I was very careful with the chipping. Perhaps I could chip it a little more.
You can hardly see it. You have to look for it.
Let me know what you think. A bit more?
Stan

granted what you're asking is based upon personal tastes but i'd add a few more surface (light gray) scratches and then go back and add a few rusty colored ones to break it up a bit. what you've done looks great though, understated and random.

Haven't been here in a while, looks like I missed some great work! I second Chad's advice. I think it's at the point where you need to step back and take a break. Come back to it fresh. One of those, 'just a little more chipping...' kind of things that would push it over the edge to over-done.

Thanks for your comments. I'm glad you like it
I painted the tools. I used Tamiya Flesh as base, then I applied a coat of Raw Umber oil paint which I left for ten minutes or so. Then using an old stiff brush, I removed most of the oil paint and left it for a week to dry.
The leather, I used Tamiya Hull Red, then overcoated with Tamiya Clear Red and applied Mig Dark Wash.
I dusted the model with all different pigments and airbrushed pigment fixer.

I wasn't happy with the sag on the tracks and decided to purchase Friul tracks.
I bought Pz III Ausf J links from Historex.
This track is different than the one in the kit. It doesn't even fit the drive wheel.
I have emailed them and their answer was:

Dear Sir,
Thank you for your email, The tracks from Friulmodell are correct, the dragon kit is wrong, that is why so many people purchase these tracks, the sprocket wheels on the kit are also wrong and Friulmodel make a set for this AW01B which fit these tracks.
Here is a link http://www.historexagents.com/shop/h...ductCode=AW01B
Regards
Mail Order Sales
HISTOREX AGENTS

Can anybody tell me what the correct track and wheel is for type J?
Thanks

Stan

Hi Stan,

if you want to have Friuls for your nice Pz III J, than the ATL04 http://www.friulmodel.hu/en/metal-tr...iv_p7f5.6.html are the correct ones!
Here you can see them on Pz III Js from the 24.Pz.Div. on their way to Stalingrad






Regards,

Notger

Stan ... I don't get it. Which Friul reference did you buy ?
ATL 03 ?
They should fit the bill (as well as ATL 04) as far as dimensions are concerned ... I used some on other DML kits with success.
Note to Notger : the tracks seen on the pics you posted look like ATL 05 to me ...
