First Look: 75mm KwK 37 / StuK 37 German Tank Ammo
  • A35-002_00

FIRST LOOK REVIEW

Armorscale set contains 12 brass shells and nine machined aluminum projectiles of 75mm German ammunition used (according to instructions) in following vehicles:



  • Pz.Kpfw. IV Ausf. A-F1

  • Pz.Kpfw. III Ausf. N

  • StuG III Ausf. A-F

  • Sd.Kfz. 234/3

  • Sd.Kfz. 250/8

  • Sd.Kfz. 251/9


  • Three types of projectiles are provided (3 pieces of each)



  • standard armor-piercing round (AP) Pzgr.Patr.39

  • high explosive anti-tank round (HEAT) Gr.Patr.38 HI/C

  • standard high-explosive round (HE) Sprgr.Patr.34.


  • The set comes in a small plastic zip-bag containing a piece of cardboard, small instruction sheet and all ammo parts. Instruction sheet includes painting information for all three types of ammunitions and identifies included ammo types.



    Parts are precisely machined with very tiny details reproduced nicely. The fit of aluminum projectiles to brass shells is good, but tightens when parts are pushed together and it is actually not possible to push the round all the way into the shell without using considerable force. This means that it is rather one time assembly, as once properly assembled these parts would be difficult to separate.



    in conclusion

    Expertly machined Armorscale ammunition should be excellent addition to German armor models or dioramas.

    Many thanks to Armorscale for the review sample

    About Pawel Krupowicz (Vodnik)
    FROM: WARSZAWA, POLAND

    As first lines of this bio appear under all my reviews, I feel it is important that I start with this information: In March 2005 I ventured into the other side of modeling "industry" - I was not only building model kits, but also helping design them as a consultant for Dragon Models Ltd.. These days...
