The StuG.III is a well-known tank destroyer used by German forces in WWII. Closely related is the StuH.42 (denoting Sturmhaubitze 42), which was used to support armor and infantry with a larger-caliber gun offering greater destructive firepower. The first low-rate production examples were manufactured by Alkett in October 1942, using chassis of StuG.III Ausf.E/F vehicles fitted with a 10.5cm StuH.42 L/28 howitzer.
The latest offering from Dragon represents a stunning 1/35 scale kit of an StuH.42 self-propelled howitzer based on a StuG.III Ausf.F chassis. This kit is cleverly based on Dragon’s highly sought-after StuG.III kits, but it incorporates completely new elements such as a retooled superstructure roof and fighting compartment. The front fenders are also brand new, and they are made from photo-etched metal to give maximum realism. Dragon’s StuG.III family in 1/35 scale was already impressive enough, but the line-up has just gained even more firepower with this fine rendering of a StuH.42 Ausf.F with larger-caliber gun!
