1/35 Peerless Canadian Chevrolete Field Gun Tractor

Recommended Posts

Purchased this oldie at a local IPMS show a few months ago for a Canadian GB online. I decided to make some improvements as I build the model up. I first started with boxing in the radiator and installing the screen protector, using what was on hand on the workbench. Unfortunately, I had no PE screen, so I just used a little nylon screen material. I think it may be from an old Tamiya kit?

The wench was a bit fiddly, as I haven't found the best material for wench cable. I used some jewelry wire, but I found it a bit difficult to wind up and glue into place.

The wheels were difficult to install, as the hubs just wobbled without any guide pins. So, I made my own using some brass tubing.

Now the wheels have no wobble when they get glued on. Just need to remember to keep the wheel treads all aligned :)
