Plastic Soldier Sturmgeschütz III Ausf. G Assault Gun with Concrete Armor in 1/72 Scale

Another Plastic Soldier StuG III, this time with the Saukopf gun mantlet and concrete armor added to the front of the fighting compartment.  The concrete armor was added to some StuGs late in the war.  The Schürzen armored plates were designed to offer protection against the Soviet PTRS-41 and PTRD 14.5 mm anti-tank rifles which were produced in great numbers and proved capable of penetrating the side armor of the StuG III.  The skirts also proved useful against hollow-charge weapons such as the American Bazooka.
