Anzio team Semevonte.
« on: December 25, 2014, 11:47:08 PM »
From the Girls und Panzer anime series.

http://gup.wikia.com/wiki/Semovente_da_75/18 Not sure how close to matching the sand color I can get.

I am using the Tamiya Semevonte. I got this as part of a Secret Santa from SMA. The box says it comes with a PE set. It does not. It does come with link and length tracks. I will be replacing the Jerry cans,

This is an older Tamiya kit, but builds up nicely and quickly. I used the rubber band tracks and they were fine. It has a "detailed" interior (for the day), although the figures look strange.

The old Tamiya figures always looked strange. ;D

I finally had some time dping some building finally after coming back on the road. I drilled the holes out on the muzzle brake. I forgot what fun and easy it is to build these older Tamiya kits. No drama with them. This kit goes back to 1974. :o

No kidding. If HobbyBoss made this kit now, it would have 800 parts and a sheet of tiny PE parts that'll never be seen. The details may be simplified in some areas, but the tank looks great when finished.

After watching the Anzio battle again,to see what colors were used on the tank tools,I noticed a third Jerry can on the left side. So today,I added another one. I will respray when I can get into warmer weather.

Looked done to me.  Wouldn't thought of dust, but am not an armor builder.
Tools & mufflers add legit contrast to already fine build :)

Nice work on that Semovente! (semovente means self-moving in Italian, not "semevonte" :)).

I would add some dust on the tracks, and also some graphite pencil on its surface , though.
