Immediately I was intrigued by this vehicle. As it was a modelhit ten years ago I had great trouble to get all the wanted parts.
So I payed the motherload for the figures. But I wanted them.
I also read more about the Italian Soldier in general and in particular the Arditi.
The 10th Arditi Regiment was formed again in WW2 as an answer to the British L.R.D.G. and the S.A.S. as the Arditi were disbanded after WW1.
The Germans had great respect for the Arditi!

Yikes. Was the fit that bad or was it modifications for the upgrades?

I have this kit. Dug it up to confirm so on photo 3 there is a noted fit problem. Hmm think I will bury it back into the stash ;/

I was not being used to such soft plastic and the fitting probs Robbie stated. The little pins were a bit conic so it kept pushing itself out of the holes and then I pushed too hard. I talked to som peeps who build it and bought a building explanation of it on Modelersite. Panzerserra built it too, so I'm convident to tackle the problems which are mainly the allignment of the wheels. (I hope ?)

Think I fixed the camber issue @Robbd01

So... On top of the chassis fit problem there is a camber problem. Guess I need to follow this to see what other nasty things you find building this thing. Sad because I think that is such a cool looking vehicle. So Italian (I mean that in a good way)

Thanks, have to admit that the last weeks I more and more enjoy the building of it.

great job so far, I've built it too and the whole process was... problematic. The terrible instructions provided by Italeri didn't help either, especially regarding the color scheme, but I see that that wasn't an obstacle for you. Be careful, tough, I think you attached the cannon magazine upside down. Looking at other completed models, many other modelers made the same mistake. [img1]

You are right, @grappa_0_0_0. Just in time to turn it around 😉. Thanks, mate!
And yes, a pitty the brand produces such a nice kits, but in poor conditions…

So, that's it. Basta. Maybe a diorama in the near future. I thinking about it.
It was very educating, both reading about Regio Esercito (the italian army) and building.
I loved to use the LifeColor paint, pigments and washes.
A pitty there are so less Italian figures.
