This issue of Allied-Axis gives a good spread of subjects.
First up is the Sturmtiger, with 19 pages of wartime photos inside and
outside a captured example and of detail close-ups of the preserved vehicle
at Sinsheim as well as some from the German users’ manual. There’s
even one showing the internal crane for shell handling, nice and clear
so very welcome if you’re fitting out the interior as this view
is so seldom seen.
Next come 16 pages on the GMC CCKW-353 Dump Truck –
just what you need to make best use of the Resicast conversion of the
Tamiya GMC. They’re followed by part 2 of the photo-essay on the
M3A1 Scout Car, in 14 pages and including good views of the driver’s
area and the radio fit-up as well as a shot of Patton’s modified
The next 34 pages deal with the M10 and M36 Tank Destroyers
in service. No walkround section on preserved vehicles here, alas –
maybe that will be in a future issue – but plenty of marking and
stowage ideas for builders of the new kits.
Finally there are 12 pages on the Krupp Protze gun tractor
to please anyone with the Tamiya version to build. Again, no walkround
but a good selection of wartime photographs to give ideas on marking and
Recommended if you need reference on any of the subjects
covered – or will for a future project!
