Stephen,
Your P3 is absolutely world class. Thanks for taking the time to post pictures and tutorials of your build, that takes considerable skill and time! I eagerly await your next project, and hope it is an Armortek tank you share with us. thanks for keeping us inspired and entertained!
Best regards,
Bob

Stephen

Outstanding work, lavishly recorded and explained.

Just for the record, and ignoring the time taken creating the blog, how many hours have you spent on the PzIII?

regards, Fabrice

Stephen,

Your build is wonderful and you shared it with all of us-Thank You!

The look and feel really like the real thing, how many times did I question if it was the real thing or your work. I had to look at the backround to tell!

Great work! My only regret it that it is done.

Thank you and good luck!

Brian

Hi Stephen,

Sorry you missed out on the prizes. We had a good time in Ireland but I could have done with a full size tank not a sports car to travel the roads over there absolutely diabollical !!!! Time to get the Comet out of the boxes now then !!!

An amasing and inspirational Panzer 111 build to follow Stephen and I was glad I was
their to see her in the flesh.
I will still be often going back to view your build to pick up techniques to try and follow
and as a yard stick to aim for.
Cheers
Phil

It was such a relief to see the sun today that I abandoned the workshop to give Hauptman Stotten a run out in the Pz III. Not sure the track marks on the lawn were all that welcome.

Re: Pz III New Build - MIG Mud

Post by Stephen White » Sun Apr 06, 2014 11:34 am

Thinking I'd spruce up the Pz III Ausf N for Tiger Day, I decided to try the relatively new MIG Mud, from MIG Productions. It's an acrylic mastic which comes in 75ml jars. There are currently two shades, European and Sub-Saharan, in two varieties wet and dry mud and in two grades, fine or rough, so eight types in total.

I ordered one of each texture in the rough grade think that something intended for 1/35th would need to scale up for 1/6th but I think the fine might be just as good for fine detail. The mud couldn't be easier to use, just slap it on with an old brush and work it into the shape needed. You can also combine the shades to give some variation. It dries rock solid in about three hours.

My Pz III from 15 Pz Div was operating in the very wet and muddy spring of 1943 in Tunisia, far from sandy, desert conditions and the few photos I've got show this particular vehicle covered in mud, wet and dry dust, so I thought the additional mud added to the overall effect I was looking for - a combination of dusty, dry and wet mud. MIG Mud couldn't be easier to use and works well. The Sub-Saharan dry shade is a very ochre colour, which will be just the job for the Vietnam Australian Centurion, when I get round to it.
