Panzer III RR

Roco Panzer III HO scale tank, add the tracks, upper hull and turret to the underside.

Once it's done the tank looks pretty nice.

The finished model is a Panzer III railroad model. The tank in real life was designed to patrol train tracks for partisans. The train wheels could be retracked so they could go back to using the tank treads.

The railroad versions did not have the storage bin on the back, a simple cut off.

I made two of these rather rare vehicles. Rocos were from the spares bin and so were the various parts so essentially the models were free. Some Roco Panzer III have a defect on the storage bin so these were not usable with the bin. I like taking junk modes and making unique kits out of them.
