Revell 1:72 Scale Plastic Model Kit Review

German Stug III Ausf. G Assault Gun, 1:72 Revell Model Kit 03132

Revell offers a late version Stug III Ausf. G with sloped "pig’s head" gun mantlet, which deflected enemy anti-tank rounds more effectively than the earlier box-shaped gun mantlet. The Stug III G was the most common German assault gun, with 7,720 vehicles produced between 1942 and 1945. The vehicle had "Schürzen" hull side skirts fitted for added armour protection against hollow-charge anti-tank rounds. The "Schürzen" consisted of four plates hung from a railing attached to the hull side and track guards, which can be seen in the photo above.
