STUG III Production Validation Build

Post by Armortek » Wed Jul 29, 2020 10:39 am

Production of the STUG III is now in full swing. Machining of the large hull plates is pretty much complete as are the hundreds of road wheels.

Lots of 5 axis work on this kit, so that will keep our machining centres busy for the next few weeks.

That is looking very good! Great to see the production is in full swing :-)

Were there any adjustments in tolerances necessary to the parts in relation to the previous batch a couple of years ago? Maybe due to different machinery?

Looking forward to see more pictures as the production is progressing 👍🏼
Kind regards,
