1/35 Academy 'Stug IV'
This is the Academy Stug IV. Pretty simple kit, but at 1/2 the price of other similar kits on the market its pretty good. Went together well and wnen it's all finished it definitely looks like it's ready for action.
I've always wanted to do a German tank covered in foliage but could never quite find the right stuff that looked 'real' enough until I stumbled on the model railway bushes I've used here.
The crew figures are a mixture of parts from my spares box. The infantry are the Dragon kits: 'German Panzergrenadiers' and 'German soldiers at rest'.
Currently I'm trying to stop making too many dioramas as I'm quickly running out of shelf space for my builds, but I REALLY want to put this in one. However for now, I'm staying strong...
