They are superb. I've just posted some pictures in the Pz III forum and I think they transform the hull. Can't recommend them highly enough. Thanks Steve.

Castellated Nuts

I've just received Steve Winstone's castellated nuts and tow rope brackets and I'm seriously happy with the quality. The castellated nuts transform the hull sides, I was really surprised at the difference they make. Here is a comparison of two of the return roller and shock absorber mountings: http:...

Rear mudguards and towing hook

In between trips overseas, I've finished the rear mudguards with their restraining hooks: http://i390.photobucket.com/albums/oo349/bartokwhite/DSC04909.jpg Then got started on the domed cover and tow hook on the rear hull panel. These were fitted from July 1941onwards with the intention of giving th...

Adrian, as far as I can see, on the Pz III, only the type with the milled round top were used. But that's only on the evidence of the Bovvy vehicle so it may not be true of all Pz IIIs.

Castle Nut Quantities

Good afternoon down under Dale. I posted a list of the Pz III locations - you'll see it if you search on "castle nut quantities".

Best regards

Sarah - I had a request from Brian Leach which I've passed on by pm. Perhaps you might help him? Enjoy Bovvy - I can never spend enough time there.

Best regards

Magnificent Jeff - work of art with the Rommelkiste. And you build so quickly.

Mind sharing the names of your crew? I've only found one DAK panzer bloke, Herr Lerner. I don't recognise them, are the clothes from Dragon?

All the best.

Ok, so now I feel really dumb. Thanks for spotting that Adrian, I'd have missed it.

David Not sure why the pics disappeared - they're still in my Photobucket folder.

Phil Thanks for the useful link. No Comets were deployed to Korea. The sources which state they were are mistaking what were in fact Cromwells. These were manned by Royal Artillery crews who were employed as forward observers in the armoured battle groups. The only Comets to see operational service ...

Comet in Russia?

I was looking at Richie's post on the Stug III found in Russia (Pz III thread) and saw the YouTube item below. If I'm not mistaken, one of the hulks shown is a Comet. My limited knowledge of Russian suggests the items were found in the Leningrad area. So what is a Comet doing there? Is it a Comet? C...

Jeff - it's the little details that mark your Pz III out as one of the best. The indentations on the turret roof for the mounting bolts which held the torsion bar inside the turret which was used to counter-balance the heavier L60 gun would not be obvious but they're there. I'm following your build ...

David - try this. The Bovington Pz III, which is regularly driven. Hardly any rusting but a lot of smoke blackening.

Wonderful news Derek. So we can now anticipate another of your star builds. The Comet club is increasing by the day. With so little operational service, it will be interesting to see which vehicles people represent. They were in service post war in Hong Kong, South Africa, Eire etc. There is a myth ...

Adrian Here are the photos which show the original pattern of mesh for the Pz III: This is one of the Abedeen tanks. The woven mesh is found on both the engine intake grills and on the grills above the exhaust boxes: http://i390.photobucket.com/albums/oo349/bartokwhite/scan0013.jpg The grills above ...
