STuG III Ausf. F 1/15 (RC) Girls und Panzer
only 8 days later another tank with funky color scheme.
About this creation
This build was inspired by the Girls und panzer series.
It also allowed me to try and take another attempt at a STuG III. This time its the Ausf. F variant. Some of the major flaws that existed in my old STuG III Ausf. G was that the proportions weren't correct, it utilizes modified parts for the inaccurate suspension, and the drive sprockets were mounted at the rear instead of the front like on the real vehicle. So with this build I was able to incorporate quite a lot of SNOT work on the hull and kept the PF parts within the hull.
I was able to diverge from my standard color scheme of light grey and go to the complete extreme opposite colors necessary for a AFV. I was forced to not include most of the blue on this model because the only color that I have enough of blue of was the normal and dark blue instead of light blue. The tank features full torsion bar suspension, 2 XL motors with 20:12 gearing, lights, track tensioner, and gun traverse.





the Torsion bars are offset and staggered like on the real Pz. III chassis






The STuG has a low profile just add tall flags to fix that problem




double bevel 12 tooth gears control track tension, I think this function will be mandatory on every tank that i build now



gun traversed



Flags that flap majesticly in the wind



track untensioned (note position of worm gear)



tension applied



torsion bar suspension at work.



The STuG knocked out



It sitting on my Panther hull for comparison

The sheer amount of win streaming out of my computer right now is breathtaking. Thankfully, I just have to type my happiness rather than speak it. HIPPO TEAM, ROLL OUT! :3

Quoting jack kenyon Yes! Yet another GUP fan! This had to be done in Lego. Very well done Tommy. This makes me want to make one. I don't have enough gold for the Turtle team, and no pink at all for rabbit team. Maybe I might try to make Leopon Team's Tiger P, or the Hetzer from the final. Either way, great work, something unexpected.
heh, I have a few more unmentioned builds up my sleeve. :)

Ah yes, this was when it had the color scheme that ruined camo and the flags that ruined the low profile. XD Nice work.
