Looking for clarification... is this during or post WW2. RL-20 vs RL-20N???? Does the designation RL-20 make it late war but not post? Thanks!

Steve - the first section of the review states that this model is the RL-20 which was produced from 1937 thru 1942 and commonly used throughout Germany during that time. It goes on to state that postwar other editions were offered but the RL-20 was so common as to still be in use today. Sounds to me like you are free to pose this model in any environment war or peace from 1937 onward.

Nice one, Andras. You handled well the resin and photo-etched parts along the building process.
Cheers!

Neat! A tractor that I can either incorporate into a farm scene or a factory scene towing equipment, etc.

Thank you Gabriel To be honest, it's not a difficult build; just position the front fenders with the wheels on
