I wanted to built a more early version, relatively pure and not too much messed up with equipment, boxes and tarps as seen in late war photos.
course I first did my homework and read Doug Chaltry's review of the
available kits and conversions on this site. So I bought at last the
1/72 StuIG 33 kit from Attack Models as base for it.
For the first time I tried to create some slight track sag just by carefully bending the upper Revell track part with my fingers.
added some bolts to Revell's front part, added some tools like an
axe, shovel and fire extinguisher from my spare parts box.
some reason the kit’s etched box cover was too small to cover
the opening (production error?) so I also needed to replace it with
plastic sheet, using the hinges of the original piece by cutting them
out with a sharp blade.
The model is painted by brush, using Revell enamels.
