Next up is the story of Moritz. Better known as Sturer Emil or Selbstfahrlafette auf VK 30.01(H) Moritz was one of two Sturer Emils that were build and saw combat on the eastern front during the offensive to Stalingrad. Moritz claimed 22 kills before he was left behind by it's crew. The Russians claimed the vehicle and it exists to this day in the Kubinka tank museum. i bought the Trumpeter kit. The sprue count is low. Parts look crisp, little to no flash visible. I ordered 2 figures from Alpine to add to the model. Mainly to show the size of the Tank. This time i made shure i ordered the real ones 😉 So, i think this will be a fun project. No diorama this time. Maybe a simple base but nothing too fancy. Well, that's all the info and progress for now. If you want to tag along, go ahead. The more, the merrier. Cheers guys! 🍻🍻🍻
Dear Fellow Modellers Here is the Chinese CA-30 truck which is a clone of the Soviet Zil-151. The design owes much to the lend-lease Studebacker trucks from WWII. It was in service in China from 1960s to 1980s and I believe some still serve in the Bangladesh army. In the Vietnam war they chugged down the Ho chi Minh trail and so made a major part in the eventual victory of the Communists. It is dressed up with Miniarm resin wheels and SKP lamps and lenses. Trumpeter provide a canvas tilt but omit the cover on the front so this was added from tissue. Hope you like it? Andrew
