Hanomag R 16 All-Purpose Tractor
The Hanomag R 16 All-Purpose Tractor series T-35, known as R 16 A, was built from 1951 to 1954, followed by the improved series T-50 from 1954 bis 1957, which was known as R 16 B. The two types are easily distinguished by the spoked wheels of the early R 16 A.
The 1:87 (HO) scale Wiking model of the Hanomag R 16 B shown here sports the red enamel finish exclusive to export vehicles. The doubled front axle is not accurate, although this detail will only be noticeable upon close inspection from the front. Expert modellers may want to remove the solid steel axle and mount the wheels correctly. Other small detail parts may be added to further improve the model.
