Over the last years, I did not build any Italeri kit and now I had a great expectation since the Sahariana is now featuring a completely new tooled mold, so looking inside the box, I found a detailed static display model depicting the model 42 Desert Vehicle including resin and etched parts, vinyl tires which look a little soft on tread detail, two resin crew figures and a highly detailed reference manual containing a brief history with black-and-white photos, full-color assembly guide for photo etched parts, and camouflage painting guide.


At first, I decided this kit would be built totally out of the box with no additional parts, but, as you’ll see later, this was impossible.


I started following the instruction steps.

Steps 1, 2 & 3

Pay close attention to the alignment of the chassis and to parts 2A and 3A .

With the help of very fine grid sandpaper and patience you will have to remove the flashes from part 10B .
