Tom's Panzer lll Ausf L

IMG_2607.JPG Hello Everyone, I am new to this board and the 1/6 scale model world altogether. I needed a retirement hobby so I took the plunge and bought my first Armortek kit. I have been working on it for about 3 months now. I sprayed the final clear coat today and the crew was anxious to take it...

Re: Panzer III ausf L

Hi Bob,
I am new to all this. Let me know when there is a west coast event and I will try to attend. Is there a west coast club of some sort?

Being it is my first effort I am sure I will want to make changes and improvements later. Attached are a few pics of progress so far. I decided to try my hand at we...

Re: Batteries

Thanks for all the info guys. Very helpful. The Smartbatteries web site is great Brian. Looks like I will have to wait for the new option packs to arrive before deciding which batteries will fit. I suspect 2ea 12v 20ah batteries will do the job in series. I will need to purchase a charger too. Smart...

Which airbrush to buy

Hello, I am building A Panzer III ausf L. I have read all the threads on air brush makes and am now thoroughly confused. Can someone just tell me which make and model to buy? The threads I read mention the make but not the specific model. I will use it mostly for detail and camo work. I owned a Badg...
