Revell Deutz D30 Tractor

Recommended Posts

All finished up, neat kit, had fun building it, painted it with Tamiya X5 Green, thinned with Mr thinner.  I have to say, I am becoming a fan of this Easy Click System , its just fun these models.

Beautiful models.  Rear tire treads are reverse from "normal"  Is this the European way??

Wow Jonathan,  you got the kit on Wednesday and it's under glass today. I have always been impressed with how quickly and cleanly you build. Every one is just spot on. Great job once again!

No, they should be the other way around.....

Very nice builds, I've got both the Deutz and Porsche tractors to build, I'll be starting the Porsche when I get back from Hong Kong at the end of the month.

Nice Deutz!  That one's on the Buy List.  I built the Porsche and it was fun.  These are simple kits but have plenty of room for extra detailing and weathering.

Somebody in here built the Porsche tractor and painted it a beautiful gloss dark blue.  That got me to thinking about different colors for these tractors.

Maybe a tractor used at a regional German airport in the 1950s, painted blue with "Lufthansa" decals. It might pull luggage trailers and work as a general airfield towing hack.  Even scratch-building a trailer wouldn't be that hard.

Or a blue tractor from an American air base in Germany, with "U.S. Air Force" decals pulling a bomb trailer or something.  Lots of possibilities...

A few years back at one of the Porsche shows (it may have been a Rennsport Reunion), they actually wrapped a number of Porsche Juniors in iconic racing livery, so you had the Pink Pig, the Hippie car, and a number of other schemes available. I had hoped that one of the decal manufacturers would make them available, but I haven't found them yet.

I see that Revell did not take the Easy way out on these tractors. Both the Front and Rear Tires are unique tools to each tractor. It will be interesting to see if Revell releases a third tractor that re-uses the tires from one of these two kits. And, those front tires are perfect for Rat Rods. I'll need at least two of the Duetz , just for the front wheels/tires.

Seems Revell is on a German classic tractor theme, there's so many other German tractors they could release without looking at other countries, including a few from the former East Germany.

Bring all of them on, Revell. I can see plenty of potential rat rod noses in these pics!
