Tamiya 1/48 Panzer III Ausf. L
If you're an armor modeler that really looks forward to the painting and weathering stage, you can never go wrong with Tamiya's 1/48 scale kits--hiqh quality, low parts count and detail that compares to larger scale kits. After doing some photo research on Afrika Korps tanks it was obvious that stowage, particularly fuel cans, was very common. I used the chipping technique to make it look like a well worn tank and then applied a range of AK weathering powders for the dust effects. I replicated the sand on the base with AK snow effects painted with the same powders.
