Hey guys, I'm planning my new Stug build and I have a few questions. Does anyone have experience with either the CMK or Jaguar Stug III G interior? Is one more accurate for a late model, or is there little difference? How about the Calibre 35 engine set? Can't tell for sure if that includes the engine or just the compartment.

Right now, I'm planning on adding a set of MK sprockets, an Armorscale barrel and saukopf mantlet, some Aber, and either Friul or MK tracks.

I have been considering a Stuh, but as no one currently does a Stuh interior, I might hold off until CMK releases theirs. Or I'll just get rid of the interior idea and save some money.

Maybe you can school me on this -These vehicles are called Sturmgeschütz as the over all term. Then there is the logical abbreviation - Stug... but what and why is the term Stuh used- what is the difference.
Is Stuh just another form of Stug which incorporates the next Ausf. designation of H, substituting the g in Stug with an h?

James,
StuH refers to the Sturmhaubitze 42, which mounted a 105 mm howitzer instead of the usual 75mm gun on the Stugs. I believe these were made from Ausf F and G Stugs. Other than the gun, its pretty much a Stug.

Evan is right on that one.

I think you should do just that and build a StuH with the wide type muzzle brake. They are the coolest.

If you had to do with an interior, go with CMK...Their instructions are clear and their sets are always primo...Jaguar is ok...their instructions usually suck...they're black and white copies of photos, so they're the worst to try to read...however Evan, consider the set up of your model...I mean, an interior is not as important for a StuG/StuH...unless it's blown apart, all you have to see on the inside is the coupola and then possibly the hatches to the right of the coupla and possibly the cluthes too...maybe just make a dio and stuff the StuG/StuH with some crewmen or something...so with that in mind, screw the interior...save a few bucks and build it without one :lol:
