"What makes this as a book for modellers though is that a large sheet of transfers are included, with the markings needed for all 16 subjects featured in the book, and they are done in 1/35, 1/48 and 1/72 all on the one sheet. So enough to attract any AFV modeller no matter what your preferred scale (or if you are like me, then all three!). The transfers are printed by Cartogrpah so you know they are of good quality. Among the vehicles featured in, just to give a guide, there are a Pz III Ausf J in North Africa, in a unit equipped with demolition vehicles; a Stug III Ausf G and a Pz III Ausf N at Kursk; a Stug III F/8 from the Herman Goring Div in Sicily in 1943; along with others on the Eastern Front, in Italy, France and Holland providing a good selection of the different theatres where these well used vehicles saw service.
Overall this is of course a little book for Pz III fans in particular, and with such good quality artwork and transfers, it should attract a keen following."
