StuG.III F/8 Early Production - Dragon 1/35 - Sicily


Recommended Posts

This was my project for the Panzer III STGB and it was a most enjoyable build. The Dragon kit was a really nice kit, but the instructions left a bit to be desired in a few places.

 

Kit: Dragon 1/35 No.6620

Paints: Humbrol, Revell, Citadel, Vallejo and Railmatch acrylic paints all applied by brush

Extras: Vallejo European Mud, Tamiya and HobbyBoss/Tristar figures, Redog and Tamiya stowage, MDF, pizza box packing styrene, Pollyfilla Multi-Purpose filler, Guagemaster Blended Turf, Army Painter Tufts, twigs from the garden, fuse wire, small jewellery chain, medium thread and MiniArt signs.

Just a couple of photos here to show how it looks on it’s base with a sky background:

Hi Longbow. I hope you are keeping well and thank you very much for your kind comments.

If you get chance, do pop into the Pz.III GB as there's excellent builds going on still.

Kind regards,

Your models never disappoint Stix. Paint job and the weathering are excellent, as are the stowage and the figures. Great work all round.

Hi Stix,

A great job, I love how it turned out, you do not lack anything, vehicle, figures, base and background, and also all this with a brush and with a magnificent appearance.
I really like all the rear stowage that you have accumulated and arranged with very good judgment, all well attached (and not with glue ... lol).
Cheers and TC

Extraordinary! Easily one of the best tank and figure models I've seen here, in a perfect scenery.  May I make a suggestion - just a very minor one? The StuG commander leaning out of the left hatch should have some kind of rank marking on his shoulder pieces. (He wouldn't be an ordinary soldier - Panzerschütze - as shown).
