While waiting for a LW list (and instead of doing useful stuff like basing infantry) I’ve tried to convert a BF StuG to a more Finnish appearance as it would have looked in early June 1944.
The modifications includes removing the commander cupola front reinforcement, moving the spare road wheels to the sides of the superstructure, a stowage box on the rear hull and modelling rivets on the front plate (I’ve trimmed these down in size a bit after taking the picture).
Now all I need is a DT tank MG in 1:100 to put in the now empty MG shield, any suggestions?
I probably end up trying to scratch build one…
A excellent recap of the changes made on the Finnish StuGs can be found on Andreas Lärkas even more excellent website.
*Edit* Heh, I was a bit unsure if the commanders hatch opens backwards or forwards, but here on my own blog I have the most famous Finnish StuG picture ever, that clearly show the hatch opened…
