It’s been a while but, here’s my latest build, the Tamiya 1/48 Stug III. I included a bunch of in progress pics to show my process on armor. Hope you like it!

Scott, that is a really good looking Stug, at first I thought it was 1/35th. Nicely painted and weathered, too. Tamiya does some good armor and softskins kits in 48th, useful in dioramas with aircraft, don’t take up as much room as 35th, if space is an issue.

Thanks Bernard. I do like Tamiya’s 1/48 armor (and aircraft too–come to think of it, I haven’t made a Tamiya kit I didn’t like).

Love your progress shots – AND the end result(s)…nice work! 🙂
Thanks Craig. I hope the progress pics are helpful to someone out there.

I echo what has been said above. I too thought it was a 1/35th scale build. The end results are fabulous. I too like Stugs !!!! I have one almost done on the work bench and a few more to build in the stash…………….
I really like this one Scott.
Thanks Louis. I see at least two more Stugs in my future. But a 1/72 Spitfire and 1/48 Betty (Tamiya of course) are now on the production line.

Exellent build Scott and interesting scale. I won t tell my wife about 1/48 armor takink less space though otherwise I might have to dump my stash in 1:35. 😛
Thanks Michel. I’m a firm believer in a multi-scale stash: 1/144, 1/72, 1/48, 1/35, 1/32 😁.

You have created a very nice build Scott,Tamiya has gone into the 1/48 scale in a big way there are some fine kits,you have done this one proud,it’s good to see this scale represented and as Michel said if this size was around more when i started I would have a lot more room on my shelves.I enjoyed the pics.Thanks
Thanks Jim. I’m glad Tamiya has pushed other manufacturers to do 1/48 armor too. I have a Korean War Sherman from Hobby Boss that looks like a nice kit waiting…

I like Stugs, too. I recently saw a video of one that had been found in a swamp area in Ukraine or somewhere. They winched it out of the mud, hosed it down and towed it away. The treads worked perfectly and the paintwork was pristine.
Rob, did you see that video on YouTube?

Scott, a really nice build, “yes”, I like it a lot ! Its one of those models I’ll return too a few more times to view.
Thanks Terry. I’m humbled that you would take more than one look.
