Hi Pavel:

That is a great start, but I am surprised that you have not finished it yet. It's been more than 5 hours, and it seems that is all it usually takes you Wink .

Nice work on the StuG Very Happy

I have enough trouble detailing 1/35 kits, let alone trying 1/72 scale, so much kudos to you Smile

Do you have a particular paint scheme in mind for it?

Hi Pavel, I had to go back and check the scale of this at the top of the page! Shocked Marvelous diorama, and the stug is looking superb! A really neat pin wash, hard to believe it's braille!

Hello Pavel:

A really great little StuG there. And the small diorama is great too. I was looking at the fence and thinkin, "Oh I bet that gun barrel is going to be juuuuust peeking out of that hole in the fence" Wink . And the goose is a real nice touch too.

Many many thanks friends for kind comments.
It is very motivating for my next work.

Chipping and weatering are done.







And one attempt with AK product (kursk earth)
Who don't try AK products - I give one recommendation... USE IT because it works really great.
I try it on my next project - Pz.Kpfw. III Ausf.N form Dragon

used directly from the bottle(in hull with pigmets)




when it dries, use white spirit and wash it down (gently)




Next progress on StuG will be tomorrow.
I will use same method like up on Pz.III (only with darker color)

Hope you like it and try it Wink
Regards.
Pavel

I can hardly believe that this is 1/72 scale Pavel Shocked You've made a real masterpiece here and especially so with the little details on the vehicle and base
