The Hungarian manufacturer Balaton Modell offers a wonderful, brand new kit of the Eastern Germany "Weimar T174-2" wheel excavator in 1/35.

This is a small resin kit with photo etched parts and clear foil for the windows. The quality is very well so that the building is nearly like a "standard palstic kit".

I have glued the most parts together, added some wiring and pipework on the boom. Some further pipes will follow after the painting.

































Cheers,
MIcha
