    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.

    That is not a bad kit at all.
    But you have made it so much better with the mods and that excellent paintjob!!

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