Hello everyone,
started almost for fun, bought the box to build it together with my son when it was threatened to close due to lockdown is a model that, although static, gave me a lot of satisfaction

The construction was done at home, completed at the Patrie Officine as the Headquarters prohibits the use of the airbrush in the home.

The Tamiya kit has been upgraded from Friumodel metal tracks:

:D perhaps the Christmas Carol lytic should be changed to:
" O little tank of Bethlehem"... :D
Thanks for the entertaining and unconventional tableau! Nice tank too :thumbup:

Nice work.
I'm still trying to figure out proper weathering techniques on my military models.
