  1. WoW! What an interesting vehicle. I've never seen one. That's a lot of gun there!

  2. Jeff said exactly what I was thinking...! 🙂

  3. I really like it! Unique subject dont think I have seen one before. Great paint and finish, especially your weathering of it. Love the jerry cans.

  4. Ditto the interesting vehicle, and beautiful build. I, too, like the jerry cans, but the thought of what appears to be approximately 100 gallons (or the metric equivalent thereof) of gasoline between the crew and the bullets is not exactly a pleasant one! I guess some of those could carry water, though...

  5. David, I found out about this vehicle while reading Clive Cussler book and had to look it up. Had never heard of them previously. These Italian-made desert vehicles were a valuable addition to the Africa Corp. glad to see some built one and you did a masterful job.

  6. Thank you very much guys. I also found this vehicle interesting and I like everything from North African campaign of WWII so it was an easy call. The kit from Italeri is nice but there were few traps that made the build bit tricky. I had to replace plenty of small parts but it was worth the time and effort. I am glad you like it.

  7. A very interesting vehicle, excellent work!

  8. very successful chipping and a dusty feeling as well as wear and tear.


  9. Lovely work David, the dusty tyres particularly.
