Thunder Model has advised us that the Scammell Pioneer R100 Heavy Artillery Tractor will be released late in October, and has also shared images.
From Thunder Model:

The kit will feature
  • accurate and detailed reproduction in scale, with correct measurements and dimensions based on factory drawings where available, and measurements of real vehicles
  • winch and under chassis are faithfully reproduced without compromises on detail
  • all windows and doors can be assembled opened or closed
  • front wheels can turn and swing
  • real bogies can also swing
Images from an upcoming test build will show PE detail parts like a tool basket, fuel tank cap and other small brass parts.

In related news, the long-awaited 1/35 Scammell Pioneer TRMU30/TRCU30 Tank Transporter 30t is being released as of this writing.

Our thanks to Thunder Model for the update.

Looking at the 3d renderings it looks like they've made an better effort that IBG on the winch detail; but they've missed all the linkages from the driver's pedals and brake linkages.

It looks also they've invented a brand new Firestone tread on the rears, let's hope this is 3D renders error only.
