Panzer III Ausf N

When I saw the box of this kit, I knew I had to paint one. Especially the desert colour variant that was used in Tunisia.

So assembly wasn't too difficult, I tried a different approach by not gluing on the tracks till I paint the road wheels.

I tried colour modulation this time, out of curiosity and the urge to learn it, I somehow managed to pull it off.

Before weathering

After weathering. I would admit that I actually went a little overboard with the weathering. I'm not really used to painting bright colours, but I'm adapting. Also, I've went the extra mile and put on a little antenna in the slot for the tank.

These pictures were taken in the store, they weren't that good.

Here are some better pictures with better lighting.

Hetz Hetz Hetz Hetz Hetz

Yeah, I've been chanting "Hetz Hetz Hetz Hetz Hetz" all the time I was working on this tank. Assembly was easy, but painting it with hard edged camo really took a lot of time.

I've also put some effort into painting the tank commander that comes along with this kit.

Panzer Kampfwagen IV Ausf D

I felt like working on some tanks temporarily, since I've been painting so much Dark Eldar and Eldar recently. So I thought it would be nice to just paint one up for funsies. I took my time and this time I took almost a week to finish this tank.
