Since time ago, I’ve spent my free time building exclusively models from the Vietnam War (just American and Australians) and vehicles that saw service in North Africa during WWII (allied and axis). After so many years devoting to this subject, there are just a few models I’ve not built yet, this is why I’m always searching for new information about kit conversions of vehicles which there is no commercial kit available around the market. And, if I find a picture of a vehicle that doesn’t exist in my collection, I start to think about facing that project.


This is why on finding a picture of the commonly called Panzer III E command tank (Panzerbefehlswagen Ausf E SdKfz 266, 267 ó 268 depending on the radio equipment they have), and seeing that the changes were not complicated, I decided to get down to work!.

Obviously, I purchased the Dragon Panzer III Ausf E (ref. #9040) and the Aber PE set (ref. # 35042).


As always, the Dragon kits supplies a lot of spare parts for other versions, good injection molded kit with individual track links.

Though it’s not an up- to- the- minute kit, it’s fairly good, comprising a lot of parts, instructions are clear and construction doesn’t offer major problems.

Step 1 y 2

Here there are nearly no difficulties, the most complicated was to relocate the front support of the track return rollers, part J3, in the right place.

To ease painting, I use to paint the running gear with a base in the final color prior to being removed from the sprue, this is why it has not been already placed.
