    Got these two kits a month ago and was in the distant future planning on making and finishing a diorama with both vehicles. I was curious if there are any pics anyone may have of and Opel and Stug III are seen together.. I am thinking more of a diorama in Russia... but who knows....

    Thanks!

    Just an idea but you could have one parked, say the Stug with a crew sitting on it with the Blitz passing by.

    or just make it late 44 on the Ost front the Blitz could carry 7.5cm rounds as well, any and all vehicles were used to carry arms and munitions, so does not have to be an ambulance vehicle unless you wanted kt to be so.

    Not a bad idea! Would I have to change the end of the truck though?

    Like where they'd keep the wounded.

    this is all fine but the pics are all early war, you have a Stug III from 1943 onward though

    Okay.

    Jan your one to talk! :lol: Beaufighter, Me-110, Ju-88, B-25, and a couple cars. Me! Busy :lol:

    What makes you say that?

    I have all the material I need.

    MIG pigments that mix into a mud look.
    Two part epoxy for water
    The kits
    All I need are scenery and a base.

    I have a idea! After this HH GB is over or my entries (I am entering a Do-217) are done... the dio will be a burned out Stug on the side of the road and an Opel on a muddy road passing by. The side of the road will have shell holes and such :D
