MiniArt 1/35 Pz III Ausf D


Recommended Posts

It's looking great Rob, it's now really taking shape, you have done the suspension and tracks really well, they are complicated but worth the effort. Now looking forward to seeing you complete the construction..

This is really an aside, but in one of the Russian language books on trophy vehicles there was a Wespe in Soviet markings.  I don't recall which book, but it certainly was an interesting variation to normal Wehrmacht machines.  - Kind of like a German T-34, if you get my drift.

went with the full floor - know it is not accurate but i like it... and rear boxes done (just placed for now).... some small fiddly parts (and more to come with the main gun), not that you will see much of it

Looking good Rob....I like the boxes on the rear, nice detail.....and I know the feeling of internal detail not being seen much.....nice work, keep it up.

quick bit of white, detail painting and grey scuffs... as you can't see a great deal I probably wont do too much more (if anything) on the interior, maybe some dust and muck around the bottom of the supports and box on the floor

Nice going Rob, it's looking really good. For a non interior model Miniart still give you a fair bit to play with. So far everything looks great...

grey on... not quite as neat as I wanted but I think a good base. Should be able to gloss and decal this week

more work - tracks on, more small parts on, found out I had only made 4/5 track runs for the frontal armour, 5th made (not as long as it should be) so needs painting... Not going for heavily weathered so matt varnish on body and the wooden boxes to finish
