Thanks for the new photos, Yobbo!  In the past month I read both the Osprey and Periscopo publications on El Alamein, so seeing your DAK versions was an extra pleasure for me.  I grew up in the northern US with its woodland colors, and I always felt out of place in the far western US with its dominant browns and tans.  Now as an old codger I live in dense woodland.  So I had avoided the Panzergelb versions of the Panzerkampfwagen III, IV, V and VI.  But having now read the histories of El Alamein and having just worked on an M1A2 Abrams in desert colors, I am growing an appreciation for tans and sandy tones.

Yobbo!  I like the paint chipping and the way the camouflage looks faded, as if this Panzer had been in the sun.  Then, too, you gave the standard HengLong tank commander a map to make him more interesting.  I see something on the insides of the two hatch doors, too.  Is that a padding?  I will need to pay attention to that.

Thanks Prof , but I can't take any credit for the paint job , Taigen painted it.
I did paint the hatch padding though , just with some matt brown.

Hmmm...  hanging gear on the extra track links...good idea,Yobbo!  That helps avoid the problem of gear appearing to be attached to nothing.

By the way, I do enjoy seeing photos with basements and modeling tables in the background.  Are basements common in Australia?  Many in the warmer southern states here in the US do not have basements under their homes.  I prefer a modest home over a humongous basement!

Here's a couple of pics of my Taigan  panzer 3.

The Taigen look great straight out of the box mate

Is this the IR version and is it "pop top" or does the battery go in from underneath ?

Yes it is the IR version.

Negative on pop top , screws and battery underneath as per HL.
