DAK is on the move in Egypt!!! mkl

These are tanks for the 21st Panzer Division 5th Panzer Regiment. There are 5 Panzer III with one M, 2 J lates, and 2 G models. There are also 2 Sd Kfz 222 and 1 Sd Kfz 231 (8-rad) armoured cars. I followed the GW paint guide in the Afrika book and then did an Ogryn wash with bit more Kommando Khaki dry brush. The numbers and symbols are all brushed so I take full credit for the ones which look good and of course the ones which look bad. The numbering is not all form the same unit is on purrpose. I am trying to do a force from the time period of the First Battle of El Alamein. By this time the armour in the DAK was depleted. I wanted to show that this unit was made from several depleted units. My infantry force has a bit of armour support. The armoured cars I love and will create a Panzerspah company in the future. For now they are the eyes of the schutzen company from the 104th Schutzen Regiment 2nd Schutzen Battalion.
