Kagero Mini Topcolors 36
Pz.Kpfw. III Family
Reviewed by Brett Green
The latest in Kagero’s Mini Topcolors series covers a selection of Panzer III tanks and the Sturmgeschutz III.
This very handy series includes high quality colour profiles plus wartime photos and a description of the subject vehicles, plus a big decal sheet with markings for all the vehicles in 1:72, 1:48 and 1:35 scales.
In this case, there are 16 vehicles ranging from one example used by the Afrika Korps in 1942, a number from the Eastern Front from the winter of 1942 onward, Sicily and Italy, Slovenia, France, Holland and Germany. These cover a good selection of camouflage from Panzer Grey to overall Dark Yellow and many variations on the tri-colour theme.
There is still plenty of scope for a Panzer III Part 2 title!
The decal sheet is beautifully printed by Cartograf, with the markings in perfect register and glossy with minimal carrier film.
With its nice variety of colours and markings, and different sub-types with and without zimmerit, there is plenty of scope for the modeller to expand their Tiger collection based on the options provided in Kagero’s latest Mini Topcolors book.
