Thank you Luke.
It's 1/16 scale, all in brass and other metals, fully scratchbuild.

Stefano,

Brilliant! It's almost a shame to have covered your amazing metal work with paint. Impressive as all-get-up!

For those that haven't followed along from the beginning, you really do need to look through Stefano's build here .

Stefano: truley an amazaing bit of art work. With a differrent back ground would be impossible to tell it's a scale replication. Good work.

stefano,
Gorgeuous!! the only other word that comes to mind is exquisite! I've followed your build from almost the beginning. What a wonderful work of art. If I had just a 1/10 of your skill, I'd be happy. Truly fanstastic work!

But I have two questions.

First, where is the piece going? Is it off to a collection or museum, or off to your shelf?

Second, (and I must admit that I am being a typical American) now what? What are you going to do for an encore? You've raised the bar pretty high for yourself!!

Thank you again for sharing!!

the model will not go into a museum, but it's only for me.
His location is near the other gun, the Skoda howitzer I build a couple of years ago.
My next project probably will be an Italian tank of the IIWW ever in 1/16 scale, but I have to look for documentation and decide which I'll build.
Thanks all!

Great darn job Dude.
This has to be the best Metal kit I have seen in a long time,heck in anytime.
That metal wheel is the killer don't think it could be done in no other media.
plus your posting of 16,777,215 posts is really a good deal.

Bravo

I want remeber that it's not a kit, but a fully scratchbuild metal model in 1/16 scale.

I want show you the wheel at the beginning, one of the first thing I build, about 1 and half year ago.

My mistake on the kit deal.
How did you get that web pattern in between the wheel like that.?

Edit I see now a resin casting great work.

Excellent work, all you need now is scale ammo to take it hunting. Model shows would never be the same again.
