Hey everyone!

I'm not really sure where this is all going, but I really felt the need to do something different. First let me show you what I've got to begin with:

The kit is from MK35 Editions and it's simply one of The Best resin kits that I have ever had the honor to work with. The casting is flawless, the fit is perfect, and the instructions are as clear as could be. The entire kit is about 45 parts so construction is pretty quick so there isn't a lot of SBS pics at this stage of the game -

A few of the completed tractor -

Ok, now with that out of the way the fun will really begin. I happened to stumble upon this image on a German forum. There wasn't any text with the photo which might indicate where it was taken or what it was used for except the image is tagged "army training". I realize that the tractor kit is not exactly the same tractor that is in the photo but trying to find 1/35 scale tractors is a little difficult, plus, I'm not sure that it matters that much anyway. So anyway, here is the image that I'll be basing the project upon:

Nice little tractor, I want to know more about the kit. What kind of tractor is it? Where was it used? How was AMPS and how come John didn't go? I meant to ask him this past Sat. but he was kind of busy.
