Thanks! I'm glad you like it. Hopefully, it'll light a fire in some folks and we'll see more entries in the ordnance category at R'con. Everything I did is more or less applicable to cars, planes, and sci-fi, and fantasy as well. I'm sure some of you out there have a Warhammer Orc tank or two...

I love weathering - it's my favorite part of painting now tbh. I'm going to be definitely using your WIP information/guide on a lot of my new projects!

 

As for this one, it's amazing!! Absolutely awesome - love it so much!

Thanks all! Weathering, even minor weathering, can help pop the model. I generally go for weathering associated with dry(ish) climates - summer, desert, etc. I leave the vehicles covered in wet and/or caked mud to others. That.s not to say you can't go to town...

Great work Glen! Tried a few of your techniques on my latest armor. Always good to add some new techniques to the arsenal. I know I will have some entries for ordnance this year, just refining my work now.

Thanks! Looking forward to seeing your stuff ...and everyone one else's as well. There will no doubt be a flood of tanks, aircraft, starships, and Imperial Walkers on the Ordnance tables this year. Panzer Vor!

      Welcome to this step-by-step build, painting, and weathering of the 1/35 scale Tamiya Sturmgeschutz III Ausfurung B self-propelled gun. The German terms Sturmgeshutz (assault gun) and Ausfurung (model or variant) are normally abbreviated as StuG III Ausf B and that's what I'll use here. If you've seen Ordnance 1 and 2, you'll have an idea what's about to happen. I was priming the pump.
       
      This will be a standard out-of-box build with what I call 'plus ten percent' in that there is some additional detailing that can be done with wire, sheet plastic, and a motor-tool (if you have one) or a sharp hobby knife. For the most part, this SBS is designed for those who have never built a plastic model, those who have only built a few, or those who haven't built a model in a loooong time. We'll be removing mold and construction seams, test fitting and aligning parts, a bit of putty work, etc. Nothing fancy; all basic stuff really. Much of what is done here is equally applicable to any other plastic model whether cars, ships, aircraft, or spaceships. Only the shapes and paint colors are different. Do keep in mind that the techniques described here are not the end-all-do-all of modeling. People tend to develop their own techniques and styles over time just like figure painting. Hopefully, this SBS will grease the skid...
       
      Tools and Materials: The adhesives are standard plastic model liquid cement - Testor's and Ambroid Pro-Weld. These are the ones I have and use; others, like Tamiya, are just as good. The tools are standard modeling tools that are pretty much the same as what we use to assemble resin and metal figures. I use a combination of Testor's Model Master Enamels, Mr Color acrylic lacquers, Reaper MSP acrylics, colored pencils, and chalk pastels for the painting and weathering. I use an airbrush for the main painting/weathering and brushes for the washes and detail painting. For the most part, I'll be following the kit assembly sequence with a few deviations to facilitate painting. I'll be posting new installments every 2-3 days or so.
       
      The Kit: Tamiya's StuG III kit was first produced in 2005 and incorporates parts from a StuG III Ausf G kit produced earlier. Both kits are part of the new breed kits which hand better detail, fit, finish, and flexible polystyrene tracks. The kit has four sprues (or trees) molded in a darkish gray plastic (emulating the paint used by the Germans up to early 1943) and includes a turned aluminum gun barrel and a small fret of photo-etch detail parts. Decals are included for five StuG IIIs; all in dark gray with one in Greece during the Balkans Campaign and four on the Eastern Front in the summer of 1941. The completed model is about six inches long and 3.25 inches wide.
       
      Questions and Comments are welcome throughout the SBS. No secrets here. I'm sure there will be some tangents, but it would help if the majority of the questions are about the relevant installment, so we (mainly I) can stay on track. Oooh, look! Beer!
