Robert Hope those reviews help !

I would prefer a Tamyia kit with a metal gun barrel and maybe some PE side skirts over the Dragon version.
I love those Dragon kits, don't get me wrong but sometimes they have 25 tiny parts for the 3 part Tamyia equivalent.. I have several Dragon PzIV's, Tamyia & Tristar versions if you need anymore help let me know.

Which version do you plan to buy ?

thanks John - would like one with the scheurzen - dont mind Tamiya "simplicity" vs Dragon detail... have seen the PE skirts and they do look nice. Am thinking whichever it needs solid skirts - want to do one with 1/2 missing, bit of scarring, maybe odd painted ones (to show salvage or perhaps one white washed the rest not - some sort of individuality).... for the Tamiya would it be best to get AM tracks too - dont mind vinyl (have the PzII which I built last year)...

must admit i was tempted by the Dragon Mid J (saw it for about £15 off but still signigficantly more than the Tamiya)

will get one this month as a birthday pressie (so probably Tamiya as it will be from my in-laws) and that gives me a couple of months to get some AM (have storage and fuel drums... gonna get some balsa for salvaged wooden boards etc... go to town on it (unrealistic but "fun")

I'm planning a Panzer build for next project anyway. The time frame is just right too. I might have to make this my first campaign.

I am in with coveralls on. Not too sure which to build, depends upon what the repair shop coughs up.

Well, Dragon's Pz.Kpfw.III Ausf.J, kit #6394 is on it's way to me.
I have some Aber PE and metal barrel in mind.
The Pz.Kpfw III Ausf.J with 5cm KwK/L60 gun and spaced armour from North Africa to be exact.

This should be fun. I'm looking forward to it.

I got a Panzerkampfwagen I Ausf.A ohne Aufbau With Engine & Compartment Detail from Tristar. When is the launch date for us to start? It is calling my name to open the box.

Count me in. I have a couple that I can build for this campaign. Either the Cyberhobby Pz III Ausf L - Vorpanzer, Tamiya Stug III B, or a Dragon Pz III Ausf N. But either way, I think this will be a great campaign.

I have started both kits. I highly recommend the III J. The wheels are not multiple parts or adjustable on either. So, the real difference is the barrel and the fact that the J has spaced armor.

Hi to all!

Though I'm not yet finished my previous campaigns (What else could one expect for a modeller but to go on and on and on...) here we go. I've on my stash a certain kitty (Dragon's "King Tiger" w/Porsche turret) In great need to go outdoors!
May the (modelling) Force be with us!
Regards
Javier

I see Gary's going Eastern Front all the way ... I'm guessing another awsome build.. that's a great choice there!
Congrats on your Tiger !! Great build.
