1/48 Tamiya StuH 42

 

This was "quick" project - relatively speaking - to try my hand at a 1/48 scale kit.

I used Tamiya's 1/48 StuG III Early, replaced the barrel with an RB turned barrel and added the missing screens from Hauler. The concrete fill in is Miliput, the tarps are Green Stuff, the rest is from styrene sheet, brass strip, epoxy putty, or bits and pieces from the spares box including some Verlinden stowage and Hobby Boss T-34 tracks. The door is a model RR part and the beams are an intentional nod to my earlier StuG. The kit tracks are a mess to fit properly and I should have sprang for Fruil but I didn't so there.

 

Model is painted with Tamiya Acrylics. Weathered with oil paints, dry pigmnets, and weathering enamels. This was a very enjoyable project.
