(Jake Edison's Custom Panzers, Vol. 1)
To make this assault gun, you must have the Panzer PzIII kit and software to edit it. If you don't have the software (like Photoshop or Illustrator) then you can just cut the pieces as described and print as many sheets as needed.
1. Shorten the upper hull to a point just after the turret placement line ends and modify the sides so that they fit the slant of the turret placement line folded down.
2. Modify the gunner's seat exterior so that the sides slant at a 45-degree angle, as to make a gun mount.
3. Make another upper hull (or print out another page) and shorten it so the turret guide and the back hatches are no more. Modify the sides as needed.
KEEP THE GUN, CHASSIS, DECK, TREADS, TURRET (for parts), ETC (anything that's not modified)
You are now finished with the design. It's time for assembly.
4. Assemble the chassis, deck, and treads as usual.
5. Assemble the larger upper hull, with the back hatches facing forward, and attach it to the deck.
6. Make the smaller upper hull unit and attach that to the rest, with the hatches at the rear.
7. Glue the gun mount/gunner's seat to the bottom section of the lower upper hull. Mount the gun on it so it faces straight ahead.
8. If there's any area that doesn't have a side or anything, cut out parts from the turret and glue them on.
9. Glue the top part of the commander's dome (no siding) to the back-left corner of the top part.
10. Put the machine gun barrel at the very front of the chassis.
11. (OPTIONAL) If you have any model that has a manned machine gun such as the one on the Hansa-Brandenburg W29, make that and glue it just to the side of the commander's dome top.
12. Paint over any areas that have unwanted writing or white parts. Gunship Gray looks great, but if you don't have that, just use any color that fits.
TIP: Make a sort of Orange-Brown/Dark Green/Brown Camo version from the BW kit for a great effect!
You're finished! Display it, modify it further, but whatever you do, POST PICTURES!
Chip (or any FG designer), if you're reading this, try it, and if it works out, publish it! Just make sure to give me some credit.

Me: "I like a balanced mix of both. The ease of paper and the detail of plastic..."
Cashier: "I think we're talking about different things. Cash or credit card?"
Me: "Oh, sorry. Cash."
