Rubicon Models: Panzer III Test Build
As for the instructions - they are very well done - very cleanly illustrated and easy to follow. The decals were also a very nice surprise and included marking for the Africa Corps which these Panzer III's will be modeled for. The plastic casting was VERY clean with really no mold lines on any warpage.
I went ahead and built the second (of three) panzer III and was surprised it only took me about 15 minutes to complete. Everything went together without a hitch and all of the hull seam points were gap free!
I doubt this will impact the finished model all that much. Painting will be delayed until the start of the Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge, which commences on December 5th.
All in all, I'd rate this kit a 9.9/10, which is superb - highly recommended!
