1/72 Italeri Matilda Mk II

Gallery Article by El Rey on Dec 26 2011

Hi, Friends! This is my first time with a tank, I chose a simple diorama, and what is the best scenery than the Tobruk desert.  The sand is flour, a turret of Panzer IV is buried in part of the landscape.  I had to scratchbuild the canon, machinegun and sleeping bags. The kit is not bad, but is not perfect. However it is the best in this scale.

The weathering was done with: oils and pastels.  The different shades were done using many colors, browns, sands and radome tan.  The tank is painted on Model Masters, the turret is from Hasegawa.

I hope you like it.
