Hi all,

 

This is not my usual part of the forum but I have build this Autoblinda AB 41 in 1/48 scale.

It is a Tamiya box but originaly released by Italeri.

Quite a good kit but the assembly is not as precise as a real Tamiya one!

I build the AB41 from the box. Paint is a mix of XF59 and XF60 followed by a little weathering.

The model scheme is of the Polizia Africa Italiana in Tunisia , early 1943.

Thank you for your attention and keep modelling!

No, for stabbing the enemy! Or maybe an antenna???

Very nice.  Weathering is nice and restrained and the Italian flag is very well done - colours not too bright, is it a decal or did you paint them on?

 

I do like the AB41, very attractive little vehicle.

Looking at what you've done with this, I think that you should build more armour. Nice job.

You have done a superb job with that. I'm a big fan of 1/48 armour kits and I agree with John - you should definitely build some more! :thumbsup:

Kind regards,

Stix

Thank you, Plastix!

I like building armour but I do not have enough time to build my planes. And, as I am a slow modeler, it is hard to finish as many kits that I would like..!

But I have a nearly finished Panhard VBL on my stash!

Thank you all.

As the others have said, that’s a great looking model and just as convincing as anything in the larger scales.

Thank you very much for your appreciation, Nick!😀
