Got a Stug.....gonna slug the hell out of it....:cool:



something along these lines



Don't worry, no dead tankers in this one. Maybe just a curious yank taking a gawk.
Have seen AFVs opened up like tin cans, will try to recreate something half believable anyway.
There is an internal rudimentary gun with kit inside superstructure, it will sure help to try to depict blasted and burnt out interior.

Will do some research on this gals interior and scratch up some effects, we'll see how far I go.

Update soon.

Thanks for your attention Ian, things slowing down around homestead so more time for modelling.
Just got this idea and if I think too much about it, the longer it takes to start it.

I just dive in and start destructing...fast and furious, no time to think too much, just start blasting and then start dealing with it.
Much like real life :flushed:

Rough start made, everything else will sprout from this nucleus.

Thank for looking in Jim:hugging-face:

Can't wait to see how this progresses Jim. Always wanted to try something like this.

UPDATE:

Getting some work done, it's fun to ponder how to construct the destruction.
Base will be small and simple, just enough to get the point across...a simple rural village road.

Bent road wheel studs upward to show collapsed suspension as is often seen on very hard hit units.
Something not often seen and a first for me, we'll see how it goes.

Update:

Got suspension and tracks worked out, the good Lt. Tom having a look see.
Long way to go, will start bringing out color on Stug and dressing things up a bit
it will be muddy somewhat, but I will try to have contrasting colors and not have everything looking kinda burnt out.
