I found this sweet little kit from Warbases..
It’s a very well observed laser cut kit based on a WW2 era Soviet tram (1.56 scale)
So assembled out of the box you get this..
Although it does include an electric pick-up for the roof – it’s way to heavy in 2mm mdf, so I immediately discarded that.
So then I just went to town with a bunch of plastic rod and card and detailed it up, making my own pick-up and adding handrails and driver mirrors etc.
Finally, paint of course and add some clear plastic to the windows (I left the roof removable so I could do this last). For decals I just browsed my unused tank decal sheets for numbers and a I found a couple of eagle motifs that look groovy for the sides.
I think the Stalingrad tram may have been red and yellow but I didn’t want such a garish terrain piece on an otherwise quite subdued board, so I chose instead the nice green and cream scheme which may be more appropriate for Moscow though I’m not sure, but I like it.
For reference, here are some real images.02/12/2021 at 11:18 #165519MikeKeymaster02/12/2021 at 11:59 #165522deephorseParticipant

The kit is very nice. The modeling and painting to bring it to life is fantastic.
