Finally i have managed to put my dirty hands on a 1/72 vehicles.

 

This time is an Italian one, the AS42 Sahariana scout car, it just misses the decals but the diorama is ready, maybe a little tree on the background...

Anyway! The AS42 was meant to be the response to SAS and Desert Rats raids, with a max speed on road of 90km/h and 37km/h off road, heavy armament such as the 20mm Breda cannon and additional HMG and LMG, lots of canisters for water and fuel, spare wheel and 2 metal planks to surpass trenches and help removing the vehicle from the ground, should have been a pretty desert lady. It could also mount a 47mm Elefantino anti tank gun.

 

Here the photos! It's my first true diorama, all brush painted. The idea for the diorama was a patrol stopping to check for the presence of water to be indicated to others troops, but I had a shortage of Italians 1/72 figures so it's the lonely sergeant Mario getting lost in the desert.
