Trumpeter TRU00947 Scale Model kit
About this deal
It's excellent armour and powerful gun made it highly effective at destroying enemy tanks, and its low profile made it difficult for enemy tanks to target. It all comes together with a bit of fiddling and clamping. You will never see the exhaust ring unless you have the cowlings off, but they're there, anyway here they are, the pushrods still need a bit of fiddling so they line up This weapon was highly effective against both enemy tanks and infantry and was capable of firing a variety of ammunition types, including high-explosive rounds, armour-piercing rounds, and high-velocity anti-tank rounds.

The StuG III Ausf.G Late Production was a highly effective and versatile German assault gun that played a significant role in the German military's armoured warfare tactics during World War II. It was developed as an upgrade to the earlier StuG III models and featured several improvements in both armament and armour. DML made an excellent 'early StuG III ausf.G' kit first in the mid-2000s, but then started adding bits to make the 'mid' and 'late' versions, rather than make a proper late version from scratch. So they forgot to change some of the details as they went along, or got them wrong, or mixed up which factory, thus their mid-late kits are a right mishmash of features. Dragon's 6593 builds an Alkett vehicle only (Dragon don't tell you this), but 6593 itself is a problem for a 'Dec.44' build (as it says on the box) as the toothed toweyes were in force well before then at Alkett and this kit doesn't have them.

Trumpeter Military Models Trumpeter headquarters is located in Zhongshan, China and is a highly respected plastic model kit manufacturer.

The StuG III Ausf.G Late Production was used extensively on both the Eastern and Western Fronts of the war. I'd probably be better just sanding all the detail off the floor!! Actually a couple of years this is probably what I would have done as well as building up all the stringer detail from strip. Here, the ejector pin marks are filled with Mr Dissolving Putty. They will be sanded smooth when dry I thought the holes in the floor would be easy to fill with some evergreen strip, unfortunately I had none the proper size so just laid some thin strip over the top of them. I used my cutter to ensure they were all cut to the same length.
In addition to its use as a tank destroyer, the StuG III Ausf.G Late Production was also used to provide fire support for infantry and to engage enemy fortifications. Overall, the StuG III Ausf.G Late Production was a highly effective and reliable assault gun that played a significant role in the German military's armoured warfare tactics during World War II. Once the floor is painted they will hardly be noticed, thats the plan anyway. Looking at this pic of the Dak kept at the South Australian Aviation museum, you can see the kit interior bears little resemblance to an actual RAAF interior anyway, there are no ribs along the floor as depicted on the kit floorNext the interior. As this machine was used to ferry ordnance the seats were removed. Bewdy I thought, no fitting umpteen PE seat belts. unfortunately no seats means the location holes had to be filled on the floor and some ejector pin marks filled on the fuselage interior where they could be seen by peering through the door
Its versatility and reliability made it a valuable asset to the German military, and it remained in production until the end of the war. These days with limited time for modelling and a large stash that I want to build, my philosophy is to just build. Correcting the interior would add many hours to the build for little return, plus I want to get this finished for a coming comp.

As soon as this kit was introduced, I had been desperate to get hold of one. The level of detail, combined with the size to show it off got the ‘juices’ going, it was going to happen. In this pic. one fuselage half has been painted as well as the floor. The subject of my build A65-121 was disposed of to the Indonesians and there are very few pics -(read no) pics of her that I could find . The Late Production variant of the StuG III Ausf.G was produced from 1943 to 1945 and featured several improvements over earlier versions.
