StuG III In the Light of Day
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

I thought we were talking about the StuG that is still at the Patton Museum...??

Still looking for my interior series from that one. As for the 'painted' StuG that went to Benning, I've got a fairly complete photo coverage....

Regards
Don

No, our StuG III doesn't have a coax. I've got a bunch of interior photos of the "painted" StuG, but I didn't take any details of the coax MG mount.

Hey guys,
can you send me all your pictures from your stugs?


Greeting, Cerberus,

That's a pretty broad request to put before the members here, many of whom have projects and paying enterprises for detail shots, such as Chris "Toadman" Hughes, who sells CD's of walkarounds as would be of interest to authors, modelers, enthusiasts, etc. I see you have a total of four posts on this discussion group and you might want to take a little time to cultivate the contacts here that can help you. Just asking for all their stuff might not be the most productive way to go. I realize that language might be an issue, but whether that's the case or not, membership here is quite international and thoughtful posters are not judged by grammar or language skills.

AFV News DG members are typically pretty generous when someone needs help with a project. Wink

Are you looking for pictures of this specific StuG III or any StuG III?
Do you need walkaround shots, with details for a modelling project?

There are still quite a few StuG III surviving (we have to thank the Finnish Army for many of them). So it's not hard to find good walkarounds online. The ones below may be a good starting point:

svsm.org/gallery/StuGIII-family
www.primeportal.net/ta...ug_iii_fk/
www.primeportal.net/ta.../stug_iii/
www.primeportal.net/ta.../stugiiig/

I suggest you look at them, do some additional research (Google can help) and see if you get all you need. In case you will still missing something, like a specific details or a question, open a dedicated thread on the forum, being as specific as possible and we will do our best to try and help you.

On top of that there are good quality books on StuG III many of them are written with modellers in mind, some of them are fairly inexpensive, like the ones from Squadron Signal, others may cost more. If you like books and have a budget to afford them, post here asking for suggestions. I have a fairly good collection and can speak by personal experience.

Well done, Massimo. Thank you!

I don't know about the relevance, but I have good pics of the Stug interior at Parola. It may be a Stug IV, and the color might be different as it was in Finnish service (as late as '66, if I recall correctly). I could post an example, if that has any bearing on color for Cerebus' project.

What happened to the StuH that used to be parked in front of the Replacement Battalion, over on the east side of the settled area of the post?

The StuH 42 that was at Ft Knox went to Ft Benning.
