Italeri 1/35 Carro Armato M14/41 I Serie w/Italian Infantry

Here's another little project, bought on an impulse.

Firstly, the figures. Here is an Italian machine gun team, gunner and loader. The figures are by Masterbox, and have nice detail, although are somewhat lacking in terms of definition and detail compared to the Dragon figures I was working on previously. This was an attractive part of the kit for me.

Here's a rather blurry picture of the tank. An older kit, it needs a little work.

For example, the turret needs some work around the gun mantlet. It seems it should be a mostly smooth weld, rather than plates bolted on.

I've been working on the turret.

I've also assembled two more of the figures.

I've also been researching Italian uniforms, finding some references.

Nice. Does this kit come with the kangaroo markings for the captured Australian version?

It doesn't, but other Italeri issues do.

Having trouble with the bottom machine guns. The piece provided looks rather crap, and drilling holes didn't really improve it much. Going to probably cover it in some kind of protective canvas.
