My adventure into the 1/72 scale part 1

  1. My adventure into the 1/72 scale part 1
  2. My adventure into the 1/72 scale part 1.5 (fail)
  3. German Sturmgeschutz III Aust. F

So, I'm planning a new diorama that includes at least two tanks.

This is my first scale tank, it's the M4A3 Medium Tank from . I must admit that this tiny scale is a bit strange to work with and the build looks better on my desk than it does in the pictures. The camera exposes imperfections that my old eye don't pick up while working.

But again, this is a learning curve, so I need to take it step by step. I put this aside for now and begin work on my next 1/72 model that is the Jagdpanzer , also from Trumpeter.

  1. Great looking build, Geir, but you'll have to point out the "imperfections", because I sure don't see 'em. Nice work !

  2. VERY well done, Geir! I like the bullet pock-marks on the front slope & turret you gave it.. You didn't go overboard, like some folks will do.

    Bravo !

  3. i absolutely love it

  4. Imperfections! Man I thought this was at least 1/48 scale, great job !
