Nice job.

I would be concerned that the stowage might get a bit singed by the exhaust system.

Hi James what do you mean a SturmHetzer? I didn't know there was such a thing....isn't that the standard 75mm gun?
I am going to build a wargames army, a big beautiful wargames army, and Mexico is going to pay for it.

It's just a short 105mm made using the Flamethrower but pushed through the mantlet from behind.
The regular 75mm is probably twice the length I think and not as chunky.
There was no such thing though. But I just model and play for fun and enjoy the chaos of rivet counters melting with anger XD

Interesting idea. I am probably going to fit a directed energy weapon on one or more of them to provide some support to the Totenkontrolfahrzeug, though I would post under Weird War ^__^.

I was tempted to do it with the Stug/Stuh 105mm howitzer. But didn't have one

You could have gone for the 15 cm sIG 33 infantry gun. The chassis would take it not quite so sure about the fighting compartment.

I don't have any 15cm SIG 33 infantry guns spare
