Italian armour for the Western Desert.

An array of recently finished Italian armour.

First off, a platoon of Italeri M14/41's, spruced up a little with sandbag armour, and fuel canisters. Sandbags were probably a tad on the large side here.

For a little heavier support, the beginnings of a Semovente battery, again Italeri kits, with similar additions.

Naturally the best bit about the Italians is the ability to field hordes of tankettes. These L3's are a mix of makers, with SHQ, S-models and a pair of scratchbuilt examples.

A close up on the scratchbuilt L3's. A little rough and not as nicely detailed as the kits, but perfectly passable. Have started work on a further gaggle of ones using the same plans to further expand to field a full company of the little vehicles.

Finally the whole family together.
