This resin kits is of the standard US Tow Tractor used on airfields from the beginning of WWII to the 1950's. This is such a nice addition to any airfield diorama. The kit represents the factory basic version as delivered these were customized a lot so you can modify it to suit any reference material you have. The kit is very easy to build as long as you watch the instruction details carefully.

In the box is:

  • 35 resin parts
  • 1 plastic rod
  • 1 instruction booklet

All the parts are all very well details with no defects. Once the parts are removed from the base parts they are extremely well molded with no flash or bubbles.


The build is very easy and is made up of 12 steps. I had no issues with the build, very little filling was required. It when together beautifully. There is also an optional rear armor plate that can be installed.


This is excellent kit and was a lot of fun to build. The fit of the parts is very good. The only thing I would recommend is the addition of a decal sheet.

Thanks go to VideaoAviation for providing this kit to review and IPMS USA for allowing me to review it for them.
