Leonardo da Vinci’s design for an armored car never got any further than the model stage — so there’s no scale on the kit from Academy. Michael says, “This vehicle would be a hypothetical example used in defense of the city state of Florence during the Battle of Gavinana in 1530. The idea was to use early Italian camouflage over a salt treatment of bronze plate. I cut open one plate to show it at rest, with Florentine piping on the tent. There is a City of Florence decal on the other side.”
