Nice change of pace from the Italeri kit version!

Very interesting, the side windows were armoured and the front had glass/plastic windows only. Were all of them like this, or was this just done with some of them? Awesome model!

Thank you all for the nice comments, I'm happy that you like my work!

The front window was always protected by the removable armour you can see on the picture, folded on the cabin roof above the window. As far as I know, the side window armour was a field modification, only present on some vehicles.

I particularly like the crudeness of the rear fenders. Very nice engine detail, the slats in the engine covers add to the realism, although I would think there may be slightly less weathering then the outer panels. The depth of the lettering in the grill is distracting, it looks to be 3 or 4 inches deep. Overall a great example of an early war machine.
