The model arrives in an extremely 'full' looking box! It's another of those that are difficult to get closed again afterwards. As usual, this is because there are a lot of disparate sprues included from different original releases, and nearly every sprue contains a good number of parts marked as 'Not for use', as can be seen from the scan of the parts map on the first page of the instructions shown below. IN addition to the mass of grey styrene parts, we have a large photo-etched brass fret, three sheets of aluminium pop-out Schurzen, a wire tow rope, and a small transparent sprue.

If you're interested in this one, the chances are that it's not the first StuG you've built, and there are very few surprises in store. Construction begins naturally enough with the assembly of the various running gear components onto the separate one-piece slide moulded hull, along with the construction of various structural components to be fitted to the hull. The running gear consists of paired roadwheels, superbly moulded with manufacturer log on the sidewall, a two-piece drive sprocket, and choice of idler wheel between welded cast and tubular wheels, and a choice between three types of return roller too. At this stage, the flame dampening (Flammentoter) exhausts are also constructed and fitted to the separate rear hull wall in readiness for fixing the hull. The tracks supplied are of the 'Magic Track individual link type, and as is becoming common in Dragon kits, they are supplied in two different shades of grey. The idler wheel can be fitted in such a way as to remain moveable so that its position can be altered later in the build.
