Tractor CASE VAI

Thunder Model is a new producer and the first kit is the CASE VAI.
This is really a very nice kit with crisp details and perfect fitting. Useful PEs are in the box too.
A project for a weekend. :) :) :)

As usual Mike, very nice! Do you recommend the kit?

Mike Kryza
Thx a lot mates for the nice comments.
@Holly - This is a very nice Kit. No problems, no putty, perfect fitting of the parts...
Only the chemical smell of the tires irritates a little bit. :)

Ich baue den Case-Traktor auch gerade und kann nur bestätigen, was Mike schreibt: Perfekte Passgenauigkeit, schöne Details und hervorragend umgesetzter Spritzguss - man sehe sich nur mal die Lüftungsschlitze an der Motorhaube an, da muss absolut nichts nachgearbeitet werden
.

Mike Kryza
Thx Gorbygould. - I'm now looking forward to their upcoming kit "Bergepanzer 38(t).
Hi Stefan - haben Deine Reifen auch dermaßen ausgegast??
19. January 2017, 16:50
Stefan Fraundorfer
Ja, die stinken richtig.

Gibt es keine Resinreifen im Aftermarket?

Lex Jassies
That's indeed a good looking tractor! And very nicely built.
20. January 2017, 08:25

21. January 2017, 21:45

Perfect as usual! Amazing build.

Well done Mike!

M.Julian Marles
Case closed lol! :D Looks very impressive indeed. I have the loader version and was pleasantly surprised by the quality and not ridicilous part count.
22. January 2017, 05:02
Zsolt Czegle
Great work!!
22. January 2017, 08:16
Mike Kryza
Thx a lot, mates.
@Moritz - Hau rein!!
@Julian - Could be possible building the loader version too (very interesting), but at the moment I'm still looking forward to the upcoming "Bergehetzer 38(t) early and late" kits. ;) :)

Mike Grant
Awesome
22. January 2017, 15:12
Thomas Mayer
This build only misses the smell of diesel (or gasoline?)
22. January 2017, 15:13
Thomas Mayer
@ Frank: auja! Bitte!!
22. January 2017, 15:14
Mike Kryza
Thx a lot again mates! :)
@Frankie - Den schaffst du in zwei Tagen... Und das Airbrushen lernst du diesmal auch noch... ;) :)
@Thomas - There is enough chemical smell from the tires. Diesel would have no chance!!!
22. January 2017, 17:52
Christian Ristits
Sehr schöne Arbeit, und mal was anderes! LG Christian

Cool display base Sir. I like the idea of cut wooden log. Gave me a couple of ideas.
24. January 2017, 08:25
Alistair Graham
Excellent small dio.
24. January 2017, 08:34
Rui S
Brilliant little model. Nice paint job & photos.
Congratulations Mike.
It's a petty that they don't make some German ones? Not easy to find some WW II Era German tractors...
24. January 2017, 12:45
Mike Kryza
Thanks a lot Chris, Alistair and Rui.
@Rui - yes, it's a pity - there were no special army tractors during WWII. (Or??) :)
24. January 2017, 17:24
Rui S
For me, it could be a farmer tractor, we know that it would work on pulling some Me, Fw or even a Stuka ;)
24. January 2017, 19:34
24. January 2017, 19:40
Holger Kranich
What about the good ol Lanz Bulldog?
24. January 2017, 19:49
Rui S
Just the resin expensive ones???
24. January 2017, 19:53
Mike Kryza
I have the LANZ kit in resin. Horrible!!!
24. January 2017, 19:54
Mike Kryza
Thx a lot Kim.
24. January 2017, 19:55
Rui S
Thanks for the heads-up, Mike
24. January 2017, 20:00
Mike Kryza
No problem Rui :)

I like to lean something new every day and today it's the Lanz Bulldog. I haven't heard of it before, so I Googled it – what an amazing looking vehicle! I didn't know that Germans used steampunk tractors.
24. January 2017, 20:41
Moritz Fentzahn
The Hanomag SS100 was used on Airfields to pull planes. Not a tractor at all but better than nothing
24. January 2017, 20:42
Rui S
As usual the Germans use every little thing to their favour and to pull airplanes they use a lot of small captured tracked vehicles, like the Renault UE or the TKS
24. January 2017, 21:25
Arne Greve
@gorbygould
Yes, we Germans used all, we can found in the occupied territories.
The same have the Allied Forces done, too. ;-D
25. January 2017, 08:33
gorbygould
I didn't know about the TKS either. What a cute little baby tank!
25. January 2017, 10:28
Mike Kryza
The Hanomag pulled cannons too - like the 88 Flak. And the V2 with "Meillerwagen". You'll find a lot of pics on the web.
Btw on a railway event there were seven LANZ in one row, engines on. This was really an unforgettable noise... :)

Thank you Richard. My case with the front loader is still resting in my stash. Seems to be a little tricky.
