Hi chaps

Things have been a bit slow on the armour modelling front lately, mainly owing to the Euro 2012 football and a 1:32 Hasegawa Fw 190D-9.

However, England have had a break and the glue is drying on the Dora so I've done a bit on the little StuG. It was pointed out to me that the commander's hatch opened on more of an angle and the machine gun was stowed inside and the armour plate laid flat when the loader's hatch was shut. That's a bit of a shame as the gun with etch ring site is a real gem. Maybe I'll jut have it lying on the top, hmmmm. Thanks for the feedback chaps.

I've also done the etched shurzen armour. Again it was really fiddly but well worth it.

Right, we're now ready for the fun bit, paint!

That looks awesome! Paint will only enhance an already brilliant model.

You're building a Dora as well? Is it the 1/35 or 1/72 scale one? I've seen a completed 1/35 scale one; what a massive and impressive model!
