Dans les situations critiques, quand on parle avec un calibre bien en pogne, personne ne conteste plus. Y'a des statistiques lŗ-dessus.

All I can say is look at the miniatures you have or not have which maybe the case. You may need to cut a leg/arm here or there to fit with the seating/deck plan. Look at the crews from both the Italian and German as well as their uniforms are quite generic in some cases, but not all. I view this from my point of view when I'm just using Perry Miniatures when converting miniatures for this sort of thing.

Best wishes,

H

Wow, if I hadn't seen your picture I'd have never even considered that car... the shop photos make it look like complete garbage.  :o
