AB41

  • header85
The Italian AB-41 from Italeri in 1/35th scale built mostly OOB except that I opened out the lights and used 5min clear epoxy for the lenses and added gauze for netting and made some palm leaves out of kitchen ties, a set of goggles from a Tamiya set with foil straps were also added.
The model was painted using Tamiya acrylics and weathered with oils in the manner of washes and filters and finally a small amount of pigment at the end for dusting.

Nice seeing something besides another Wehrmacht panzer!! The poor Italians paid a huge price for Fascism, especially on the Eastern Front, yet we often see them and their vehicles as somehow humorous or a sideshow. Glad to see more done with their AFVs.
