Old Glory CD-363 Panzer III E
Hoody hoo! I'm back on the paint wagon after having to take some time of for family issues. Here you see my six new Panzer III Ausf. Es. The hatches on these were a complete bitch-- not too hard to glue open with the commander in the hatch, but basically impossible to model closed. The rear is sculpted round and irregularly, making it exceedingly difficult to fit into the hatch and glue flat. "Screw it," I said, and just left the hatches off. Also, I have photographed one of these bad boys with their puny cousin, the Panzer I Ausf. A.
