By Michael Benolkin

Date of Review February 2009 Manufacturer Signifer
Subject StuG III Ausf.F8 'Flampanzer' Conversion Scale 1/35
Kit Number 35001 Media Resin
Pros Renders an interesting StuG variant for the DML, Gunze or Revell kits Cons Nothing noted
Skill Level Intermediate MSRP (Euro) 6.27€

First Look

Here is a simple conversion for any of the DML, Gunze Sangyo, or Revell 1/35 StuG III F8 kits which will render a Flammpanzer (flame thrower tank). The set provides a new upper hull block, gun barrel (flame thrower barrel), and travel lock to hold the barrel in place.

StuG III Ausf.F8 'Flampanzer' Conversion

Signifer has released this this simple conversion in resin, which is a good opportunity for modelers wishing to try their hand at resin conversions. If you want to build your next German armor project that isn't the same as every other StuG III kit built out of the box, give this variant a go.

My sincere thanks to Signifer for this review sample.
