First update.



Its my first reference book for StuGs. I find it very useful and think its a must have when talking about StuGs.

I'll be using this excellent barrel by Aber.





The metal replacement sleeve for barrel fits perfectly plastic part so no need for any kind of extra work. Just simply replace plastic part.

And the decals from Manuel (Cyber-Hobby update set #2).

Looks good. Achtung Panzer is a great reference for StuGs, just wish it had more wartime photos.

Very cool book and agreed with you Evan, some more wartimes shots are needed there.

Worked on a rear deck recently, just few small parts missing now.







Thanks to reading of John's and Marco's threads managed to glue lifting hook the right way and spare wheel holders, too.

Some add-on armor

Postman dropped some new reference for StuG today.



This issue is much more basic compared to Panther G and Jagdpanther issues I bought earlier.

Some wartime pictures there but not to many.

Looks good so far Chris. I didn't like Jentz's book on the stugs, kinda just glosses over way too much.
