Semovente Self-Propelled Gun

Lego Semovente da 75/18 Self-Propelled Gun

We’ve written about Italy’s disastrous North African campaign during the Second Wold War before, so we’re skipping the history today to get straight to the MOC, a Semovente da 75/18 self-propelled gun (tank?), as built by Rebla of Flickr. Rebla’s mini-figure scale model recreates the Semovente beautifully, and even includes (sort of) working suspension on its tracks. There’s more to see of Rebla’s wonderful World War 2 tank (including a rather debonaire-looking driver) on Flickr – click on the link above to self-propel your way there.

Panzerkampfwagen II. Catchy

PA (Semper Fi) has created this wonderful WW2 Panzer II complete with desert camouflage. It’s a fitting tribute to the fighting in Africa, which is often ignored by builders who tend to favour Europe as their battleground. View it on Flickr.
