Hi Everyone,

Started building my Stug 3, I brought a Atak field mod kit and I also got a resin remote MG for the top and going to do a late war stug.


Here are some pics,


Cheers Ken

Hi Everyone,
I got an Asiatam hull for it and I have glue the concrete armour on, changed the mantlet and glue the bolt on armour plate from the front of the original plastic hull to the front of the new hull.

Next on the list is to make the new hatches for the loader as its going to have the remote MG they need to open the opposite way to what they were, then its mount the MG and make mounting points for the logs and its onto paint which hopefully by then my new airbrush will be here... ;D ;D ;D. Also the spare road wheels are getting moved and frame work will be made up for the equipment stowage on the back..... ;D ;D

Cheers Ken

Hi Everyone, Thanks Strato50,
Got a bit bored waiting for my parts from Welshdragon to arrive so I did some colour modulation on it only subtle but its there, also repainted the yuk gloss black metal tracks ready to be weathered at a later date.......... ;D ;D. Oh also mounted the MG and started the hatches but not happy with them and will more then likely redo them........ :Smile :Smile :Smile :Smile

Cheers Ken

I love the Stug! I need to get one.

I like the logs for side, but not a big fan of the cement armour.
Can't wait to see the finished product.

I like the Elmod systems, heard nothing but good things about. Maybe one day I'll get one.


Maybe for a Stug too!Very Happy

Clark's are the reason tank destroyers can be viable in combat, what was so bad about yours?

Hi Strato50,
The biggest thing for me was the sound, it was absolutely terrible.... also wasn't a big fan on how the controls were set up for it either.
I have since set up a Clark TK 22 for one of our club members and yeah sound was a bit better then my TK20 but still not the best and still very quiet too.
Should point out I am only talking about the engine sounds, the gun and turret sounds were fine.

Having mostly Tamiya tanks you tend to get spoilt with sounds, likewise having Elmod set ups as well doesn't help.

These are just my opinions and I am not out to cause problems with anyone......Neutral Neutral

Yea that's not a complaint without warrant; I've said so on rcu, the Clark is great for those of use that want a fun, simpler battler with excellent functions and ease of setup. For those of us more on the scale model side of things it makes sense to use el mod, it's built around awesome scale sounds. There's lots of middle ground still :p

Thanks Airbrushler,

I just did the piece of track for along the front of the hull......Very Happy 

Not sure if I will leave the strap that holds it as is or paint it to match the tank.

Cheers Ken

That is excellent camo work, and the paint chipping is especially nice Razz
