DML SU-76i Conversion


These were built from PzIII chassis (tanks and stugs) mostly captured at Stalingrad.
From the fall of 1943 to early 1944 about 1200 were produced. After they became obsolete they were used for training.

Aires makes the resin conversion that i'm using but two or three others made one as well.
Hauler makes a 1/48th set too.

The mantlet is textured but the rest is pretty smooth. It looks like granite because Aires used some sort of filler in the resin.

I watched E-Bay and ask around until I found one.

Those are some great photos Andrey,Thanks

The manlet area on mine must be an early variant from the one in the pictures, it looks much much stronger.

It seems that it's a "new made" manlet in museum.
