DML Stug III ausf C-D

Hello everyone!!

After a long absence from PA its time to end the vacation time and join the “Stug-fest”. This time I will be building DML’s Stug III ausf C/D.



This will be a very basic build, almost straight out of the box but for minor changes. Since Ruben already started one of these and you guys have seen this model plenty of times I will only highlight the differences I will be adding along.

Since Stugs always have large hatches I took this as an opportunity to show some interior details, mainly the radio. So I cut the area where the radio would go to make room for it inside.





Some shots of the superstructure.





Here is how it looks so far. I finished the suspension and glued the loader’s hatch shut.







The main gun also received some attention. Mainly some putty to hide a few defects.





That is all for now. See you guys soon.

Dave

Thanks Siim,

Well, here is a small update on the builds progress.

I attached the fenders and then primed the interior with flat black.



Next I added the PE engine intake covers.



I added the front tow shackles and used some green putty to get rid of the gap between the two pieces.



After some sanding….



Next I started on the weld lines. These were done using fine plastic rod. Liquid cement was used to soften it up and I used the knife to shape it.



I also added the weld lines around the side vision port and on the lifting hooks.



And the weld lines around the gun’s mantle.



I gave the interior a coat of off white.



I then put the hatches in place and covered the radio and sight openings in preparation for painting.



As of now that is where we stand. Thanks for viewing and hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Dave

Did you miss the sink marks on the top of the gun mantlet?

Good Start. Are you going to use radios from the Aber set or steal them from the Smart Kit Stug G?
