Sturmtiger- did they have zimmerit?

Recommended Posts

I recently picked up the Rye Field Models Sturmtiger kit (#5035). The box art doesn't show any zimmerit on the hull, not is there any mention to apply it in the instructions. Were there any Sturmtigers without zimmerit?  If so, that makes things much easier for me.

 

Thanks.

Unfortunately, all of the Sturmtigers had Zimmerit, but only on hull, and very patchy. 

The hulls came off Tiger I’s, converted to the Sturmtiger. 

As such, the Zim was pretty beaten up, and not reapplied.

Didn't they stop applying Zimmerit after September 1944? I have no idea when the Sturmtigers were built.

As @Longbow said above, the few sturmtigers built were made on existing/reworked hulls so had the original zimm on them.

Thanks gents! That's what I figured but wasn't 100% sure so thought it best that I ask.
