Syrian Sturmgeschutz III

Recommended Posts

I started this on vacation. This is a really nice kit. A few instruction issues but has gone together nicely. I will be subbing a DshK for the Breda 12.7mm that most believe these were equipped with.

Mark,

 

Can't really tell from the black & white phote , but I'm not sure if the Syrian version retained the zimmerit?

Most of us believe these two to be of the same vehicle. To my knowledge, there is only one other photograph of Stugs in Syrian active service before they became static pillboxes and IDF Artillery targets.

I've always wanted to do one of those, the Panzer IV and the Jagdpanzer IV in Syrian service in 1/72 scale. Maybe someday.

Duke,

Same here. I have the old Dragon 9021 kit (it comes with the Syrian markings). However, I will probably get one of their newer versions (6397, 6589) and use the decals from the older kit..

This kit really has been a joy. Other than the instructions and I should have mounted the mantlet before gluing the casemate on, it has been a real treat.

What a Dragon Kit with Instruction issues, NO WAY!

I know! I can handle all the mismarked parts. That I am used to since they started making Shermans over and over and over and using parts from one and another from another. But to actually miss parts that are on the sprues but not on the instructions really surprised me.

Last weeks progress. Not really much visible. Added stuff to the Commanders hatch. Added the intakes and attached a front track holder that was stolen from a Tamiya Panzer IIIN.

One of my Christmas gifts was seasons 1-6 of Castle and Mrs. Treadhead and I have been having a nightly Castlethon that has prevented me from building. However, I buckled down this weekend and almost have the Stug ready for paint. The TAHK DShK was broken in two places but I was able to repair it. I have only the shield to finish and I can get paint added to it. The Fruil track are also done.

Ahh, Becket in her blue blazer when she walked into the Russian Poker Room was my thrill :smiley32: . Also at the Sci-Fi convention, the last scene. OOOFA. Hate those shoes though.

 

Oh the model, great work as usual my friend. What ever happened to the IDF M-12 you were working on? I couldn't find an update on it.

Chris,

I hate not being able to build but I think Mrs. TreadHead enjoys the DVDs more than I.
