Munitionspanzer III

Scale: 1/72

Model kit used: My own resin cast

This model represents a version for transportation of ammunition to the firing line built on a chassis Pz.Kpfw III Ausf. J of an older variant with smooth covers of an engine bay. It is again a conversion from models Pz.Kpfw III Ausf. L by Revell and Pz.Kpfw III Ausf. G by Attack. The German army used these turretless vehicles mainly on the Eastern front and the total amount of re-built vehicles reached approx. 110 units. I added boxes and other equipment of the tank according to a photograph. I covered the whole in a hull with a tarpaulin. I decided to build his specific vehicle because I was interested in protective sheets hung only on one side of the tank. I tried to reconstruct a camouflage and a marking. The model was weathered by oils after spray of the basic varnish, camouflage spots and edges were lightened by a dry-brush.
