Yawn, yet another DML StuG III G smartie

I have been slowly banging away at this one. A really nice kit. I have both cyber hobby update sets - thanks Pat - but have decided to scrap the PE fenders - they suck, and the detail is MUCH better on the plastic ones. Well enough talk, here are the pics!

That looks great John! I've been thinking about getting the Fender Bender myself, what do you think of it?

Hi John,

looking fine so far. I'll be watching this one.

How does the Fender Bender compare to a Hold & Fold or the Etchmate?

Hi guys. The fender bender is great. This took combined with a 2 inch HnF is all you need for PE. THE FB is not great for really small parts IMO, but I love the intergrated folding arm. As for color, Yellow with Green patches. GD at Kursk. Thanks for looking and commenting.
