Jim Rae provides a Preview of what should be one of Trumpeter's 'stars' of 2010. With the release of their 203mm B4 Howitzer, the question on many people's minds was ''what can we tow it with?''. The first injection-molded Soviet Artillery tractor in 1/35th - The Voroshilovets.

Very nice Jim and thanks! I forgot all about this one with all the hoopla of armor being released so it is now on my list.

Very cool! Wonder if the Pak 40 ever made it onto the back of one of these?

Yep, considering all the discussion over prototype models which many insist on producing (Trump included ) it's easy to lose sight of the fact that the majority of the manufacturers are working on (ahem) sensible releases.. This is, IMO, one of the most significant releases in recent years. Significantly as well, they've made a VERY good job of it.

This is great news, and a fine "first look," Jim! Glad to see it.

Right on time as I've just finished building the howitzer.

This is great news and new to me. Now I definitely have to get one of those howitzers...

Cheers!
