Hi all!
Take a look at this masterpiece of a Russian modeller Andrey Keshikov and you wouldn't regret, I think:

The model is in 1/72 scale and is based on Wespe resin kit with use of some Airfix parts and many scratchbuilt details. Working suspension, openable doors, sliding jib, etc.
Enjoy!

Having just looked at every photo with all the doors/lockers and other items that opened, moved or in some way articulated i was left wondering why this guy didnt have the windscreen wipers working too!!! Ah well,you cant have everything.
Just out of interest for those who like me love this model, Oxford diecast are producing it in RAF and ARMY paint schemes in 1.76 scale, its due on sale in the next month or two. Should have been available in April but its running late.

It's a beautiful model that makes me wonder why I ever thought that I could make models.

Isn't it a SV2S rather than a SV1?

Hi Gordon!
I have to admit I was always confused with those Scammell designations, the only thing I'm sure is that the tank transporter was TRMU30 (or respectively 20 for the earlier model). Apparently I must find Pat Ware's Warehouse Datafile No.3 on the subject!
I completely agree with you there are some Braille scale models that makes me think isn't it the right time to switch to knitting

Im really sorry to be the bearer of bad news given the beauty of this superb model BUT! Andrey has added "postwar" brake lights and what appear to be indicators on the rear fenders.These did not appear untill well into the 1950s..Certainly normal reflectors were carried during the war but i can find no photographic evidence to do the model with the lighting settup as shown.PLEASE somebody tell me im wrong!

Hi Dave!
Of course you're right. I told this chap about the rear lights, as well as for those clean and not convincing headlights. They look somewhat strange to me, for they lack difussion grid. Exactly the headlights makes me think this is postwar tractor. I told him also something else: wartime or postwar vehicle, it lacks the obligatory colour coding of the wheel nuts.
BTW, on those few wartime pictures of the tractor from the rear, factory ones including, I can't see any reflectors, just a single small (blackout?) light on the right (on the right side of the number plate place). This was confirmed by Scammell factory drawing No. 6T206, titled "G.A. of Scammell Gun Tractor Type Recovert Vehicle (Sliding Jib)"
Cheers!
