Hello Guys,

Like to present to you my PzIII for an upcomming dio!
It's the Dragon PzIII Ausf.J initial production kit almost built oob. (even used the links!)
As I wanted to show almost all of the hatches open I decided to put some rundimetary interior into it, being only the drive line from cmk and the rest from scratch. Not that accurate, (but still!) as most of it can't be seen anyway, but if someone would look through the hatches something (reconizeable) is in there! The big wooden (enginedeck) box is also scratch, a typical item used on these tanks.
Painted it up with my usual approach with Tamiya acrylics, weathered with my own Humbrol filters and oils. The dryed mud is a mix of acrylics with dirt from the garden.

Soon it will be placed on the dio, thats why some of the roadwheels are 'floating'!















A taste (picture!) from home!


And Schatzi drives along with us!(on the gun cradle...)




WIP interior





Dio is coming along soon!
(edit; and yes, looking at the pics I have to do a couple of touchups )

Beautiful work!

Great job of detailing and weathering, Erik. I'm working on the same kit, same unit. Basic paint is done and I'm about to cut the pieces for the big storage box. You've done a great job of representing 623 as shown in that photo (which is new to me), and I really like the beautiful job you've done with the camo shelter half hanging out of the turret bin and your scratchbuilt interior parts. My own effort won't be nearly so ambitious (or impressive) as yours, but you've inspired me to reach a little farther than I planned to. I'm looking forward to seeing the completed dio.

Hi Erik, fabulous finish and paint job, the staining and weathering and all the minor details are great to look at. Mission accomplished !

You have done a good paint job and the damage looks realistic.

Beautiful piece Erik, that first pic had me fooled for a few long seconds! This model is very realistic looking IMHO. I especially love the personal touch of the photograph from home in the cupola. Looking forward to see the dio!

So realistic in every aspect - love the interior work! How did you get or make the photos of the women?

I rather think it is just an extremely well done picture of the finished kit itself

Superb job on the weathering. A realistic layer over a convincing dark grey base coat. The B&W photo sets the scene
One thought on the markings though. We're the kompanie colours not the same for rhombus and dragon emblem?

for the nice words.
Guess I fooled you with the photo as I always like to do a bit photoshopping to look like as it is a real pic
Looking forward to your Pz III
