Italeri - US Half Tracks

Finished these yesterday


Nice little models, well engineered, and no flash


All of about ten parts each, very good wargames models


Partly undercoated on sprue


Vallejo Dark Green, black wash, then two stages of lighter dry-brushing


Decals from the spares bag. I usually leave nation markings off this sort of kit so that the Russians can use them as well; made an exception with these



Could easily pimp these up a bit more, but they'll do for now. I have enough of these to mount two companies of US Armoured Infantry. Nice kits, x2 for $20.

  1. Good Job Al. They have come up really well. You need one with the Maxon Mounting in the back though. There's something quite unsettling about the thought of 4 x 50's banging away all at once!

  6. They look great here and on Paul's blog as well. Love those quick build Italieri kits. I'm definitely on the lookout for some for my Brits.

  7. Mixed with the PSC, Academy Hasagawa and Airfix that should give a good bit of variety!
