28s-CHW-109 - Gambassi Warehouse
28S-CHW-109 is a ‘28S’ 4Ground model kit, ‘28S’ means this kit is highly detailed inside and outside with many pre-painted parts.
Don Gambassi ’ to those in the know, or Mr Francesco Naprstek to everyone else, is doing well since he came home as a ‘Doughboy’, thanks in no small part to his youngest brother Petrus managing the legit’ front of their business through the war years along with their aging, Italian born, mother. And now! Luciano, Franco’s twin brother, has finally returned home, bringing his wartime animal wits and violet nature to these streets. Their future is just waiting for the ‘Gambassi Clan’ to carve their gangland fortune here in the heart of Chicago itself.
Their Police file says; Filled with patriotic homeland idealism by their Bohemian-American father, twins Franco and Luciano Naprstek sailed to Europe in 1915 and joined the ‘Družina’ in Russia that would become the legendary ‘Czechoslovak Legion’. When the Bolshevik army took power from ‘The White Russians’ Franco was wounded and evacuated via Arkhangelsk, he then made his transfer to the American army while in Great Britain.
Now ‘Lucky’ Luciano is also back but he is something else, he is not the man who left America full of idealism. ‘Lucky’ is a violent brute who was with the Czech Legion that fought the Germans at the Battle of Bakhmach. After that they had to fight their way clear of Bolshevik forces from the entire length of the Trans-Siberian Railway, At Vladivostok he said goodbye to his companions and joined the Americans there and so he came home on the first steamer bound for Alaska. I can not stress enough ‘Lucky’ and his kind are bringing bloody mayhem to this city and they must be STOPPED!
