The WWI Belgian SAVA
« on: December 18, 2010, 08:47:29 PM »
The SAVA (Société Anversoise de Véhicules Automobiles) was an automitrailleuse build near Antwerp. It was a good little vehicle, used by th Belgians during all the WWI. Anecdotic to say that a vehicle crossed accidentally the Dutch frontier, was interned, used by the Dutch army but sent back to Belgium after the war...

The kit I'm presenting here is at 1/72 scale and from Retrotracks (http://www.retrokit.net/). It's a teeny one, but a little jewel...
I've built that kit in 8 days only, during my holidays. There was some PE parts, for the wheels and the belt for the reserve wheels...





















With that kit I won in 2009 the IPMS-Belgium Challenge...
Hope you like it!

Thank you, Letipapa. I must say that building that kit was a pure moment of happyness...
As I've explained to Srecko, I don't own the kit anymore: Dominique Jadoul liked it so much that I gived him my SAVA, so he can place it on his Retrotracks stands during the expos.
He offered me another SAVA, that is not built yet but will be on a diorama with Domi's WWI Belgian infantrymen...
