Miniart just made the earth move for us – with their new D7 Tractor - new pics of the completed model

Miniart have done some good choosing with their latest products – the recent Panzer III early models and the European tram really must have annoyed the hell out of some of their competitors! Now they hit again with something we have been after for a long time – the versatile U.S.  Tractor  D7 w/Towing Winch kit in 1/35th scale
Latest kit in progress from MiniArt

BOX: 385x240x70 mm
kit  contains 615  parts.
Workable track links
Photo etch included
The new kit of MiniArt’s #35174 U.S. Tractor D7 with towing winch strapped to the back of it comes as a welcome surprise. It is a constant on the battlefields, airfields and roads of world war two and after. This tractor is just that – not a bulldozer but a tractor for pulling and pushing. No doubt the bladed versions of this vehicle will come later – but as we read in a recent review of the Ampersand Publishing book on the D7 – it IS a Tractor!
The kit Box contains one model of the famous U.S. Tractor in injection moulded plastic with everything in the box to make your little D7. There are markings for two vehicles as well as some photo etched parts and some workable tracks.

·   Up-to-date technology using sliding moulds.
