I just posted a build of the PSC Pz IIIf on my blog, lots of pictures. Hopefully clears up some of the ambiguity in the instructions.

Easy done. And a useful post.

"PSC has again thoughtfully made the parts so that they cannot be assembled wrong"

Oh, I've proved this false! Seriously though, nice review.

Figuring out how to fit PSC tracks correctly is the key and the instructions are not too helpful with that and a few other things. Once you work it out (or have it pointed out by a halpful online review) they are really great to put together.

They should've just made the track one piece like Armourfast and Italeri did for 1/72 with their quick-builds. People aren't going to complain about the loss of detail for 1/100.

I'm personally glad the detail is there in the tracks. I took an Armorfast M4 Sherman once and cut little V's to make rubber chevron tracks for the model…

Perhaps it is because I come from a static scale modelling background that a model with a dozen or more parts is just no big deal, I prefer the better fit of the plastics. I have also heard people complain that a plastic model is too light, easy answer is to glue a couple of buckshot into the hull as you build.

Garand you are a mad-man, that is a lot of X-acto work (I would have ended up with stitches)
