Decided to build my own version of a Soviet Prime mover using parts from three kits , Esci's T-55 , Trumpeter's Zil-157K truck
and parts from Trumpeter's T-55 with BTU-55 blade

I might log off for the day and see what I can get done.................

Thanks everyone , I really appreciate it !!

here's most of the build photo's and the kit's I used







Most of the upper hull done away with , and the roadwheel spacing adjusted



Fenders added along with the cab widened



Esci's tracks suck to put together , but do have a nice sag to them
