Bronco 1/35 CV3/33 Tankette

I recently purchased a Miniart set of Italian tank crew as I have an idea for a diorama at some point so for the past couple of evenings I’ve been assembling and painting one of the figures. The Miniart set is pretty good although there was a bit of flash and some heavy seam lines to remove first but after clean up and under a coat of Games Workshop Chaos Black it looked pretty good. Before it was undercoated I drilled a hole in the figures’ mouth and added some sprue to represent a cigarette.
It’s been a while since I painted a 1/35 figure but I quite enjoyed it, the figure also gives the tankette some scale and shows just how small it was. The figure was painted with Vallejo acrylics throughout, I used to use oil paints for flesh areas but tend to use acrylics more nowadays.

I've been a modelmaker for a verrry long time and still show no signs of growing out of it after 48 years. I mainly build tanks, aircraft and paint figures but generally do whatever takes my fancy whether it's historical, Science-fiction, a 'what-if' or because it has pretty colours and looks nice. I'm hoping that you find my blog interesting and useful, particularly if building a model that I have built and documented here.
