Plus Model has informed us about their latest release, a Hanomag RL-20 tractor in resin.
This tractor was produced from 1937 to 1942 and apart form the civil, agricultural, use, it was also in service with the Wehrmacht as leichter Radschlepper (o).

The kit consists of 70 resin parts, photoetched sheet and decals for two versions.

A very cool kit indeed! In what diorama setting would this best be applicable? Luftwaffe airfield construction seems plausible to me ... possibly some Army (Heer) Engineer/Pioneer units maybe? Anyhow, I love the way it looks!

Pulling light(ish) trailers and smaller aircraft on airfields. No Luftwaffe planes in 1/35 though ... maybe īsome bomb trolleys to arm some Stukas ? Maybe aircraft in 1/32 ( 8% or 9% difference depending on what is chosen as the reference, is 1/32 bigger by 9% or is 1/35 smaller by 8% ...) / Robin Edit: See correction in post below, I had totally forgotten about that Storch. Certainly light enough to be handled by this tractor

Tristar has a Storch in 1/35, but I think that is all there is.

Yes...that's an option. Tamiya also has a recently released Storch, too.

In 1/48 yes.

I think that it might prove useful in the shop floor scene that I was planning. I'd need to scratch-build a suitable low bed trailer but that's about it. And a pusher-style front bumper.

We broke our quick reply box. Working on it. Until fixed go to topic to reply.
Thanks.
