Russian ChTZ S-65 Tractor
This tractor was built in Russia in the late 1930s and many were pressed into military service towing artillery. The kit is made by Trumpeter in 1/35 scale, with an engine from LZ Models. The canopy was scratchbuilt, as a field modification. The model was painted with Tamiya acrylics and weathered using mostly oil paints and pigments.
