Eduard Schurzen Pz.III Ausf.M/N,
by Frank De Sisto
Contains four frets and four pages of instructions. Price: $29.95 USD.
I have been waiting for years for DML to tackle this set, as the later
Pz.Kpw. IIIs are some of my favorite vehicles to model.
This set is very complete and starts out with all of the hull mounting
brackets and rails, plus, of course, the actual overlapping side plates.
These are all nicely engineered for ease of use, and are not overly complex,
although care in fitting is required so the plates will properly line
up on the finished model.
The turret has a unique way for assuring the mounting struts are properly
spaced and also strong enough to withstand some handling. The main struts
on either side are each comprised of a single piece, consisting of a plate
which fits under the turret’s bottom surface. The remaining side
plates are fixed to these, with the rear plate and door covering plates
added last. This looks like it should ease the process considerably, and
should be welcome by modelers.
