Matthew Lenton takes Italeri's M13/40 kit, plus some decent tracks and a new commander and tries to recreate one of the first Italian tanks into North Africa in 1941.

Very enjoyable read Matthew, and nice job on the diminutive M13/40. The AM tracks were well worth it, IMO. Bannerman's book must be very good, or you're a natural figure painter, as your commander came out extremely well...and both eyes look perfect to me! Thanks for sharing this one.

Your M13/40 is well built and looks like it's put dozens of dust miles under its tracks. Well done!

I concur with James, your commander looks very convincing.

Hello, I am writing from Italy and I like the WWII African war. The "M13/40 II serie" you have build is o good subject, but a first sight you have made two errors: the front plate because the second serie has not and the number of plate because the VII battalion had number between 3002- 3030 approximately. Finally the "cupolotto" on the radiator, smooth and without the upper fins for cooling as you can say from your photo for inspiration. Write to me for other request if you want...
