The first model of the series "My first model kit"

This is the first Zvezda snap-kit.

I think, this kit is produced for wargamers, although the box lists it as "My First Model Kit", with 63 parts.

The model is going without glue, but a high level of quality, typical for Zvezda.

For beginners especially will appreciate the rotating turret and ease of assembly.

The first Italeri "Fast Assembly"-kit!

The "fast assembly"-kits from Italeri was for a long time in my radar, but the models produced till now wasn"t on my wish list, till I noticed this one:

Autocannone RO3 with 90/53 AA Gun in a 1/72 scale!

As usual the information from Wiki:

The Cannone da 90/53 was an Italian designed cannon, and one of the most successful anti-aircraft guns to see service during World War II. It was used both in an anti-aircraft role and as an anti-tank gun.

The designation "90/53" meant that the gun had a 90 mm caliber and a barrel 53 caliber-lengths long.

Fifty or so 57 were ordered to be mounted on heavy Lancia trucks and designated Autocannoni da 90/53.

The box includes 8 figures:

There are 2 sprues the above for the truck and the below for the AA gun:

At last I got one and build it!

and from the opposite side:

The rest of figures and the whole model will be painted and altered!
