StuG III Ausf. G "April Fools!"
Jochem Kleerebezem

This model represents an Ersatz StuG III G used in the Ardennes offensive by the German Panzer Brigade 150 to fool American troops. Success was limited and now it lies abandoned a few months after the offensive. The fate for most if not all of the vehicles used by this Panzer Brigade. For the "disguise" i used thin aluminum foil. Also a partial engine bay was scratched for the open engine hatch. Painting was done with acrylics.
