Model of the most popular diesel locomotive in Poland and the countries of Eastern Block.

M62-1536 from one of silesian private carrier PCC Rail Szczakowa.

M62 is a Soviet built diesel locomotive for heavy freight trains, exported to many Eastern Block countries as well as to Cuba, North corea and Mongolia.

At the monet the locomotives that are still in use in large numbers, are owned and operated by private Railroad companies, also as the ST44 serie in PKP.


Another variety of "Gagarin"

M62-1241 from one of silesian private carrier PTKiGK Zabrze (at the moment DB Shenker).

Refrigerator van class 202Lc

This model show refrigerator van type 202Lc.
This type of wagon was wery popular in Poland from 60s to first part of 90s.

At the end of their life, they were no longer be used by PKP. Transport of frozen products was took over by ground transport, and this wagons were putted down in sidetracks. The weather devastate them very fast.

Model is showing example of such damages.

Diesel locomotive class ST43 "Rumun"

One of the most popular diesel locomotive PKP in Poland.

ST43 is the name for a Romanian diesel locomotive, produced by Electroputere, exported to and operating in Poland for heavy freight trains.

In the early 1960s a need appeared in Poland for urgent introduction of locos able to haul heavy freight. This was caused mainly by the intensification of transport on south-north line, especially from the Silesian coal mines to Szczecin and Swinoujscie harbours. Lack of experience in building diesel locos for that purpose was the reason why the first ones had to be bought from Romania.

In March 1965 first 30 items of 060DA locomotives (factory number of ST43) were introduced into Poznan and Szczecin, according to agreement with romanian producer. Good results of tests allowed next deliveries to be brought to Poland. Until 1978 a total number of 422 locomotives were operating in Poland.

In the 1990s, the ST43 appeared to be no longer necessary as most of the tracks serviced by it were electrified. Most of the units were withdrawn, the rest were sent for use on passenger and light transport trains.

This model present number 171. It was build and weathered straightly due to oryginal.
Weathering I've made using the most advanced techniques and products for this task.

The base model is From Tillig/Kemo 060DA in 1:87 scale. The body is resin and projected by myself.

Please enjoy!!

Earth mover "Belorus"

The first model of resin kit, which I've made last time. Earth mover "Belorus" from Plus Model in 1/35 scale.

The price of this kit was high, but quality and precision recompense this sad fact:) The kit is excellent, highly detailed. There is everything what is nedeed to build this beatiful model, including flexible pipes.

All of resin details have no air bubbles. Everything is accurate.

In future I would like to build vignette with simple act of Polish PRL's building ground.
