Some other tweaks that I forgot to mention:
1. In Gary Edmundson's "Modelling the German 15cm sIG33 Bison and Grille", Gary scratchbuilt the stowage boxes and the measurements for the one in front are 48mm long x 12mm wide x 15mm high and the smaller one at the rear 52mm long x 11mm wide x 10mm high sloping to 8mm high at the rear.
2. Wrap two lengths of wire around the legs of the gun sight port cover (C6)
3. Added wire going to the Bosch head light
4. The fuel cover (A43) is upside down and should be turned around
5. Some but not all Sig33 B's had an exhaust deflector plate (based on the Stug F/8 chassis). Gary Edmundson embossed piece of lead sheet over the PE deflector from the STug III ausf F/8 kit
6.

Thumbs up Hmmm?!?

Hello Lawrence,

very nice zoom! It surely looks like whitewash remains!

This does not reall look like dirt - I have no idea how it could have happened that a whitewash is worn of under forst conditions soo quick but .....

BTW - you surely have eagle eyes :-)))

Bye,
Harry

No worries Harry

Also I would think that the winterketten was used when there was snow on the ground which would have necessitated winter camo. Photos of Stalingrad sIGs are quite rare and I haven't seen one in full winter camo.

I have been doing some research on this vehicle as it is on my long list of to do AFVs. Would like to see your sIG

Lawrence

Winterketten use ...

Hi Lawrence,

right now I'm travelling but on the next weekend I will put some pics of my SIG33 up on the net.
Concerning the winterketten: They have been in use as well, when the ground got very muddy in order to avoid getting stuck.

In any case: If it had a wintercamo I'm much happier - because I painted it with a faded winter camo :-))))

Ciao,
Harry

Lawrence,

Would the lower hull from the Tamiya early G kit be accurate for the sig? I was considering ordering some sprues from Tamiya for this, including the lower hull tub.

I would have to scratch some parts to make it all look right, but I was looking at the Tamiya G sprues and they are much better than Dragons. I don't have the Tamiya Stug III B kit.

I figured I might go this route since I have the Part PE set.

Paul

Well, who is stopping you? If you like to paint it in whitewash... go for it!

In a word - NO. The Tamiya Stug III Ausf G is an early model and it had the simplified front tow hold, square fan belt adjusting port cover in the lower middle of rear hull plate, later style exhaust deflector, revised rear upper hull, engine hatch armored covers that are oriented lengthwise, armored hatch covers for the two rear most hatches, no front and rear mudflaps and extended fenders front and rear to compensate for this.

Hope this helps

Lawrence

Lawrence,

Thanks for the feedback...and the photo, nice detail drawing.

I was only referring to the lower hull, the upper hull from the DML kit fits ok with some tweeking on the Tamiya lower hull.

Some of the stuff you mentioned can be modified/scratched to make a sig 33 hull...just an idea.

I was just wondering how much of a difference there was between the 2 hulls...
