Thanks to Warlord games for another excellent kit.
Warlord Games 1/56 StuG III Ausf G
Based on the reliable Pz.Kpfw III chassis, the Sturmgeshütz (StuG) III had a good 75mm gun, good armour and was one of the few German AFVs to serve for virtually the whole of the Second World War on all fronts. This kit gives you two options to build; either the StuG III Ausf G or the Sturmhaubitze (StuH) 42 with a 105mm infantry support gun. As mentioned many times before, this kit by Warlord is primarily aimed at wargamers but it is of a high enough standard to appeal to scale modellers as well.
The kit is reasonably comprehensive; its 72 parts are held on a pair of sprues in dark grey plastic plus a busy set of Warlord decals, two Bolt Action Statistic Cards and three damage markers representing white and black smoke and fire. The upper hull detail is particularly well done which is typical of a wargaming piece.
Scale modeller or wargamer, there is something for both of you here. Thanks to Jamie Tranter at Warlord Games for supplying this kit for review which is available at www.warlordgames.com.
