The casemate basically sits right ontop of the Panzer III upper hull. 

In this kit you have to remove the entire front armor plate including the ball machine gun and drivers view port. The kit provides replacement plates in cast metal that mate up with the gun shield.

I opened up the inner hull underneath the casemate just to give me more room to work with.

This tank will have elevation, recoil and barrel flash, Taigen steel gears and a track tensioner.

I've been wanting to one of these for years, but too many projects and not enough time. Where did you get the kit?


That Panzer III looks familiar too. Wink

It's a Panzer Parts kit, and it's pretty reasonably priced too.

Hehe does it? I keep hearing that... is it a veteran of the field? Razz

I ordered a bunch of small hinges as the kit ones would have been a pain... so hopefully I can get the hatches working.

Added the flashing that was around the base of the casemate. It came partially molded in resin but on the actual vehicles it extended past the base, so I sanded the molded bits off and made my own out of aluminium. 

Used my trusty drywall gap filler putty to fill in a few places, and add a weld seam line on the rear. This stuff doesn't have much strength at all but it's very easy to sand and shape for moderate fill jobs... add some CA glue after it's cured and it get's pretty tough.

Progress!

Got my hinges in the mail.. not bad, more than enough hinges for this tank for about $6 inc. shipping. Yay eBay.

I also ordered a pin vise / micro hand-drill after watching Dean do all sorts of fine details that my full sized power drill isn't really meant for.. once that arrives I'll drill out the hinges and glue in some bolt or rivet heads too. I simply don't trust the hinges just being glued Wink

...and now the painting begins. Again Krylon Ultra-Flat camo green from Crappy Tire. Love this stuff.

I bought a can of Krylon Clear Coat, Satin finish to see how that works.. Don't really need it for this tank but if it seals in details like rust, mud and whatever extra decals go on then I'll use it more also.

You and me brother....... I swear by that stuff. I actually pick-up the satin can yesterday and almost bought it. Too bad they don't make ultra flat otherwise I would be all over it. Let me know how it looks and whether you need to dull it again afterwards.

Hurrah for new parts! Got a nice big box in the mail today including a bunch of new gearboxes and idler-tensioners from rctank.de (one set for my new-ish Stug)

Gearboxes are steel with final drive ball bearings. I have this same set in my Chi-Nu Kai, T-34 and Panzer III

Installed the new gears, metal idlers from Artistic Hobbies came with ball bearings and M3 screws and a bushing. They're on rock solid and spin very freely. This is the single best, and cheapest, upgrade that a Panzer 3 should get.
