Morning again :thumb2:

This is my 2nd build and yes just had to do a StuG. Doctors orders by the way :smiling5:

Back to my favourite StuG know its inaccurate but its a beauty to build. I always have one in stock

Going to add a lot of stuff to both correct the problems but also add to it plus some very basic scratching (sorry) not much good at the dark art :disappointed2:

Going to add rear deck rack, brackets to hang extra tracks and extra spare wheel storage, plus wear and tear damage

CMK kits to correct the roof, engine deck and rear panel, although research might make some of these parts redundant?

Eduard PE skirts and Aber PE set, I have a hate, hate relationship with PE but time to do battle lol

Metal barrel by RB

Legend storage set and fruile metal tracks, made them this morning :astonished:

Metal tow cables

Star decals for SS StuG's

this should keep me busy, not sure whether to do winter or summer paint as this version was at Kursk

Hope this is of interest

Bob. There’s a lot of Medication there from the Doctor. Hope you don’t over dose. Yes I’m with Jim. Simon would have it no other way

Hi Chris, just under 8" £2!!!! Well spotted Jen
Hi Bob
Simon would expect a StuG from you that's for sure. Wonderful load of extras - bet they cost about 10 times what you paid for the kit :tongue-out3: I like that Legend stowage kit.
Jim
I do like a StuG or 50 and yes rather a lot more than the kit, ouch! Had the legend kit for ages, from a charity shop in Cotswolds. Should be a nightmare lol

Hi Lee, yep lots of get me better soon stuff, starting to think i need a rubber room and soon!!

This is gonna be an awesome build Bob. I wish you all the best as you have a lot to contend with. Good luck my friend.
Cheers Steve. Hope i can do Simon proud?? The kit is easy to build so at least i can concentrate on the loads of bits!

Nice choice Bob

Is the original really that bad with all the CMK replacements?

Or is it a version change?

Always good to see another Stug on the bench.

Hopefully your wrist will behave to get your builds finished over the next few months in lockdown

Have fun
