Good review Bill. Very complete with history, text and great images of the sprues. Hopefully youŽll follow this up with a build??

I agree with you Bill, this kit is a stunner and it was tough to get the box back closed!

The trick is to put the sprues back in exactly the same order as you take them out...of course, that's always easier said than done!

Thanks Bill, a great review,
am waiting on one of these kits myself (well part of it - its a long story) that i'm going to use as a base for an SU-76i conversion, so i'll look forward to the build review.

Cheers,

James

Nice review!

Now it is getting harder and harder to resist buying that kit.

Hi Bill ... or Mathew ..or anybody else who has this kit.
Wonder if one of you, could please scan or photograph the exhaust steps from the instructions.
I have the Revell flammpanzer, which is mostly the Dragon M/N version with a few additional parts by Revell. I also built the Dragon M version a few years ago (so have the N details left over), and now want to build the N version based on an earlier chasis, and not with the deep water exhaust system.
I have a few reference books, and have the necessary parts ...just want to see what the kit instructions say!
Thanks a million.

Hi Bill. Your a gentleman ... thanks very much. I didnt get a chance to check in yesterday either, and Im at work now. IŽll save it when I get home this evening. I dont have the parts B21 and B22, but have them in the Stug III smart kit, so I can make foil copies and show them damaged, as was the case quite often. Thanks again.
