Thanks Airbrushler and Strato50 both your comments are appreciated..........thumbs up thumbs up 

The build has slowed down a little bit as I am waiting for the parts for Welshdragon now to finish it off, but I have stuck on the decals on the side plates...Very Happy

Did this version have side skirts of any kind? Stug's were a bit all over the place with that sort of thing. Just wondering if you were going to carry over the camo to the lower hull as well.

Speaking of lower hulls, my PnzIII Asiatam lower is my longest-serving and probably favourite unit thus far. They really need to release a Panther version!!

Hey mate,

No I wasn't going to mainly because I plan on doing the lower hull fairly muddy and thought it would be mostly covered.......Question Question Question 
What do you think, I welcome any input good or bad.... and I agree on the Asiatam lower hulls they are nice and I too wish they released a Panther version.

Cheers Ken

Are you using enamels for the chipping? I like,

Hi Strato50,

No I am using acriylics, the lighter colour is just Tamiya deck tan XF 55 and the darker colour I mixed using hull red and matt black with a bit of silver in it. Then after I did the chipping when both colours were dry I rubbed a little bit of graphite power on it to give it the metal look in parts.

Cheers Ken

Sweeeet !!!

Might want to tone down the spare wheels on the rear, they look to new/shiny.

Love all the muddy details. What did you use for the mud? Real mud? lol

Hey Stinger,
Yeah the spare wheels are temps as I am waiting for metal ones to come from welshdragon. As for the mud I used Tamiya diorama texture paint.

Looks awesome Ken... Keep those pics coming.


With the exception of a few different tanks once in a blue moon, we get to see the same ones every tank meet. So, have your club post their tanks so we can see 'em here too...

I do see one problem with the tank. You own it, not me. Ya know, come to think of it, it's really ugly, you should sell it and just do you a favor, I will take it off your hands...lol

Nice, very nice.

Hey guys well its time to revamp this beast.... I decided I wanted more damage and a different look so here is where it is at.... still got stuff to do but I will post up pics as I go...
I have changed the electronics to Tamiya Panzer 4 units and I still run servo recoil and working notek light.

Cheers Ken
