Ryefield Model's 1/35 Panzer III Ausf J


Recommended Posts

Hi all, here's my go at the RFM 1/35 Panzer III Ausf J. It will be an OOB build.

 

I'll be building the kit which does not come with the interior to simplify things. So far I have gotten the suspension sorted and assembled the wheels.

Wow! You are making excellent progress on this very nicely detailed kit. The vision blocks for the cupola are little works of art. Are you going to leave the hatches on the cupola open? Seems a shame to lose all that detail.

Kind regards,

Thanks for the compliments everyone. The kit has been great to build so far. I don't plan to glue the hatch shut so that cupola detail can still be seen after completion.

 

I finally completed the tracks and gave the parts a coat of Mr Mahogany Surfacer. Should be a nice base to spray dark yellow on.

Nice work!

The dark yellow over the mahogany base look really good.

Nice colour you’ve got going on there. What did you think of the kit overall? I’ve just seen a review of this kit with the interior and have to say I’m tempted despite not normally being a fan of interior kits. Be interested to know what someone who’s built the basic kit thinks of it.

The kit built up beautifully with no issues whatsoever. Decals could be better researched though. But I guess there’s always aftermarket sets.
