Tamiya 1/48 Marder III DAK

June 16, 2019 · in Armor · · 5 · 2.5K

Another very nice armor kit. Did not do a bunch of research, but went with a scheme and markings supplied in the kit. Tried to represent how it may have been painted by spraying the whole thing Panzer Grey, then adding an impromptu spritzing of Africa Braun to help hide the very high silhouette. Only A/M (EDIT- Forgot to mention the RB barrel...I'm not that good at eliminating a seam and trueing a plastic barrel!) was about half of the Hauler set... I never seem to be able to use everything in a P-E set. Seems to me P-E manufacturers try to add a lot of details that just don't look good in the two dimensional nature of that medium. Thanks for looking!

  2. Wow. Great job on a vehicle I likes. Nice interior work and spray job.

  3. Great work, Stan.

    I'll bet the real ones really "Rocked" that little beastie when they fired! That's a lot of gun on a little chassis.

  4. Nicely done, Stan

  5. That's a great-looking target, Stan! Nicely done.
