Wiking’s Hanomag K55 crawler tractor 1/25 scale [#5 weathering] [video]

Hello guys, it is so far. The Hanomag K55 is done! I hope you like the result. I’ve built the hitch from scratch, added a few pipes and cables and -of course- some serious weathering. Check the video for more details on the weathering effects that I’ve used on this one (lots of dry brush effects involved this time).
Questions? Comments? Feel free to write at the bottom of this post!
Take care!

Please be advised that I have a new email address as stated above. Please eliminate the email address.

Also, I’m curious as to what are your latest plans are to have the Texaco gas station plans available to us or in fact have the kit itself for purchase? Thank you for your concern in these matters!

Dear Tom,
We are working on the tutorial now. It’s almost finished. I injured my right arm and that made the progress to slow down. You’ll be noticed as soon as it’s ready.

The 57 ford is way too cool. I have tried to do this sort of modeling, but still I am learning more all the time. In fact all of the models that are shown are nice.

Hi Scott, thank you for the feedback. The ’57 Ford was built by Iggy, and yes, it’s a ver cool model.

Hi guys, thanks for the 57 Ford, it brings back the Sunday afternoon races in Rangley Plantation, [west corner of Maine]. My cousin called the races, on a dirt track cut in a wood lot. Turns 1 & 2 were maybe, 10′ higher than 3 & 4 [not just dirt, but up and down hill]. Local people, few rules and cars like your Ford and worse. Liked the tracktor too, great weathering job. Thanks again, keep im comin.

Hi Paul, I’m glad our models bring those great memories back to you! Thanks for sharing!

Hi Iggy and Seb
Thanks for all this wonderful information. Your models are works of art.

Seb July 19, 2012 at 6:05 am

Hi Steve, Thank you for the kind words!

Seb, the crawler is a work of Art. I love the details such as the hitch. Where did the model come from? Are they available?

Thanks in advance.
