M 25 American tank transporter

Today I received one of the best models you can get at the moment.
It is the American tank transporter M 25 together with the trailer.
Here some pictures I took today:

 





On the last picture you can see the difference between a model as a "mass product" and a hand-made product. But the price difference is hugh too, The Sherman tank from Dragon you can get for around $ 3 and for the M 25 you have to pay around 20 times more.

Trains in 1/144

Very close to Christmas I got a model for an acceptable price I was looking for a long time.
It’s the Leopold 28 cm gun, which the Germans used during World War II. This model shows a winter camo what was not with the normal production.

 
Krupp built 28 pieces of this railway gun. The most well known one was the one which shot at the Anzio beach during the American landing there. It took the Americans a long time to find out what and from where the shoots came. Finally the caught the gun which was after camouflaged and protected in a special railway bunker / shelter.
Another interesting railway tank is this Russian version I show below:
The model is from a friend of mine and not for public sale, so I’m more than happy that I got one.
