Great job on this big gun, Stug variant. The 105mm howitzer gave it a big punch. Awesome work painting the tank, figure, and making the base work. I like the PSC kits, but the simplified suspension leaves the track faces bare of detail. Bill

Out of curiosity - did this removal of the muzzle break really happen on the field?

Hi everyone,
thx for comments.
@panzerman825: We use PSC for wargaming, easy to build, lots of variants in one box, often a lot of additional parts and figures and a fair price in my eyes. But for display modelling ? No, tracks and road wheels simplyfied, missing details, overall detailing often to big (which for wargaming is nice because of easy paintjob).

@zirrian: common practice from autumn of 1944, because of material shortage on one side they came from factory without them, sometimes crews remove it because of muzzle flash when shooting makes it difficult to observe how accurate the shoots are.
There are some often published pics from StuH 42 missing muzzle break like from battle of Arnhem or a cpolor film from eastern front 1945 (Seelower Höhen i think).

If the level of detail on this PSC thing will be the same level as the painting I can write a great model.
So I can only write great painting to the plastic and the figure.

Nice paintjob, and simple but effective use of wash and drybrush.

Great Job on that simple but nice model kit. I like the appearance without muzzle brake.
