A Sd.Kfz.252 is rearming a StuG III.
This project started ~15 years ago. It consists of a Tamiya Sd. Kfz.250/9. A Peddinghaus conversion to a Sd.Kfz 252, which is basically only the upper structure of a Sd.kfz.252. A SMA ammo-trailer with Jaguar L/24 ammo and Modelkasten tracks.
The StuG would be the Italeri/Dragon StuG III Ausf.B, with the short barrel L/24 gun.
The choice of ammo trailer, a Sd.Ah.33 instead of the usual Sd.Ah.32; is bascilly because the Ah.32 was out of stock. So the store owner told me that an Ah33 would work as well. And indeed, the Ah33 was used as an ammo trailer for StuG ammo. Although I think it was used for L/48 ammo. But I don't want to waste this very nice SMA model and of course you'll never know what the soldiers in the field did. If there is no photo of it, it doesn't mean it did not happen .
