The mighty Panzer III! You can clearly see evidence of my first DISASTROUS painting attempt. I used Silly Putty to try and mask the original, botched camo job. Dont ever do that under any circumstances. I'm adding that to the wargaming TACSOP...
|I tried some "chipping" and rust with a small foam thing, but it still just looks like dirt.|
|dont even ask about the TC. He got all blobbed up with paint from the 2 go-arounds under the spray can...|
|Look at that unsightly crap all over the skirts!|
These will serve either as Tiger escorts or as their own independent unit. I only plan on buying a box or two of these (PSC REALLY did this kit right! They were my favorite kit by far to assemble).
I love the Panzer III. It's one of my all time favorite tanks of the war. Next 2 or 3 I will not make the same mistakes again. I was thinking for 1 vehicle, I will paint it in the same scheme as my Tigers, with a slightly darker green pattern first.
Tonight was the conclusion of a 15mm Black Powder game and boy was that a mess. Command and Control a huge issue and I learned some really important lessons.
Also have a gaggle of T-34s to post as well. More to follow!!!
