Italeri 1/35th 508 CM Coloniale

Continuing my obsession with all things small and especially staff cars at the moment this is the next model on the smudgewerks bench,

This is an all new kit from Italeri and looks quite nice,

It's only two sprunes and generally the detail is quite nice however there is quite a lot of flash and ejector pin knockouts to deal with as well as some depressions which need to be filled. This is most evident on the doors. The canvas hood also has a very strange texture moulded on it which I think is italeri's attempt to depict rough canvas.

Some detail looks quite soft and unrefined but with careful work an interesting and unusual model can be produced. I am looking forwards to the challenge!
