About the Author

About Kevin Potts (ElCapitan)
FROM: PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES

I started to build models at the age of 6 and somewhere in my teens I took a long break. Then a couple of years ago I returned to the hobby and got back into it, so now I try something different on each vehicle in an attempt to push myself.

Outstanding! I moved away from German armor because I could never quite master the camo. This is a fine example of an early German tank. Hope to see more from you.

Always neat to see the early-war Panzers get their due. Very sharp work on the scheme and the interior as well. This one's on my "add to the stash" list as a true E and this is an inspiring build that will likely increase the odds of it being purchased sooner rather than later!

Thanks for all the compliments. This turned out to be a good build, but be carefull when reviewing the instructions. Dragon gives so many options, its easy to miss something. Thanks again. Kevin

Great work on painting this early PIII. Just a couple of questions .. What paint and finishing did you use on the tracks and the wooden parts (handles, box wire cutter) ? thanks and keep us posted on your next build !!!

Nice clean built. I like the way you weathered the tank. Which kit is this? I like the way you did the inside of the cupola.

I used Model Master acrylic paints for all the base coats followed by silver, addtional weathering and oil washes which were sealed with Testors flat clear. The only enamel paint I use is silver since I like the way it drybrushes. MIG pigments were added as the final step. Thanks.

This is Dragons newer PzIII E that came out earlier this year. The kit number is 6631. The cupola is composed of 25 pieces which adds to the detail, but it's time consuming. Good luck. Thanks
