Can anyone tell me which mark of Panzer 3 the battlefront model for their plastic DAK set(s) depicts? I am guessing its an H that can be upgraded to a J with either the short or the long 50mm gun .

Since it comes with the Flammpanzer option I think it is more likely the M but could do service as the L or N.

If that is the case then its too late a mark for my 1941/42 DAK.
Fine for Tunisia.

Plastic set GBX122 (w/ skirts) is ausf L,M,N, late Afrika
Plastic set GBX105 (w/o skirts) is ausf G,H, and J (both). Just right.

BTW just so peoples know , as BF just used the older box set with some extra bits , the hull side escape hatches are still on the kit. Why they couldn't have made them separate parts like PSC who knows . huh?

Those that use the skirts will find that the escape hatches are hidden by the side skirts.

That's the reason why I queried the mark of tank that they produced as L types and onwards dispensed with the hull escape hatches but the kit track sides still showed them in situ.

Whilst I do like PSC kits my preference is for the Battlefront Plastics as assembly wise they tend to go together better and quicker.
