Very convincing rifling Simon! Looks fantastic! Superb details on the crane.

I love the Sturm tiger-Pak43 armed gun tank! Awesome! Would like to see more of that!

Very cool details - Seasons Greetings!

glad to see it finished!!!!,
heavy scorching!!, looking at this picture I think the whole of the front of the tank would be blackened, not a lot or actual pictures show this but that could be down to age/weather.
whats next,

yeah your right chris, thats why i'm lost with it, more soot, scorching, perhaps, looking at the morters in the old photo's the barrels are very clean, did they ever get the chance to fire?, thanks for the observation. regards simon.

hello simon,
this is the best picture I can find of any blackening from firing these rockets, although there are a lot of shadows and picture quality is not good, but it shows some scortching marks!!, wonder how well the mg and headlight stood up to the heat exhausted from the rocket,

Another interesting photo, i have blackened the barrel a bit more since the photo's posted and it does look a bit more convincing, it's all guesswork on these sturms, regards simon.

Hi Simon, the sturmtiger looks amazing, now if you would like some authentic rocket residue these come in all sizes and look similar to the rocket propelled round, just remove the stick. :twisted: :twisted:

Hi Jeff, it would be a laugh to fire one of those out of the sturm, regards simon.

Thanks for all who contributed, there are still a few things to finish, i am thinking of installing a detailed engine bay, but the sdkfz 7 is calling. this is the last post on this build unless something interesting comes up, all in all a very interesting vehicle but not a lot of info out there, the last of the photo's, regards simon.

Just to keep the Sturmtiger Thread alive, here's a Diorama made by a friend of mine, even better when seen up close, regards simon.
