HI Everybody

Here in Italy is very hot at the moment so not really big wish to model
Tried therefore an easy and quick project: Truck is Zvezda and FlaK is Bronco plus some Dragon bits (wheels and tracks) and some limited scratch...
I am happy with the Bronco kit and apart running gear also with teh Zvezda...
Hope you like it!

Ciao from sunny Italy

Hi Fabio,

indeed a beautiful build. Sometimes it does not need all that shiny PE...
Question about the frontwheels: Did you just sand them a little flat for a weighed appearence, or are the remodelled flattend/bulged?

Ciao,
Georg

Very good work, Fabio, with the Flak on the beast gets very attractive, and sure any paint scheme will look great in your hands.
My only advise would be to change the star on top of the radiator, I still don't know what I will do with mine, but seems too big (ok, maybe for the Flak would be a fine sight!).

Thanks Georg

It was a very quick project and I just did not want to go forever!

Front wheels are just slightly sanded (actually to remove the casting plug) so it is 90% a photo effect but I like it!

Ciao !

Fabio
