More desert Italians

These were a pleasure to paint, a quartet of TL37 tractors from Minimi, the only downside was the base, but I decided to keep it as it was a lot thinner than on previous models. The drivers are old Airfix jeep drivers with Italian heads from Reiver.



Why doing these I also worked on a pair of the Italeri M13/40 tanks, lovely models, shame that they are 1/72 rather than 1/76. They also provided a useful set of decals, which also provided the number plates for the TL37s. The only other downside is that the hatches are fixed closed.

Very nice. I contacted minimi for some Humber Heavy Utility cars and asked if he'd remove the base. This he did which was very, very good of him but most of the stuff is sold with bases. The M13/40's are 1/72 but look really good.
