Well with the look on Mr Tomcat's face he approves the choice you've made Monica.

It looks like mice have been at the instructions, and what was Mr Tomcat doing while this was going on? He doesn't seem to be much of a mouser.

Monica is it the cat that's building it because it looks most impressed.

Im not building mine with the side armour, and painting it with Redbrown over Dark Yellow, I also did not use the cement block in the kit, so you have lots of options with this one. It will be interesting to see how you build yours!

I like this camouflage scheme, very nice indeed, a base coat of olive-green with red brown and a narrow stripe of dark yellow.

There's very little documentary evidence of StuG camo schemes Moni, most of the colour plates available are really just guesswork ;)


So that one would be ok even though it's a StuG III rather than a IV.


Mesh sideskirts were only used on Panzer IV ausf J variants & the Tamiya kit is based on the ausf G so they wouldn't be suitable. Unless the crew had replaced their battered Schürzen with some scrounged mesh ones ;)

Very good update there Moni, thanks for the pics of the circle template, I have already been searching ebay for one I like. The photos are a great help on how it is used so thanks for that. 


Also I like how its all come together and the colour scheme you've gone with is very well executed.
