Kübelwagen - Fallschirmpanzer Division H.G., 2. Flak Bataillon, 1. Kompanie, Italie 1944 - Italeri - 1/35

An old kit, years long forgotten on a shelf, full of dust...

After some difficult research on the internet, I think I have identified the unit to which this Kübelwagen belongs ...

The decals are laid and I took the opportunity to paint the tools and the lights. I started the tarpaulin, reduced to its simplest expression, the arches not being represented ...

Unless otherwise stated, it would be the 1st Company of the 1st Flak Battalion of the 1st Fallschirmpanzer Regiment Hermann Göring. Italeri is not very precise on his instructions. If you have more information about this decoration proposed by the Italian manufacturer, I am interested.

Jean-Louis,
Really nice work!




Thank you Frederick. It could have been a much better build... I forgot to remove all the dust on the model before spraying the base layer...
