With a plan to play an Eastern Front game later this month in mind, I decided to spruce up a couple of second-hand Panzer IIIs that had been sitting unfinished in storage.
Number 125 is an Ausf L straight out of the (Matchbox) box. I acquired it some years ago from a friend who, I suspect had built it as a kid.
Number 126 is a conversion of the Matchbox kit to an earlier model (Ausf F?) with shorter 50mm gun and without the additional armour on the mantlet. It was part of a batch I picked up from a bring and buy somewhere.
My recipe for late war German Dunkelgelb came from a helpful posting (by Piers Brand I think) on The Guild. The base coat is GW Charadon Granite. The vehicle then gets a semi-drybrush of GW Khemri Brown and then several heavy drybrush coats of Vallejo Iraqi Sand. My chosen colours for the green and red-brown camo are Vallejo Reflective Green and Saddle Brown respectively.
