I've used the metal schurzen on my Stug IV, it really is top notch stuff

Nice review, especially for those of us who are zimmerit challenged. That unidentified unit sure was famous. Issued everything, and fought on all fronts. No wonder it's so popular.

Well done, Bill. I have this kit, and think it is one of the nicer Dragon offerings to date. The zimmerit looks fantastic, and the new parts are welcome additions to a very popular vehicle. This makes a great addition to the late kits of the Stug III Ausf. G.

One suggestion for Dragon - add a plastic template for assembling the magic track individual links. Would be very useful.

Thanks, Scott, it DOES seem like the best of the StuGies so far....

Would like to see Dragon re-release the earlier StuGs in updated form.

It figures! I took too long modifying a 6454 kit to this exact spec of StuG III so I guess I need to buy another one to have both!

Nice kit and review too Bill!

Thanks, Jeff. This looks like one of those "if you're only going to build one Stugie," or "I HAVE TO HAVE 'EM ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
