1/35 Tamiya Stug. III Ausf. G
Posted by Mopar Madness on Sunday, September 03, 2017 4:16 PM

Hello friends.  Well, armor is kind of taking over my modeling interest; particularly the German stuff.  My collection of unbuilt Luftwaffe subjects are definitely taking a back seat... for now.  Here is my latest build, the Tamiya Stug. III Ausf. G.  What a great kit and fun build!  My only gripes are the string cables and the tracks.  The tracks are kind of loose so they don’t lay flat on the upper rollers.  Can you please tell me a fix for this???  Also, I really couldn't master the string tow cables so I didn’t include them.  There was too much fuzz around the string to look good. Tongue Tied  I’m trying new techniques so this one is weathered more than my first two.  Please feel free to look and comment! Beer

Thank you Marcus!   I must admit I struggled with the amount of weathering to add. I really wanted to make it look as though it hadn't seen a ton of action yet.  I'm a construction manager so I have access to heavy construction equipment  on one or two of my job sites . The vehicles that are 5 to 10 years old don't show a lot of rust or wear and tear even though they are kept outdoors . I'm talking about scrapers, bulldozers, road graders, etc... Albeit, I'm sure paint and primers on these caterpillars are much sturdier than back then.  Beer

MM,

That looks awesome sir! I think you did a bang up job on the amount of weathering you applied. Bow Down

Gee, I thought I'd already commented on this one- I think I got it confused with your earlier post. 

Anyway great job there, she does look worn but not overdone. Yes

You did a really good job on that kit!  Weathering looks right to me.  Most important, you seem to be having fun with the armor, and that is what it is all about.  Someone recently posted on the site "You cannot have more fun than weathering armor."  Having completed all of one armor kit, I do have to say the weathering was fun.

Hope you stay with the armor, as you are pretty good at it.
