Panzer III
The Panzer III was designed as a main battle tank, and originaly mounted the 1.5 inch cannon. Commanding generals, however, wanted a more powerful 2 inch KwK cannon, which was eventualy mounted. The models A through D were made to test different kinds of running gear, and in the Ausf. E the Panzer III took on its traditional look with six medium wheels. It continualy suffered from being underarmed, and although it was eventualy upgraded all the way to a 3 inch L/24 cannon, it could not compare to the simial Panzer IV. The space of the turret prevented it from mounting the long barrel 3 inch KwK cannon, and form 1942 it was no longer a match against the Russian T-34. It was a foward looking design however, and was used both by the Germans and the Russians as an assualt gun chasis. Perhaps thats part of the reason I made this, so I could have the chasis for a Stug. I enjoyed building this and although as I post it now I realize many detials are off, (due probably to lack of research) I would say this is probably the best tank I've posted so far. But thats just because I haven't posted my Tiger yet! Please enjoy and comment! =)
About this creation

The profile shot makes it look a little tall, (I think my crew compartment needs to be lower) but when I look at the main picture its not as bad.






The fuel tank added on the back was added as an after thought, but I'm quite proud of it.


This is the 3 inch short gun. Is this considered the assualt gun model or is it the other way around? What defines an assault gun anyway?




As you can see a clever photography trick allowed me to be missing one wheel in most of my shots, whith out you knowing it.

The Nazi flag in the picture on my homepage is being held by a group of 101st Airborne paratroopers, as a souvenier, after they have liberated Hitler's private mountain retreat. =)
