Very late group build entry, Marder III.


Recommended Posts

Since I finished my Mustang, I decided to throw one more build at this group build. This is a Tamiya Marder III, Normandy. I got most of the hull done that first night, in all it took me about 14 hours to get through paint. This is a really simple kit to build, the only thing that took a little long we’re the dozen or so ejector marks I need to sand out of the interior, which is exposed in this kit.

You are a machine, I think you could have made the deadline, even when you stated in February :D. In fourteen hours I manage to go through the sprues after opening the box :secret:.

Will there be a dio, because I saw the Zündapp bike on your bench?

Cheers Rob

Yes, but separate, my Tiger I, Sd.kfz.222, and the bike in a dio.

No whiskey, I don’t drink and model. I keep Iso Alcohol on the bench, the good stuff stays downstairs. Come to think of it, we don’t keep whiskey in the house, only Rum, Silver Tequila, Moonshine (love apple or cherry), and A few varieties of Vodka.

What are your buddies building? Always modelled alone, not sure if I could concentrate......

I think there was a Revell Ar-196, a Wingnut, and a Tamiya tank or two. We do these get together at least every couple of months, then we have an Monday night show-n-share first Monday of every month.

I’m gonna push my truck through and see if I can get it done. I’m just not an armor guy. 

That’s good, because there is no armor on a truck. ;)

Thanks, but it’s funny you say that about the figures. I have accepted my inability to paint a face, so I went extremely simple, I painted the flesh one color, used a brown wash, then used Tamiya’s weathering pastels as highlights. I didn’t even paint the eyes. I have to give credit to the new sculpt figures in the kit.
