StuH 42:It's driving me crazy!!!!

AAARRGGHHH!!!! Could Dragon be so wrong???? I can't find a pic of a StuH 42 with regular mantlet and waffle zimmerit!! Vehicles with zimm, always carries saukopf mantlet.
Any help????? And I don't want to mention the lack of schurzen in a 50 US$, last generation kit Grrrrr!!!!!!

Dario.
You already know I agree with you.
The decorations offered by Dragon do not match the kit and to be quite honest, I doubt this very kit is worth the money as it seems almost impossible ( as I said : almost) to find pictures of such a version. My two cents is : stay away from any zimmerited Dragon kits. Up to now, none seems to be allright but above all, none seems to match the decorations offered. Same thing happened with the zimmerited Panther D. Wrong Zimmerit pattern anyway.

If you remember the Pz II Ausf C discussions, among the decorations offered, only onematches the kit ... weird isn't it ?

note to Philip : Thanks for the link but it's funny how people keep on making the same mistakes ... one of the pic on this page is a censored picture. In fact this one :
http://www.panzernet.net/panzernet/f...stuh42/015.jpg
so here it is :

and here's the very same Stug, picture some minutes later (or earlyer)

Funny how the long barrel comes and goes ...
;o)

What??? There is Photoshop in the 40's???? How they delete the muzzle?

Now, seriously: is not possible that the muzzle were removed and then changed for damage or something?

Anyway, 2 more pics of the same Ausf. F

Text say something about the vehicle was in KUBINKA, 1946; may be it was the same vehicle that is today in the Kubinka Museum?

Thanks
