Nice looking Stuart. You should rotate the pics to be upright.

Pic #3 is upside down and maybe next time you could put the pictures in build/sequence order. With that out of the way, I tip my hat to you on a great build. I'm very impressed with the weathering. Two questions, did the PE come with the kit if not what is it and where did you get the barrels?

Well done! I am working on the same build now. Basepaint applied. Moving on to decals and weathering. I hope to achieve results similar to yours. Very realistic weathering!!

Thank you for your nice comments. The MG barrels were from three sources which I'm updating in the project's inventory. I did not use turned aluminum gun barrel because the one provided with the model was much better looking.. I think it is slide-molded.

All the PE used in this project was from ET Model. However, I just don't like simulated grills! the turret hatches and engine doors handles were made from copper wire. The antena was from a broken guitar string. The tow cable was made from copper .... cable.

I was a bit disappointed with the kit's decals as only one set covered my project subject. Besides, I thought that yellow was too bright for a sun-exposed vehicle. So, I made or painted all markings including the yellow band around the turret. I also added some notorious foundry markings which show in many M3 photographs.

I had a lot of fun building this kit. It is accurate and the fitting is superb! Probably I'll make another one with interiors sometime in the future.
