My Favorite AFV in the Show: ChTZ S65 Soviet Tractor
Armor and associated types like artillery, soft-skinned vehicles are always another large and popular category in scale model shows. I do not envy the judges who have to make definite decisions about placing one marvelous work over another. These are all very good in their own unique way.
