Here is my latest creation. It is a Tamiya kit with Model Victoria crew figures. The kit has had alot of work done to it and the figures are just great out of the box. I am currently tryingto tone down their coveralls. Hope you enjoy.

So are you telling me that you can see the pics? That all that matters. I can care less if I can see them.

I can't see them..I would say that community.webshots does not allow direct linking so maybe try getting a kitpic account or photobucket.
I'll post these using my kitpic account.

This is one of my favorites vehicles :lol: The Tamiya kit is awesome (though the Italeri kit is still awesome too) I love that you adjusted the fenders to properly portray most all of the Italian vehicles that are based on that chassis in North Africa

Are the tracks stock? They have a bit of a sag to them...

What paint brands and colors did you use? I like it, but I think it should be a tad bit lighter, unless, IDK, you want it to be like they just arrived there?

Either way, it's a sweet looking kit

RC

(when are we going to see your Tristar pz IV D? Did you get those spare tracks that you needed?)

WEll Roy,

I'm saying that I thought I saw them earlier, but......

Unless I saw this posted somewhere else?

Shoot I'm getting too old to remember :lol:

Nice job. I like the light weathering on the tank.

Thanks a bunch Panzerfaust for posting those pics for me. Yes R.C. I did get the Tristar tracks that I needed(more than I needed) Thanks. The Pz IV is in the final stages. This M 13/40 is made to represent a tank that is pictured on Page 30 of Squadron Signals "Italian Medium Tanks in Action". The Tamiya kit is actually a M14/41 so some backdating in needed. Great thing is that there is not that much difference and the corrections are minor with the major sticky point being the grills. They should run longitudinal for a M13/40 and not laterally(M14/41 feature) as in the kit. There are some minor changes that need to be made dependent on which production series you wish to potray. I wanted to make mine as the pictured leaned me to believe was a third production series veh. I wished to make it appear to have been painted with the darker Italian Airforce tan(which was painted over the factory standard grey green) as many were when they arrived in N. Africa until they started to arrive with the much lighter Army tan. I used Lifecoler Italian Light Sand #4. The tracks are Friulis. I replaced the bolt detail on top of each suspension unit(should be four bolts instead of the two that come on the kit) with ones made from rod. I also placed around 50 Grant Line conical head rivits around the rear hull areas that the kit totally neglects. I made castings of the mufflers as the kit ones just are not right IMO. The fenders were cut down and then detailed with strip and the servicing hole(front upper inside of fenders) cut into each one. There are some Eduard and RCR brass pieces through out the kit. The lenses were robbed from another Dragon kit. And the towing hooks are a combo of wire and some robbed from an Italeri kit. The figures are as mentioned above. I really cannot speak highly enough of Model Victoria figs. They are great. After I finish a few already started kits I have laying around here my next project I think will be an Italeri Semovente of the Ariete Div. Thanks for looking guys.
