I have posted this subject a few times before but not too many people responded and I was hoping that this time it would be different. I just got an interior kit for my Tamiya pzkpfw. IIIL from th Tank Workshop and it looks great. The only problem is that it is going to be difficult to show off since the "inspection" hatches(or the driver radio operators hatches) are not detailed on the underside. I was wondering if anyone had any photos of the undersides of these hatches and/or instructs on how to detail them. They would be much appreciated.
Thanks,
Andrew

Hi

I just got the Achtung Panzer book on the Stug III.
There are pics of the hatches in there.
Later model Pz III chassis have locking clasps on the inside of the hatches.
I am scannerless right now, so I can't help with the pics.

If you can, get a copy of Achtung Panzer on the Pz III or Stug. They are great references for this kind of detail.
