BMP-1.

 


Now for something different.

This is a Siberian Logging Tractor made from the 1/35 Dragon Scud B Maz-543 TEL



A couple hovertanks.

From the Revel 1/35 SPz Puma



Scratch built hull, turret from Trumpeter 1/35 E-100



Bandai’s 1/100 Tactical Pod Glaug, a.k.a. BattleTech Marauder



On the production floor:  Leopard 2A4 in Turkish colors in Syria.

Very nice builds, Steve! Very nice, indeed! 8) 8)

What did you use for the track-base for the Siberian log hauler? ???

Currently building a Trumpeter BDRM-2 (Late), which I assume is the same kit, hope I can get mine up to the same standard. :smiley:

Seriously, I can't pick a favourite, they're all awesome! :icon_alabanza:

WOW - those are some builds. :smiley:
Was BRMD-2 used to play army in back yard or wherever (see its dirty) ?
Paint wear on Siberian Logging Tractor is ultra realistic.

Some awesome models! The BRMD-2 looks well worn and muddy!
The MAZ Siberian logger is amazing - The MAZ 537 has been transformed into so many real world vehicles, that this looks like a very believable conversion.

The track base is all scratch built, inspired by a picture I found on the net of a wargame minature. The tracks are from the Trumpeter E-100 with the wheels/bogies cut in half to make enough to go all the way around. The treads actually only go an inch and a half into the covers on top.

Hello,
I like the logging tractor
So do I!  :D

To be honest, all of them are realistic. I just fancy the logging tractor a little bit more.  It looks like escaped from the Thunderbirds serie  ;)

Great builds and even greater imagination!

I just love the Siberian Logging Tractor!
Definitely my favorite, even though the hover-tanks fall shortly behind :)

Could you share with us some more pictures from different angles? Thanks!

Yes, I will post more pictures of all soon. I have to post from work, so it goes slower as I work around work.
