Google Translation of Marcos' spiel:

Quote from:  Marcos Felipe from Modelversium.de via Google Translate
Today I show you an Italeri M47, which I built about five years ago and which has now undergone an overhaul. Pan, chassis and chains remained unchanged. I have redesigned the upper and rear sides of the tub and above all the tower. In addition there was an additional armor on both sides. Everything was again made of cardboard, plastic plates, parts of pens and ink rollers. This time I built the smoke cups out of parts of an old telephone. The entire vehicle was first painted in gray and then aged with ink, pastels and acrylic paints.

Edward Lodewijk (Eddie) Van Halen might be a familiar name for those who follow(ed) rock music, especially in 1980s. A pretty handy guy with a guitar and played some famous solos. He started modifying his Stratocaster guitars because none was quite what he wanted, out of the box. So he made what became known as the "Frankenstein" guitar, or Frankenstrat.

On the Telecaster Discussion Page Reissue forum (tdpri.com), member fasteddie455 has just released his What-If version, based on the premise that Eddie Van Halen took his screwdrivers, soldering iron, tape and paint to a Telecaster guitar, instead ( http://www.tdpri.com/threads/copy-of-eddie-van-halens-tele.950801/ ). The guitar is reproduced with appropriate weathering (termed relicing in guitar circles), down to dings, scratches and some burn marks.

For reference: a real iteration of the Frankenstrat:

A magazine cover that proves the Frankentele is real:
