Lots of modelers fear applying Zimmerit to their panzers and are always
on the look-out for an easier method than putty and razor saws. The so-called
“waffle” pattern is especially daunting since it is rather
complex and normally only seen on the StuG. III, with it’s multitude
of small shapes and angles.
Eduard has come to the rescue with a well thought out set, which consists
in the main of flat panels that are affixed to flat surfaces. Each panel
is fitted for a particular spot on the kit and has cut-outs for such things
as hatch edges and hinges, as well as various ports and fittings. Optional
panels are also provided for the bolted bow appliqué armor, as
well as the welded armor. Also provided are the supports as seen beneath
the front and rear fender segments.
The only complex parts are those that must be bent around some of the
engine deck intake cowls, otherwise the entire set should prove useful
to all but the least experienced or novice modeler.
