Italeri 1/72 Valentine Mk.II tank

Posted by huib on 01 Nov 2018, 22:22

The Valentine tank was one of the important British tank models in de desert war in North Africa 1940-1942. It was a reliable, well armoured vehicle, but its gun was insufficient to combat both enemy infantry and tanks.

Such nice weathering. And I like your scratch built stowage. I love stowage on vehicles!!

Great first pic.
Yes, as Bill Slavin already wrote it is very nice weathered (also the exhaust area) and full of stowage.
Only miss the crew.
Another nice work from you.

Very good Vatentine tank. I have builded this model as well, years ago. Unfortunately the figure is really crap.
As the others I like the convincing used look of the afv.

I know that this Panzer III will not fit well into north Africa.
