Pz.Kpfw.III Ausf.G (GPM 203)

Hello to all!

I had an idea, for a long time, to complete line of main WWII german tanks, from Pz.I to Pz.VI
I have already Pz.II on the shelf, so now i decided to build Pz.III
This modification is Pz.III Ausf.G from Africa Corps, managed by legendary general Rommel
You can read the info here Panzerkampfwagen III
The book is repreant from 2005, but without error corrections :pinch:
It has full interior and all hatches open. Also, there is an option to make removable top

I will build the model as is, only painting edges. Also, i will use laser cut tracks from Ortin.
I'm still not sure if i will make removable top or not

Well, let's start!
The frame. There is no sign on which cardboard you need to glue it, so after some measurements, i decided to glue it on 1 mm cardboard.
The pointing on side parts is wrong and little parts must be glued in reverse. You will see it on pictures.
Also, i cut out inner and outer skin, but glued only inner for now.

Hallo

Made a partition between main and engine compartment
Instruction suggests to glue the part on 1 mm cardboard, but gluing place shows that 0.5 mm will be enough.
So I understand, that I will be in need to check every detail that must be glued on some cardboard, to see if thickness is correct :thumbdown:

Today I completed torsion bars system
There is no need to cut inside part 8 for part 8a, because it will not enter inside, and only in this way the length of bar will be sufficient, from wall to wall
Also, I advise not to assemble and glue parts in blind matter, following the numeration. Sometimes there is no logic in order. Like with parts 7 and 8. First you must glue part 8 and then 7

Hallo

I assembled support triangles and rails and lower floor under the turret.
The floor was a little too big for the hall, so i was in need to cut about 0.5 mm from three sides, except front.
Also, almost all support triangles must be adjusted to fit on gluing places on torsion bars.
One more important note: support triangle #10 need to be cut in width for about 1 mm, to make place for seats, that will be inserted in the future

Gearbox
Some parts need to be adjusted, but in general there was no problems.
Also I noticed, that cardboard circle diameter is equal to whole strip with gluing leaf. You can adjust the circle to strip diameter, but all gluing places based on diameter of the circles

Hello!
After a little vacation, I'm back to business :)
Transmission block took some effort to accomplish.
I advise to assemble all parts apart, to measure a lot and then to adjust everything to its place, because one part depends
on another and if you glue all parts together and then try to insert it into hall - you will fail!
As you see, side drums are apart from main block. Also, after some adjustments, it became that main block glued as its upper crossbar sticks into gear box.
After that I glued 2 drums to their places and only then the main part with gear box. Final step was shaft cover, that also needed adjustment to fit in place.

I've managed to insert seats with no problem.

I think it's too much simplified, but eventually only the top will be seen, so I'm OK with that :)

Hello
I finished the interior. Visors was glued upside down. Already fixed it :)
Next step was to glue outer skin. I was in need to make some adjustments, but in general it fitted OK.
A lot time was taken to cut out, paint and glue all the hatches and stuff.
I suggest avoiding glue part 1i on cardboard, because afterwards you need to shape it

Hello
The process is continued, little by little
I glued some additional parts to outer side of hull. Also assembled tensioning mechanism.
After this step i moved to cut out huge amount of wheels parts and assembled one for testing. No real problems, only outer strip, part 71f was too short.

In breaks, between cutting out the parts, I assembled mudguards and glued them to place.
Part 41, supporting beam, will be glued later, after I'll figure out how much space is needed to insert upper hull part

Hello Igor,

good idea to delay parts 41, one could really run into trouble with the upper hull

Exactly! Thanks Zaphod

I continue with wheels and present you assembling conveyor in pictures. Step by step :)

There was only one problem - outer strip was too short, but eventually it will be covered with tracks

Wheels placed on axis. Rollers and swinging arms assembeld.
Axis of the wheels must be reduced in diameter or it will not enter the whole.
Swinging arms must be assembled with extra care and measurement. Connecting beam are too large in diameter.
I advise not to glue part 1t1 on cardboard or it will interfere later with swinging arms.

Thanks David :)

Finished the upper part of a body. As designer meant, I did it removable.
Inside I glued supporters and parts of inner hull. I made corrections to the front, by narrowing front part to match the width it inserts to. (removed about 1 mm from each side)
Also, at back I discovered a little gap between upper and lower parts. So I made a little two-side strip, to cover it.
Beside this, two parts connect perfectly and stay in place. Later, front towing hooks will work as locks.

Thank you guys
Zaphod - little more details and yes, moving to final stage - the turret :)

Meanwhile I assembled front armor plates
I advise to measure well and check if plates enter their place by width
I was in need to cut about 1 mm from each side and to adjust skins accordingly
Also, now upper removable part can be locked in front - from one side by base of tow hook, from the other by horizontal plate

Well... You won! :D
Thank for the kind words. Sadly, second degree studies took all my time and I didn't progress much for past year. But its over now and I'm back to business! :P

The work continues with turret assembling.
Joining outer skin and base of a turret included a lot of measuring and cutting, but eventually parts connected
You need to pay attention gluing visors with two black holes up and also to check that turret ring enters freely but not too much into the frame hole
The base of a barrel sits on axis and turns up and down
