Looks great John! Love the shading. What paints did you use?

I got this kit for Fathers Day and started it up but haven't made much progress.

John, what are you using for the screens? I'm working on Tamiya's 1/48 T34 and would like to remove the screen on the back deck, but don't have anything that fine. Thanks, Dan

Hey John,
ive already seen this on your site and was hoping to see it somewhere else too to comment on it .
Looks great buddy, I love it!

One question though,
do you think the rack can hold a full 200 Liter barrel while driving?
Not meant as a critic, just a question!

More progress. Road wheels and return rollers are painted, molded on tools are painted. Decals applied - not overcaoted yet so still shinny, and weathering started on the lower hull and tracks.

Hello John,

this is a very nice StuG and I like it a lot.
Looking at the wirecutter it looks you went for wooden handles. AFAIK the handles were normally made of Bakelit which had a dark purple/red color to it....
the only wooden handles I saw were reproductions in the museum but maybe I'm wrong ?!?

Please post more pics of the further process.

Bye,
Harry
