Built this same kit about a decade ago with mine converted into a StuH instead to depict one of the trial vehicles deployed at Kursk; I like to try and depict variants not always planned on by the manufacturer. That's just me. Anyways, I really like the paint job and weathering.

Yeah, outrageous! I've even seen this on 1:1 scale German Sturmgeschütz builds!

Cool photo, terrible pain job. That was tongue-in-cheek as yes, I know Aberdeen's policy on enemy combatant vehicles. As in don't paint 'em.

Very nice work! I have always been a fan of the StuG and I totally like what you did with this one: great painting and weathering, worn down but in a realistic way! I really do hope, RFM or Takom or maybe MENG are coming out with a full line of Pz.III and variants with full interiors soon... it's about time for those guys to be depicted after all those zillions of Tigers and Panthers and now Pz.IVs...

In all the time on this site, it would be hard to count the number of times where comments regarding some particular build are both complimentary and/or point out a minor flaw or error, or question the builder's choices in construction. In most cases, the builder may acknowledge the comment & may explain their decisions. Just as often, someone with more expertise or knowledge of a particular subject may point out that the builder was right/wrong in their choice, explain what could/should have been done, indicate how the alleged flaw/error might have taken place in a real-world setting, or simply suggest that it's within the realm of artistic license. It's called constructive criticism, and everyone generally benefits from it since the intent is to enhance one's skills & improve everyone's knowledge about a particular subject. If I was wrong in my comment, I'd readily admit it. Apparently though, PanzerTim missed class that day. Rather than offering anything constructive, he makes a direct, personal attack, describing my post as, "an ass type thing." That's a sure sign of where his head is at.

Very thoughtfully expressed statement. I agree! Your comment from above was pointing something out, and it might have NOT been a flaw at all as another poster was showing. And you just said that you were ready to accept a misconception on your side. That's the purpose of a discussion alas a forum! Anyway, just don't give him the same treatment, meaning your last sentence. You don't have to stand for that, do you?

The Aberdeen vehicle is in a poor state. The fenders would have been fitted to the hull.
