Product: 1:35 StuG.III Ausf.F/8 Early Production

New releases keep on coming in Dragon’s 1/35 scale Neo Smart Kit range. The most recent subject is a StuG.III F/8 in its Early-Production variant. The StuG III Ausf.F was fitted with a longer-barreled 7.5cm gun. This marked its first true emergence as a tank destroyer rather than as a mere infantry support vehicle. Whereas the first Ausf.F vehicles featured a 7.5cm StuK 40 L/43 gun, a more potent L/48 gun was also introduced on a chassis similar to that of the Panzer III. Ausf.J and L. These new tank destroyers were called the F/8, since it was the eighth version of the StuG.III. Some 334 of these F/8s were produced from September-December 1942.

This fantastic 1/35 scale kit builds on the highest-quality parts already available in Dragon’s StuG.III kit series. Naturally, a prominent feature of Dragon’s Neo range is the remarkable Neo Smart Tracks, which include pre-molded lengths of track to make life much easier for the modeler, as well as individual links that allow appropriate sagging effects. For these first-edition kits, each vehicle features bonus interior parts such as the transmission and fighting compartment, which makes them especially attractive. This is a splendid Neo kit, and with the StuG.III F/8 Early-Production vehicle used on all different frontlines, including the titanic Battle of Kursk, modelers have almost infinite creative options available to them!
