Hi All,
here are a couple of shots of the StuG F/8 basecoated in Africa colours Gelbbraun and Graugrun. These vehicles were intended for north Africa but were diverted to the eastern front. Most were given whitewash coat for winter 42/43 as this vehicle will have. The gloss coat is Klear to aid decal placement and protect the enamel paint from the weathering process.

I think, Steve, we all agree this is (again) exceptional work. These Stug series is becomming a standard setting work !

Question : are you planning on making all (major) Stug variants, and if so, which ones do you still want to build ?
Secondly, and a strong candidate for Never Been Built, : are you going to built a initial/prototype series Stug A0 that was based on the 8 wheel PzKfw III D ??

Hi Robert,
I've used xtracolor enamels on this build, gelbbraun and graugrun. It will have a worn whitewash coat over this. More pics soon.
Regards,

Steve

Hi Alfred,
Thanks for that. I've only got one more StuG planned, an early Ausf G. A series O would be good but the suspension and running gear looks a bit daunting!
