Its almost done, i need to tone down the rust from the tracks and weather them more, weather the damages on side armor, paint the steel cable on the back, do more work on exexaus and few other thingies but thats just small fixes.

hi Mirko,
Clean assembly and nice painting. I think the reddish color on tracks will be more realistic as weathered. rusty effect on exhaust looks good.I liked the damage on side panels but IMHO the ones on the left looked too regular to me and the two on the right looked some big. dont forget to paint the spare wheels

Best regards

Really looks good and heavy metal . I agree on tracks too reddish,a nd i have a fear that the side skirts back holes might look some big, but then again u never know who fired them. As u finish weathering on this one will be super. Good job there

Another good one mate
I agree with Kev, might wanna tone down that rust a bit.
Other than that it's great!
Cheers

Mirko your Stug looks great! I too think by toning down the rust you will have an even better model.
Can't wait to see it finished.

Thank you all for replies.

Well i wrote before the pics that i need to tone down wash and weather some more on tracks and exehaust, you are all right about that. So far i only rusted them with pigments i got from Costas, nothing else. i think they will turn out okay when washed/drybrushed and matt coated

Im glad this one is coming to end slowly.

any more comments?

Hi Mirko

Nice work so far. Everything about the exhaust has already been said. What I would do is add another wash, especially near the rivets/bolts or however you call them I think they will come out nicer then!

So, my advice is an extra overall wash and local washes at those rivets on the shields and hull.
