  1. Hi Dutik, I used a product called XTC-3D and I am quite happy with it. This is the front side of an 1/16 Sd.Kfz 250/8 Stummel, I tried to sand down the printer lines a bit. Then I mixed up a bit of the XTC-3D product and applied it to the model. It is like a thick varnish and it spreads out evenly. I diluted it with aceton for the first time, so awaiting the result now. You can see the package, it is good for multiple 1/16 vehicles. This was my first 3D model I used it on, this is the result. Herzlichen Gruss aus Holland, Rob P.S. These are commercial available models, definitive NOT printed by me!
  2. Hi Chris, I am not familiar with Shermans, but there are a lot of after market decals! Have a look here: https://www.ebay.de/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2380057.m570.l1313&_nkw=1%2F16+sherman+decals&_sacat=0 The Trumpeter 1/16 panzer series all have around 2000+ parts, and they have interiors, so I quess this one has an (partial) interior. With regards, Rob
  3. I can't wait for this one. As soon as it arrives I will buy and build one! With regards, Rob from Holland
  4. Congrats with this beautiful build, this is my favorite Su in weeks. I do like the idea of red star kill marks!!!! Rob
  5. Hi all, My 2 Stugs are done! First up is the Heller Stug, fitted with an Atak zimmerit set. The T34 tracklinks at the front are not so bright as it appears in the photo's! This is the Das Werk Stug, with the Das Werk crew. The loader received another head! I used the AFV Modeller Bow replacementset, Smoke granate racks and StuH 42 barrel. I hope you like them! With regards, Rob from Holland
  6. Dito on the GR5 parts! With regards, Rob from Holland
  7. Hi Ron, I was there for 2 weeks while stationed Aruba in 1993, so a long time ago. One visit I still rememner is the Pre Columbian Gold Museum in the centre of San Jose, that is my no 1 recommendation. And I booked a lot of excursions to the jungle, also very nice! As I said, it has been a long time ago, but it is one of the best holidays I ever had. Happy traveling, Rob
  8. I have both the Das Werk Stug, and the Heller/Gallery/Trumpeter version and I like both of them equally! The Das Werk Stug has a basic interior, the Heller Stug has schurzen. All have their minor problems (Das Werk wrong nose plate, Heller has bad fender details) but I can live with that, although I bought a few of the AFV Modeller updates. Very soon Atak will bring out the first of 2 zimmerit sets, and hopefully a few update parts like a Saukopf mantlet as well, this will be the cause of buying a second Heller Stug! With regards, Rob from Holland
  9. If you are not interested in the RC stuff, you can sell those parts at a dedicated RC tank site! My guess is it will return about 40% of your purchase cost! But to be sure it's better to ask before buying. With regards, Rob P.S. Here is a link to a great site, with a Buy/Sell option and a thread with RC tank clubs world wide: https://www.rctankwarfare.co.uk/forums/index.php
  10. Hi guys, The Australian Armour and Artillery Museum are restoring/rebuilding a Stug and a Jagdpanther. They finished a Tiger 1 recently! In some video's you can see them welding together plates of the hull, and saying eaxactly what LSP_K2 said. I hope you guys will like these video's! Happy Holidays, Rob from Holland
  11. And now an addition: https://www.modellbau-koenig.de/Figuren/Resinfiguren-1-16/StuG-III-Crew-Infantry-Set-1-16 With regards, Rob
  12. Hi all, More evidence: https://www.modellbau-koenig.de/en/artikel/86334 With regards, Rob
  13. Hi guys, This is the announcement of the Pz.Kpfw III as included in the Stug kit: It is not my photo, I took it from facebook! With regards, Rob
  14. Hi Radu, I am sorry to say that you are totally wrong. Being a (mainly) a panzer builder I can assure you that specially in the 1/35 world there is a lot of moaning about the release of another Tiger, Panther Stug or......... And when there is moaning about releases, there are also comments like why not come with a .....? I, for my self, don't care for the 10th release of a Stug III. If I don't like it, I don't buy it. The 1/16 scale world isn't spoiled with many releases so far. The 2 Stug versions are a bit different, with or without schurzen, with or withour rack on the engine deck. And it looks like the upcoming Pz. III seems also to be different. And I also have thoughts like why don't they come out with a ........? It will be a garanteed moneymaker! But I don't feel the need to ventilate it, because I am sure manufacurers won't listen to me! So when I see an announcement being made about a new kit, I am happy! If I like the kit (being a plane, or a panzer (1/35 or 1/16) I buy it, or I simply don't paay any attention. What I really don't like is when people talking bad about a kit! If you don't like it, don't buy it, or buy it and improve it like mr Parker does with the 1/16 Trumpeter kits. On facial book there is a lot of talk about the radio's in the Das Werk Stug being the wrong kind. Well, I am sure if you blow that radio up to 1 to 1 scale, it won't transmit or receive any message, and 95% of the people (like me) don't know the difference of those radio's. And I am happy with people like mr Parker to make improvements for those kits, or a company like Atak to make zimmerit. Unfortunately those improvements are expensive, but if I like it, I save some money and buy it. Anyway, this posting is lasting to long! The only thing I would like to say to everybody: If you like a kit, buy it AND build it! With regards, Rob from Holland (who bought the Heller Stug, is waiting for his Das Werk Stug to arrive and who will buy the Trumpeter Stug with interior when it hits the market!)
