Italeri German Motorcycles and Sidecars - Update

A year later..................I've finally finished the Italeri Motorbikes and sidecar combos

The big car in the background is a Hasegawa Mercedes that I rescued from a pile of old kits in a box and found a nice canvas roof from the spares box that fitted perfectly. After taking this photo, I've realised that the paint on one of the wheels has either chipped off, or I missed that bit when painting :-(

I was given this set for Christmas by a friend.

Nicely detailed set, though the figures are a little on the big side like all of the new 1/72 scale figures Italeri is producing.

I changed a few heads to give them all helmets and I'll be using them for the 1940 campaign in France - I know the uniforms are all wrong, but no-one will notice too much (hopefully) and I'll be painting them up in Field-Grey uniforms wth Panzer Grey bikes and sidecars.

The grey plastic vehicle is one I had spare, it's a Hasegawa kit if I'm not mistaken, and so I used it with a couple of spare figures.

The figure with the binoculars has a helmet grafted on from the accessories that come with the Revell German 105mm Gun & Crew.


  1. Awesome John. Thats really a nice recon group..

  2. Hey, thanks Iván !

    By the way, that old staff car goes a long way back - from the time when we first got gaming with CDIII.
