Beautiful! How about this? Show a panzermann clambering off the Pz IVE onto the statue with a hacksaw in his hand and a sly grin on his face? Or maybe have a guy already on the statue's shoulders and his mate handing him the hacksaw? Entitle the scene "trophy hunter" or "head hunter"???

Interesting ideas T26E4. I might borrow the hacksaw thing. I will probably go with a Mk3 k or a mk 4 e at this point. I 'm off to Japan in the morning so I will see you guys again in a week.

Thanks for looking.

I know it's been said but the bronze and the bird sh@t is incredibly realistic.

Excellent stuff !

I finally decided on a vehicle

I have decided to go with a Stug 3 B.
I picked one up in Japan just recently and it as close as I can get (early war) to a SU-100 TYPE, VEHICLE PROFILE. I was able to get the new Tamiya B kit in Japan for only $25.00 AUD which was a steal, seeing it goes for between $60-70 in Australia.
I have already started to build it so I will post some shots soon.
See you then.

Stug3 is the vehicle of choice fior this one.

As I said in the last reply, I have decided to go with a Tamiya Stug 3 B.

...........
..............................................

I have a number of goodies to go with it - ABER, KARYA CABLES, LIONROAR TOOLS, kASTEN STOPPER AND BOLT DETAILS plus the relatively new Dragon Stug 3 crew. The overall feel of the kit is very good and fits in with the typical Tamiya profile - fits well, nice detail but plenty of room for additional work.

.

I will be modelling the vehicle as a Barbarossa veteran so it will have some wear and tear which is how I like it as it keeps it interesting for me. So far I have relaced the grab handle on the right hand side super strucure with a damaged copper one to simulate some small arms/ anti-tank rifle damage. I have also added some delaminating to the rubber on the wheels with my new best friend.
...

One of the other neat things around this kit is the basic interior and the chance to model it with the later style rear wheels. The interior is a good solid starting point for however much detail you want to add- I will only add a small amout to cover what can be scene through the open hatches.
..

I really 'dig' these early Stugs for there compact sinister profile - even more so than the later versions. The 'stepping' of the steel leading up to the front viewing / aiming hole is another aspect of this model that seems to add to the detail.
.
.

At this point I am going to use the 'saw' suggestion and have the crew loading shells under the statue while the commander looks up at it with a saw in hand, contemplating the arm and where to cut.
I will do some more over the weekend and post again soon (no really I will).

This will be great, that's for sure. The layout looks so good already.

I'll keep a close eye on that build.
