M4 High Speed Tractor by enc86 M4 High Speed Tractor by enc86
my 1/35 M4 "Mighty Monster" High Speed Tractor. for some reason this thing kinda reminds me of the chariot from lost in space. with that outta the way, this thing is quite interesting and few are in existence today. this mighty beast would hull a howitzer but i haven't thought up mine will be hulling. wiki link for more info [link]

the kit is from hobby boss, and was my first time working on one of their kits. very very nice indeed but was quite challenging. overall i was quite impressed and will be buying more hobbyboss int the future.

Is that chain a single piece or an actual chain linked together. The model looks very good by the way which is not surprising seems like all your models are of high quality.
