Russian naval 10-ton tow tractor 1/48

September 29, 2020 · in Uncategorized · · 9 · 1.5K

Not exactly an airplane, but airplane related. I usually build airplanes and I started building and planned to make some sort of diorama with it. But the problem was, I couldn't find any appropriate vehicle to place it next to it. Digging through web, I found good photos of tow tractor russians use on Admiral Kuznetsov carrier. So I've decided to build one, or better say 3D model one. Model was 3D printed by ma friend with resin printer, and during that process we dicided that we should make model available for other modellers too. So we decided to make some PE parts, decals and instructions as well. I think it turned out pretty nice. Now I just have to finish that Su-33 and the base.

Drop me a message if you are interested.
Hope you like it.
