That’s a good question, and I don’t know the answer. Several references I googled showed that. My guess would be some kind of aerial recognition, I can’t think of any other reason.
Nice. I wanted to get one these in 1/56
It was an improvised vehicle originally with an open top, but in Stalingrad that wasn’t so clever so it’s been up-armoured with a lid added. I think only 24 were built and had limited success, only 12 were employed in Stalingrad, so one will do for my purposes as a mobile artillery unit with heavy hitting power against buildings and defenses.
Oh, just with pliers. I didn’t really think to mention it as I always do this with my tanks, especially the T34s. I like to remove or seriously distort the front and rear mud flaps. I always think tanks look better with these removed.
Oh no, the hatch open hatch on the back is only approximate. just marked it roughly in pencil. If you tried to fit it, it wouldn’t be a good fit. But it doesn’t have to be – this isn’t a 1/35th award winning diorama, it’s just quick build for gaming – it’s good enough.
I found it hard to get a sense of the street layout. I think the building also overlooks the fountain. Stalingrad movies are the only references that I can really find.
