PP51 Armored Train / GPM / 1:87

Decided to start on a Polish Armored Train that I have had on my to-do pile for awhile. Photos of the cover, and my frame pieces glued on 0,5mm card. I am a slow and easily distracted builder, so this might take some time..;-) Also, I think this might be a GPM produced model??

RE: 1/87 PP51 Armored Train

Yep, Kartonowka happened to be the magazine published by GPM.

This is an interesting coincidence because, after finishing the Mont Saint-Michel (Instant Durable), I intend to build this train as well. Not the 1/87 model you have but GPM's 1/25 scale model. It has over 4000 parts spread across 55 A3 pages, plus instructions. Not surprisingly, it will take a lot of time...
Just a remark - you say (and that is on the picture) PP51. GPM's 1/25 model is PP52 Pilsudczyk but the locomotive is clearly the same. Maybe someone can clarify this.

GPM offered in their magazine Kartonowka additions to their program but also new items.

For instance: Fokker D-VII regular program - Polish version; Kartonowka: German version

The Kartonowka version here is a scaled-down version from the regular program

Additions in Kartonowka: jerrycans, oil-drums, sherman railings, conversion-kit for a Zero-fighter (diorama: on flightdeck with folded wings), Sherman tank railings. dein Forum! It's Yours! Jouw Forum!
