iModeler at the movies, Sahara 1943.

This a representation of Lulubelle , an M3 Lee medium tank, seen in along with Humphrey Bogart in 1943’s Sahara. set in the North African campaign during WW2. This isn’t a kit, it’s a die cast 1/50 Solido model. I did add some brush paint, a bit of weathering ,whip antenna, and fender lights and a bogus Bogart figure. The decals came from Company B, a war gaming sit, the scale is actually 1/56. I know there’s 1/32 Lee tanks out there, but I’m shelf space challenged and 1/72 armour is too small for my fingers.

  1. ‘A bogus Bogart figure’ – possibly the first smile anyone has gotten out of me on a Monday morning in the last twenty years, Robert.

    Carrying on the alliterative theme, a lovely Lulubelle. A small build that’s all heart. A worthy place on your crowded shelf awaits, @roofrat

    Thanks for getting in a build – this was a lovely surprise from a dear friend – is there a better way to start the week?
