  1. Hello everyone, This is my take on a workhorse of Axis in North African theater, Carro Armato M13/40. It should represent a Series 3 tank belonging to the Ariete division, sometime around the battle of Bir el Gubi, November 1941, during the opening engagements of Operation Crusader. The particular vehicle belongs to the VIII battalion, 1st Company, 2nd Platoon. The Ariete's first units disembarked in Tripoli on 24 January 1941. Battle at Bir el Gubi was the first engagement where Ariete fought as a division. Also, it was the first armored engagement in the conflict that was successful for the Italians, and it was the battle that earned Ariete division respect among both Axis and Allies. After this event, the narrative directed toward Italian armored forces changes to: "they fought valiantly, despite being ill-equipped". The model is based on Tamiya kit No. 35296 with some changes in order to accurately represent the Series 3 vehicle (Tamiya kit is a mix of features of Series 1, 2, and 3 vehicles, as well as M14/41). I also used a few AM Royal Model sets. You can see the whole build here. And here's the result: Kit is painted with Hataka's version of Khaki Sahariano. Weathered with MIG's nature effects and MIG's and VMS pigments. I enjoyed building this kit. Even though it has some issues regarding accuracy, changes required to make it accurate (if that's your thing) are quite easy to do. Thanks for watching and thanks for the feedback. Cheers, Nenad

  4. Hello Britmodellers; here's my latest model, Italeri's 1/48 Reggiane RE 2002 Ariete, in the markings of Major Giuseppe Cenni mount (supposedly) just before the armistice, August 1943. For this reason, all the "fasci" on the original AC were either cancelled or over-painted, as I tried to reproduce. Sadly enough, Major Cenni was shot down a few days before the official armistice date, after a chase operated by some Spitfires, in southern Italy sky. The kit is ... oh well, as Troy says, a real pig: inaccuracy and fit problems all over; I tried to correct something, such as thinning the wings and using a resin spine, I did some scratch-building and some surgery, all of which can be seen in the WIP Thread Paints are mainly Tamiya Acrylics and Lifecolor Acrylics; the antenna wire is one of my eldest daughter's hair. White band and rudder cross are painted, only the marking on the latter was cut out from the kit decals Now the pics, comments and suggestions are more then welcome Wing guns are small copper pipes coming from electric contacts, cut to size It was while taking this pic that the disaster happened: I was outside, wind arose and ... .... disaster Well, I fixed it all, and as a matter of fact some of the pics above have been taken after the fix (which also involved replacing the antenna wire, that now stays much tighter) Details you can't see in the completed model; the rudder pedals were completely scratch-built; some cables, pipes and knob were added; instrument dials are kit decals, with a drop of PVA glue to simulate glass Engine was detailed adding some wirings I've also scratch built the radio rack, using some leftovers from an old Tornado kit (!?!) Ciao
  5. Hello Britmodellers; here is my first aircraft WIP on BM: it's the Italeri 1:48 Reggiane RE2002. The kit box: The only aftermarket I'll be using: First damage (while removing the excess resin): Easy fix, anyway, with some CA. See the difference with the kit fuselage spine: Quick dryfit test: There's going to be some work to be done on the wing-to-fuselage joins: Even more so here: Opened up the wing gun holes: And put a stop for the gun barrel: Some rescribing (wing gun doors): Opened the radio access panel and scratch built some details of the internal structure (not much would be seen, but a minimum maybe...) See you for the next update
