StuG III: Actual Build 5 (5) My latest scale model project is a Sturmgeschutz 3 ausf. G, or better known as a StuG 3G. Below you find a few pictures of the building proces: First batch of parts is spray painted in grey etch primer After the first layer of primer, an red oxide primer layer is added The first parts of the lower hull have been painted on the inside, in a satin grey finish The motor mounts are painted in gloss black Satin grey will mark the technical compartment First parts are sprayed in Sand Yellow, all parts have three layers of paint. Track tensioning system Final drive casings and return rollers assembly, loosely fitted Torsion bars were fitted, not set in the proper angle yet. Idlerwheels, road wheels, return rollers and sprockets loosely fitted Working on the mudguards, glueing on the etched plating Wheels fitted and engine deck basically finished Engine deck covers closed Engine deck covers opened Engine deck interior, light grey with black steel parts Polycarbonate floor plate, brackets for the electronics designed, printed and mounted Motors, batteries and components placed Designed and printed two casings for the switches and charging ports Mounted underneath the engine deck, lines up perfectly with the present holes Hatches open and there are the switches 🙂 Nice and clean, and out of sight while driving Printed a protection guard for the speaker The speaker can be hinged upwards to access the battery The speaker houses nicely behind the large hatch First power up on the lead acid batteries, two in series make 25 volts I designed a junction box to organise all the connections With some over length in the cables so the engine deck can be taken off and set aside Fighting compartment built, added simulated welding lines Started with the gun mechanics Couldn’t resist doing some overall fitting 🙂 (still high on blocks here) How would you rate this article?
