Very nicely done, in the right environment it would pass for the real deal.

Thanks , it's an old and very brittel Italaerei kit. It's definitely not perfect but it was fun to do something different.

Nice dirty build!  That's the vintage Italeri Panzer 38(t) Skoda light tank, still looking good.  Pic below of the original "white box" issue, when the company was still spelling its name "Italaerei."

According to Der Experten, the Italeri kit is an Ausf. C model, manufactured from May to August 1940 and used in the invasion of France.  Like its older brother the Skoda 35(t), it got into the German army when Hitler took over the Czech munitions industry in 1938-39.  The 38(t) soldiered on for a long time, thru the Russian campaign, but was eventually outclassed and converted into many different versions of light self-propelled artillery and anti-aircraft guns.  Including the famous Hetzer light tank destroyer, also modeled by Italeri.

Along with the Italeri M13 Italian light tanks, US Jeep and M4A1 Sherman, etc., back in the 1970s this was one of the kits that showed Tamiya it now had some serious competition in 1/35 scale armor.

That's the one , it was a door prize. Put it together in about a week.  I don't have an air brush, so this was all brush painted , I know nothing about armour, just wanted to see what I could do with it.

Very good paint work on this. I like the subtle color changes in the steel.

Could have fooled me. I think it looks fantastic.
