Panzer III kit size comparison question

Post by Richard B. »

Hi all

I find myself thinking about getting an additional 2-4 panzer IIIs to fight a larger action, but all my 10th Panzer IIIs are the Matchbox kit (i have 10), I bought the Armourfast 2 in a box kit, but frankly they are pretty poor (and big).

Does anyone happen to know if the Italeri 2 in a box Panzer III looks OK next to an old Matchbox III??

Same question as to the PSC kits?


Whilst we`re here I assume the Revell IIIL is just the repackaged matchbox kit - is this correct??

Sorry, Richard, I thought so but no - it is a rebox of the old Ausf M kit and has the hard plastic build up fiddly tracks.

I have not tried these but Butlers do a 3d print in 1/76

Cheers for the info alan :D

I`ll keep Butlers in mind, i`m not sold on 3d printed models, but it may be my only option :shock:

Have you considered S models. A couple of reviews here:

First review gives a comparison with the revell kit.
