Polish armoured train

Hi I decided to build a train model and the choice was of course an armored train. I would not be myself if it was not a Polish train
for the beginning a short video showing the original:

The model is built from scratch on a 1/50 scale
And start work - skeleton and first veneer

little update of artillery railway wagon.
Now it looks like part of an real armored train.
I need to build another one to complete the entire train.

It will be "Poznańczyk" (that means a resident of the city of Poznań)
The model will be in the painting from the early 30's (like in the movie).
Pictures taken with the flash

There is a mistake in the caption on the film. He suggests that it is train number 11 "Danuta" and in fact the train is no. 12 "Poznańczyk". They differed in the shape of the assault wagon. In my opinion the wagon of the "Poznańczyk" is nicer

Nice work radett - look forward to the finished result.

Have always enjoyed armoured trains, and collect any books on them I can find!

Snap!

Saved up- and bought it in 2017. It broke the bank, but it is my "go-to bible" for a first check now!

Brilliant book.

yeah, same here, paid around 45 quid for mine, and while on the model show left it with my club guys at the display - and there were some bystanders drooling at the sight of that monster! ;D

love the Polish section though, plenty pics and some drawings. wish there were more, but ... well... still love it.
