1⁄35Stug III Ausf A Build
Stage 7 This covers the right hand fender, and there is a surprising amount of work here to tackle. The main fender has nice checker pattern on both the top and bottom, but it should be noted that the image in the instructions is not correct; a tab is shown near the rear and I spent some time thinking I had the wrong part before realising the image must be wrong. With that said the parts do fit as instructed. Parts R28 and MA13 (I believe the parts replicate a tool for securing track ends together) have some locating recesses under them that need to be filled and I missed until too late. There is a large storage box that fits at the rear and this should be fitted after the jack due to space requirements. Stage 8 Now we get to the left hand fender and I find my first miss identified part; the instructions show Part (B18) and the image is of a convoy light, Part (B18) is a tail light and the convoy light is part (A13); I used the convoy light as my limited reference material would seem to indicate that is what should be there. There is again some locater tabs that need to be filled and I again tackled this with ‘Perfect Plastic Putty’ this allowed me to apply and wipe and so retain the checker pattern that sanding would have destroyed.
