Eduard StuG III Ausf. G gun barrel
in turned aluminum (34034)
by Frank De Sisto
Although designed for the Tamiya kit, this gun tube can be used on just
about any German vehicle that mounted the 7.5cm KwK 40 or StuK 40 L/48
gun. This includes the StuG. IV, Jagdpanzer IV L/48, and any Pz.Kpw. IV
Ausf. G, H or J. The post-war G-13 version of the Jagdpanzer 38 also mounted
the StuK. 40. Naturally, any of the other StuG. III Ausf. F and G kits
on the market will also be able to mount this gun tube.
The gun tube itself is cleanly turned and features an integral muzzle
break. It is also keyed to fit precisely into the Tamiya kit’s mantlet.
This simple-to-use accessory will save the experienced modeler some time.
It will also allow the less-experienced modeler to forego the task of
carefully cleaning up the kit’s plastic gun tube, while not putting
it “out of round” in the process.
