This model represents the M14/41, a medium tank used by the Italian Royal Army during the Second World War. Since it fought mainly in North Africa, I chose to give it a desert camouflage. In this post I will show the phases of assembling and painting.
Some years ago, during a fair, I stumbled upon this Tiger II kit: this vehicle has always fascinated me, and which often sported some camouflage more interesting than usual. I chose a three-tone (yellow, red and green) scheme with spots of different colors, the so-called ambush camouflage —or Hinterhalt-Tarnung in German.
The 29th model I completed depicts a French-built Renault FT-17 tank, produced towards the end of the First World War, put in a diorama. Due to the pandemic, I took a bit to finish it, from September 2019 to November 2021.
The 28th model I made represents a US-built M88 A1G armored recovery vehicle (ARV), operated by the German armed forces (Bundeswehr) under the designation Bergepanzer 1. It took approximately one year and 9 months to build, from September 2018 to late May 2020.
In this post you will find the photo gallery of my 27th model, a SU-100 Second World War-era Soviet tank destroyer. It took around 8 months to complete, from January to September 2018.
