Rommel visits

September 5, 2022 · in Armor · · 11 · 0.9K

This is the Tamiya Panzer III L with the Masterbox figure set. A sweet, enjoyable mostly OOB build with a little scratching due to the open turret hatches, it's loosely based on the famous photo of Rommel and a crew on their Panzer III J so there was not a great deal of planning needed for it. Painted with the last of my enamel Model Masters Grunbraun as was the crew albeit with a little grey, white, and yellow mixed in the base coats for variation amongst the uniforms. I did this in early 2020.
