Open Fire! Sturmgeschütz III
This model was easier to put together than the Shermans in the boxed set, but it still had a few gaps at the joins. That said, at least the pieces fit.
I originally intended to paint on the camouflage stripes using my airbrush, but in the end I opted to just try to stipple them on, as I never seemed to have enough time to setup the airbrush for a painting session. I may still try the airbrush method later on, but so far the stipple method seems to work passably well.
I was not too excited to paint a nazi flag on the vehicle, but then...it's a Wehrmacht vehicle, so there it is... I made sure during the weathering stage to soil the flag with plenty of dirt. Ultimately, this StuG will see plenty of service on the Flames of War battlefield...getting blown to smithereens by the Allied Forces.
