Here is my very first entry into the Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge. I honestly wasn't sure i was going to make this one with all the issues with my back and my camera and light box deciding they didn't want to cooperate - none the less i got something done.
A Rubicon plastic Panzer 3 tank for my bolt action DAK army.
Here are a couple of side views.
And here a couple of close up shots.
I'm pretty happy with how it turned out - 3 hours of work spread over the last 5 days. This was a great little model to put together and paint up and I'm looking forward to my next Rubicon model.
I think a 28mm vehicle is 15 points for the competition - I'm sure ill be corrected if I'm wrong.
Till next week. Mark :)
Oooh, that is a rather tasty Panzer Mk III.
Absolutely top notch work Mark! Your weathering is brilliant, especially the chipping and spotting of rust. The only thing I might suggest is adding a little more dust to the bottom of the chassis. In looking at period pictures of these vehicles in North Africa you can see that they were often virtually caked with sand and dust.
And you are correct, this Panzer will give you a base of 15 points, but I'm going to give you a few extra for the excellent detail work. Well done.
