Sturmhaubitze 42 Ausf G

March 18, 2022 · in Armor · 12 · 1.1K

I would like to share with you a little dio I recently finished. It's the CyberHobby 10.5 cm Sturmhaubitze 42 Ausf. G (kit 6454). The molded on wafle pattern zimmerit in this kit is very nice. The figures are from Miniart, winter tank crew (kit 35249). The base is a piece of styrofoam, which i covered with some plaster (gypsum) and modeling snow (can't remember the manufacturer). The trees are made from some bush plants I found. I wanted to achieve cold and frozen winter look. I hope you enjoy the pictures!

  1. Amazing hob, Erik! Indeed, a winter / frozen look is perfectly achieved!

  2. wow that is great

  3. @erikvkok, Very definitely "liked"! That is masterful work Erik, and the facial expressions of the crew are some of the best figure work I've seen! ?

  4. Nice job, Erik. Winter scenes are not easy to pull off. Again, fine job. @erikvkok

  5. Fantastic work, Erik @erikvkok
    The entire diorama looks very realistic.
    Love the winter environment .

  6. The temperature in the room went down ten degrees while viewing this. 🙂

    Very nice!

  7. Awesome build, you absolutely nailed the frozen winter look on the tank and the base. It is really a excellent display.

  8. Great diorama! Ad Great StuH! I have one comment. The uniforms of the crew should be as for artillery with red cap rims, without armored insignia (totenkopf) with a standard army bow.

  9. Thanks for your comment Lis, I followed the instructions from Miniart as I'm not an expert in this.

    • You can see on left early uniform, and late war uniform on right with normal Army markings. Color for artillery bands was red.

  10. Amazing build. How did you do your rusting affects on the armor, tracks, etc?

  11. Hi Joe, expect for exhausts, I usually use very little rust on my vehicles as it doesn't look very realistic to me. The brown colour you see is a brown paint mixed with a little mud/plaster and represents mud deposit on the lower parts and tracks, wheels and fenders.
