  1. This was my project for the MTO GB. It was a fun kit to build – as most of Tamiya’s 1/48 Armour kits seem to be. Pz.III No.04 was part of the 501st Heavy Panzer Battalion, which was part of the Afrika Korps in North Africa. Following the Allied landing in French North Africa the Battalion, with its 16 Panzer IIIs, arrived in Tunisia between November 1942 and January 1943. Initially only three Tiger Is of the 501st landed at Tunis on 23 November 1942. These first elements of the battalion, along with four Panzer IIIs, were organized with other units into Kampfgruppe Lueder. The
  2. Evening folk's,another of my all time favourite kits Airfix's old tool Vb.Lord knows how many of these I've built since it was a new release this is the second this year,now before the flaming torches and pitchforks are dug out I seem to recall Airfix molded the prop blades back to front certainly they don't look right anyway here she is and thank's for looking. Here's Airfix's old tool 109 my other MTO GB build. And the other of this years builds of the kit.
  3. This was the fourth kit I made for the MTO GB - the first 3 being German tanks. It forms the final part of a small diorama called 'Kampfgruppe Tunesien'. This was only my second Fw190 kit build and I decided I wanted to make it because I had thoroughly enjoyed building the (slightly tricky) Airfix 1/72 new tool kit and came to appreciate what a great looking aircraft it is. I used Tamiya's A3 Fw190 kit and slightly modified it to represent Fw190 A4 ’Black Double Chevron' as flown by Hauptmann Adolf Dickfeld in Tunisia. As I wanted to use it 'in flight' I had to find a w
  4. Pz.Kpfw.III Ausf.L No.1 - 10th Panzer Division 1943 - Tunisia EDIT 03/05/17: a while back I said I would include some photos of this Pz.III on the scenic base I built for this and the two other tanks I made in the same GB. I have included them at the bottom of this first post. The Ausf.L version of the Pz.Kpfw. III was produced from July 1942 and was similar to previous versions. Armament consisted of an improved, long barreled Kwk50 L/60 tank gun and two 7.92mm MG34 machine guns. The front armor thickness was increased to 57mm plus 20mm thick spaced armor was added to
  5. This was my third tank build for the MTO GB and again I thoroughly enjoyed making it although there were a couple more minor issues with it's construction than previous Tamiya 1/48 builds or the AFV Club Tiger 1 I made for the same GB. I made this kit to represent Tiger 1 No. 731 'Norbert' in Tunisia. Kit: 1/48 Tamiya Tiger 1 Initial Production Paints: Humbrol, Revell and Citadel all applied by brush Extras: Stretched sprue aerial and some Hauler PE WIP: Here Diorama RFI: Here
  6. When I was planning what I wanted to build for the MTO GB I was initially thinking of just making a couple of German tanks based in Tunisia. Then Jack G mentioned that the units did tend to fight in battlegroups and, in fact, that In early 1943 the eleven surviving tigers of 501 were allocated to 504. From there the project grew and now includes two Tiger 1s, a Pz.III Ausf.L and an Fw.190 A4 in a small diorama which includes some figures. The kits: Kit 1: 1/48 Tamiya Panzerkampfwagen III Ausf.L as Pz.Kpfw.III Ausf.L No.1 - 10th Panzer Division 1943 Paints: Hum
  7. Panzerkampfwagen VI, Tiger I (E), SdKfz 181 No.131 in Tunisia Possibly one of the most famous Tiger 1s, 131 saw service in Tunisia where it was eventually captured by the British 48th Royal Tank Regiment during World War II. It is now at The Tank Museum in Bovington and is currently the only operating Tiger tank in the world. This tank is the second completed model of a scene I am building for the MTO GB. The first photos were just taken on my chipboard table top with a desert scene propped up behind. I will eventually make a proper base. The kit was 'modified' from the
