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