Ed, those look excellent!

The SdKfz 234 in the 2nd picture from the top looks like you're added some custom mesh to complete the cover screens on the turret (or was that included with the kit)?

Amen to that!

I made the mesh screen by bending it over the solid piece that came with the kit with the ass end of my Exacto knife, cutting off the excess and then cutting it in half. It distorted a bit so I had to bend it back into shape. Gluing it in place was a bit of a nightmare though. :) Here are a couple more, one with the original part that came with the kit.

Great collection indeed! Outstanding painting scheme and detailing you did on most of the models too. I like the two Italian AB 43, an interesting models as these were upgrades of the standard AB 41 with a larger 20mm gun turret that was produced after German take over of the Ansaldo factories in late 1943 and thus never saw action with the neglected Italian army. Do you have any other German ex Italian AFV in your collection!? Congratulations for your excellent work and collection!

Wow, fantastic.

Federico, according to Arrowhead those are AB41s and they are the only Italian vehicles I have from any maker. I have a lot of Arrowhead stuff – here are some of them. I buy in batches to save on shipping from England.

The 2 jeeps with the 50 cals in the back definitely look like "The Rat Patrol" that 1960s show featuring Americans in Tunisia.

MH, these are great pics of the Arrowhead Models – maybe even better than ones I've seen on the company website.

Hey, loving your additions here -
