Sturmi
 
Okay folks. This is my kickoff to Sturmi project.

As I earlier said I'm gomma make finnish sturmi usin dragon early Stug III G SK. Started it today. Make some suspension and yeah that's the boring part of project. Haven't made up my mind yet which version to make. 531-6, -12 and -19 have been on top of the list. MIAG versions with bolted armor. With or without logs is THE question. Not gonna make concrete reinforcements, that much I know.:) Things that I have to make anyway are:

-Box and it's rack on rear deck
-sparewheels on side of fighting comparament(not if I put logs)
-bigger hole on loades shield for DT tank-mg
-move start-crank on rear plate
-replace s-hooks with c-hooks

I still have time to deside cause I can build lower hull Ootb. Only replace those injected muffler shields more scale. Use pe or make by my self from aluminium sheet. Magic tracs go for spares parts cause I'm gonna use friul solid horn tracks(most sturmis had em). Pics to come..:D

Cheers Mikko

P.S. Laz I'm gonna blow your doubts about this project to moon..;) :D :D

Thanks Rick!:)

This is in top of my list. Number six "Liisa".

Three big logs on side and smaller logs slope armour. Three colour camo. Repair paint spots near and around drivers area. And whats most intresting Scull painted(??) on RHS center log!!:D That's very strange on finnish vehicle.;D

Except that -12 is an Alkett vehicle. Still bolted-on armour on the front, but the rear deck is interlocked like on the all welded ones. And it seems like she didn't have the rear box nor the spare wheels moved during the (early) summer of -44.

Liisa sound like a good choice.

Hi Andreas. You are right it's alkett. It shouldn't be big operation to converse rear deck interlocked but at this moment I still bet my money on "Liisa". That skull is just too juicy thing to ignore.:D Any idea about those sparewheel racks? Hammered, cut off or left in place and logs pushed through? What colour is that repair paint?

MikkoH 02-10-2008 01:19 PM

Rick and Laz, I agree:D And it's named after girl, unlike Bubi.:P
