Adie Roberts continues his inspirations to help inspire modellers of all abilities to work out of their comfort zone building dioramas or just trying new builds.

A fantastic build from modelling friend Andrea Maselli and his Autoblindo AB41 late version, German recce unit, Croatia, July1944

The AB41 was the standard reconnaissance armoured car of the Royal Italian Army which used it with excellent results in the African Campaign, the Russian Front and the Balkans from mid-1941 to September 8th, 1943. After the September 1943 Armistice of Cassibile, all the AB41s were requisitioned by the Wehrmacht, which went on to reuse them in France and Germany. Some of them were given to the Esercito Nazionale Repubblicano (National Republican Army), the collaborationist army of the Benito Mussolini’s Repubblica Sociale Italiana ( Italian Social Republic), which was founded on 23th September 1943 on Italian territories still under German control. In total, about 660 were produced even after the German occupation. After the war, they were still employed by the Polizia di Stato (State Police)
