Kraut kits is working on a new odd vehicle, the German heavy tractor Lauster Wargel LW 5.
There was only a prototype of this huge vehicle, built by Lauster in 1943. It was powered by Maybach HL 108 TUKRM engines, allowing the 36 ton vehicle to tow up to 53 tons.
It was intended either for recovery of tanks or towing a trench plough.
The 1/35 kit is still in progress but according to the photos shown, it looks very good, with (at least) part of the engines included.
