Thanks Florian,

I see that you did used the rivets on your fenders, sometimes you see bolts on the fenders.
I am in a doubt what i gonna use, i like both , difficult to choose :roll:

I also wanne make theholders for the side skirts, to protect the wheel, but i can not find mutch info about that.

Best regards Yves

Hello Yves,
i like the rivets. It looks good.
I think the side fenders spoil the overall picture of the StuG. Maybe I'll do the mounts.
I think there is a StuG from Revell with the side fenders.

cheers
Florian

Hello Florian,

Thanks for the compliments guys,

The hull got his first layer of Tamiya TS-3 dark Yellow and a weld on the back.

Did also some welding on the top back of the stug,
and made a lift hook.

Today arrived the telescoop from Armorpax.
