Tamiya Panzer III Ausf. N (Ref: 35290)
The Panzer III was a German Army workhorse, soldiering away on all fronts. So Tamiya’s Ausf. N is a welcome addition.

It’s not as if the modeller is short of choice when depicting the Panzer III - with a vast range of variants & models on offer. As proof of the power of an attention-grabbing piece of box-art, we couldn’t resist & added it to the stash.

In fact, it was the stunning illustration adorning the box of this kit (Tamiya Ref: 35290) that had us reaching for our wallets.

There’s always a reassuring sense that the Shizouka-based manufacturer will reward you with a well-engineered & simple to build model. This 2008 release doesn’t disappoint. Upon opening the box you are greeted by a selection of well-moulded sprues in pale sand plastic. The base Panzer III parts from their Ausf. L kit (Tamiya Ref: 35215) hold up well & the additional sprues for the Ausf. N are of the same quality.

As advertised on the box, the kit comprises some photo etch grills & a turned metal barrel by way of extras.

All in all there are 283 plastic parts & 7 photo etch items used to depict the close-support version of this particular tank.

The full-length vinyl tracks are well-moulded but don’t really cut it these days if you take your modelling as seriously as we do, so we thought we’d build this model up using after-market metal tracks – so stay tuned for a full build coming soon.
