Dragon StuG III Ausf. C/D DAK 1/35

Hi everybody,

This is Dragon's old StuG III C/D revamped into one of them elusive DAK short-barelled StuG's from z.V.B. 288.

Besides the actual model itself, I used also Eduard's photo etch package, a metal barrel from RB, an antenna from RB, quite a bit of resin from Black Dog (primarily their StuG kurz package, a bit from their Pz.Kpfw. III stuff), and quite a bit of scratchbuilding. On the scratchbuilding side, I made out of thin metal and other assorted pieces the sand filters, the wiring of the headlights and their protection, and the points for attachment the extra roadwheels. Finally, I took one of the MiniArt DAK figures and an MG34 from another Dragon kit.

The project is in a pretty advanced stage, a few finishing things here and there (i.e. the neck of the figure, the luggage at the rear deck needs some more treatment, painting the stop lights, stuff like this). I'll also post a few earlier images, just to keep the story going.

So here's an early one, still assembling:

First painting pass and post-shading. I used Tamiya acrylics:

First test of the chipping -- all hand-painted:

First weathering pass. At this point I was considering two figures, but as I am not particularly happy with my figure painting skills, I dropped one of them. For the weathering I used primarily AK/Mig filters and washes:

Second weathering pass, with the tracks on. This one was mainly AK/Mig pigments:

And finally, the current state of the project, with a small base for the model as well. The tools are also on:

Thank you very much for your time and attention -- any and all comments would be most welcome! I still consider myself young and inexperienced in the hobby (alas, just in the hobby ) so all opinions and recommendations will be really appreciated.
