The C7P Tractor was manufactured in Poland from 1935 based on the 7TP Chassis (which was a modified Vickers 6T built under license in Poland) and had many uses throughout its service they were used for towing large artillery units, as recovery vehicles and also used by railway engineer units. The kit itself went together without too many problems the biggest one being the rear plate that needed some reconstruction to look more like the actual vehicle and replacement individual link tracks by RPM for the one piece rubber band ones that were supplied, also the tools and some clasps were replaced from the spares box, the kit provides a full interior and transmission. I used Tamiya acrylics for the basecoat followed by acrylic craft paints to add chips and wear and tear once this was done I proceeded to weather the model using artists oil paints in the manner of many different coloured washes and filters with a final touch of pigments at the end to portray dust and dirt. My overall opinion of the kit is positive but donít expect a Tamiya fit or the detail of a Dragon kit it does take work and some things will need adding if you want that extra bit of detail but all in all it was a very enjoyable build of a rarely seen vehicle that was a nice change of pace for me.
