Here are some pictures of one of my latest projects, its the MiniArt Panzer III Ausf. B/D. Its quite a good kit out of the box, with some nice stowage and Im really happy that this more obscure is available in plastic!

Some of the suspension parts drove me quite mad, being quite fragile and complicated. I had to superglue some of the boogies as I accidentally broke them off while building.

The tracks, which took a lot of time to clean up and put together looks fantastic! 96 links for each side plus the spares on the front...

The wooden boxes on the back looks good in my opinion and are not glued into place yet as its gonna be easier to paint them separately. The tank will be painted in the all gray scheme, depicting a tank that fought in Finland during the spring of 1942 and will be placed in a small diorama, snowy diorama.

Hope you'll like it so far and leave a comment if you like!

The model looks great! But I do have a question: where did you find reference on the German forces in Finland being equipped with these tanks? I'd love to know more! Looking forward to seeing your diorama.
