Hola Antonio!!

Thank you so much for your answer. I hope don't disturb you, but, could you share with me the colour chart from the soldier?

Hi, all
Thanks, by the comments
The colors, that I used, were Humbrol 163 (Green) and Tamiya XF-59 (Sand).

Like the fact that you used the vehicle in an unusual setting, Argentina, and thought you did a great job converting the soldier from German to Argentinian.

Hi Omar!

Great job!, well done!!

I'm building a similar one, from Yellow Cat resin models.

I'd like to know, which colours references did you use for the car and for the miniature?

Thank you so much!!

I had have to change the soldier by a sub officer, because I didn't have enough information about uniforms about that time, prinicialy about the colours of uniforms. The pictures that I have are all in black and white. After the time of the Crossley the Argentinan Army had a change of his uniforms and I do not fine pictures of the rigth year of when was that.
Also we have a problem, we have different clime, and the uniforms change accorder to the place that the unit was.
The final pictures of the figure:









The next time, I will show the final pictures of the model.-

It's true what Sigal Fogliani's book says (by the way, very good book). That's why, when I built mine, for the avoidance of doubt, I went for sure: I painted it green:

Greetings, and see you next time.



Juan
I used your model like one reference to make mine, thanks by share. I guess they are the only Armoured Car Vickers Crossley made for the Argentinian Army. I didn`t it in green because you had made that version.

I have the same doubts with the colours, the differents contrast in the pictures, show us razonables doubts, but the books of the milititary army of Argentian like of Ricardo Sigal Fogliani confirm that had only two colours. A mistery...

The version in black and white:


The model in its base:

Well done, looks like both kit mfg. and builder did a good job. It's also a real breath of fresh air from the endless parade of King Tigers.

Very good model. A neat and correct construction. It is good to see these models a little "rare". With regard to the colors, there is an old discussion whether these vehicles had 2 or 3 colors. The three colors would be brown, green and sand:

Thank you so much for showing your model. Greetings.

Excellent work. I like how you have just the right amount of chipping to look like a vehicle that is used, but not abused.
