Panzer IIIs are on the assembly line at Tankoberg…

July 12, 2011

…here’s the first one off and ready for combat:    . This is Revell’s Pz Kpfw III Ausf. L kit (#03133) which is currently out of print – a real shame. The four other kits which are still being assembled on my hobby table are original prints of the Pz Kpfw III Ausf. M (#03117), which was re-released late last year or early this year.

I didn’t do an aerial for two reasons: 1) I forgot; 2) The aerial fixture provided is too weak for me to drill, and given the extensive drybrushing I’ve already done, I don’t want to glue on a new kitbashed fixture that could take drilling as it will stand out too much when I try to paint it to match the rest of the model. So all these Pz IIIs will go aerial-less, but the Pz IVs waiting their turn will definitely have them.
