Very authentic looking concrete-like surface !
Never seen concrete being used for up armouring to that vast extend, they must have been really desperate. My grandad commanded a StugIV, and he spoke about concrete uparmouring on his vehicle, but only to eliminate small catches over the drivers position and on the right side of the gun.
Being a constrution engineer himself, he said that they always had difficulties in making the concrete stick to the vehicle, even with welded-on steel enfocements. I wonder how long this amount of material lasted without falling off, and what it did to the handling characteristics of the tank.......

Hanno, very interesting, I have plans for a concrete armoured Stug 3 using the Tamiya kit.
The inspiration for this was a YouTube modeller, night shift. I did a quick Google search and found it was real.
I had the exact same queries as you. I wondered whether it was poured like a slab onto the vehicle or constructed as slabs off the vehicle and then fitted. Think the former, assuming welding some anchor points onto the armour to hold it, like the dumb bells attachment rods you see on the side of the collesium. I don't think it would be to effective, crumbling with hits but guess anything helped. Think sand bags were better option. Believe Patton ordered that no extra armour be allowed due to extra load on mech drive train and him wanting high availability and speed.
Anyway for me it was just something different
Thanks for your feedback and comments, nice to get real world info

Hanno Kleinecke
Thank you for your explanation Scott ! Obviously not only Patton was afraid of overloading the vehicles chassis, the Panzertruppen as well forbid the use of fieldmod uparmouring such as concrete or tracklinks, which did not stop the crews from using them anyway.
There are reports of preproduced steel uparmouring kits made by the manufacturers especially for stugs, which were filled with concrete by the troops sometimes. The ultimate use of concrete armour on stugs is probably the appearance of the finnish stug in Bovington, with the complete upper hull being covered.
Anyway, your fieldmod is something unique, looking forward to seeing it finished !
19. January, 21:27

Much of it is assumptions on My part, should be finished in about a week, for my local ww2 group build.

The glass camera ports are awful, the size that the shallower out plastic suggests you need to drill out are way to big and the lens don't sit well. I eventually removed them all and am hoping that Crystal Clear will be able to replace

Yes, nice kit. Hadn't really tried preshading before. Think I went to far with the next layer so lost most of it. Cant believe how big this is. Probably would have preferred in 48th not 35th, so could put a Helix helicopter next to it for comparison

Did you hand hold the zoomed in shot? It is important to use a tripod, afaik zooming in makes it more blurry if the camera isn't entirely steady.

Maybe one of the other Skippys on this site might remember that advert - Kezza???
I'm from Perth originally (so we had marron, not yabbies or redcraw). I saw your comment on your M577 post, were you serving when the Reservists from the 10th Light (sea) Horse sunk a couple of M113s in the Swan River? One of my mates from Uni was in command when he managed to get swamped by a small wave - very funny story!

Hi Scott,
Personally I have never seen Academy ' Marines Sherman' so cannot tell.
A2 and A3 has different exhaust and engine cover.
Exhaust is covered by the wading trunks, so not visible. If you put some sandbag armor on the engine grille, another issue is solved...
