Sturmgeshultz 'STuG'

Sent in by Ernie Oliva of Welling Kent

Ernie has remodelled his HL Sturmgeshultz by adding a heavily modified Shurtzen side armour kit from Battlefrontmodels giving it his own spin by adding carrier racks on the rear to afford a battle used and lived in tank. The interesting paint finish that Ernies used is a mix of airbrush and wash techniques giving a well used and weathered appearance to the model.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A nicely finished project  from Ernie but where is the MG? as you could be rushed by Partisans at any time

DID YOU KNOW

At the time of Pearl Harbour the top U.S. Navy command was called CINCUS (pronounced "sink us"), the shoulder patch of the U.S. Army's 45th Infantry Division was the Swastika, and Hitler's private train was named "Amerika." All three names were soon changed for PR purposes.

Gurkhas win right to settle in UK

Started 21st May 2009

Gurkha veterans who retired before 1997 with at least four years' service will be allowed to settle in the UK, Home Secretary Jacqui Smith has said.

Ms Smith told MPs she was "proud to offer this country's welcome to all who have served in the brigade of Gurkhas".

It comes after a high-profile campaign by Joanna Lumley and other supporters of Gurkha rights - and an embarrassing Commons defeat for the government.

Some 36,000 Gurkhas who left before 1997 had been denied UK residency.

Ms Lumley, the actress who has been the public face of the campaign on behalf of the Gurkhas, said: "This is the welcome we have always longed to give."

She called Prime Minister Gordon Brown, who she had met earlier, a "brave man who has made today a brave decision on behalf of the bravest of the brave".

Gurkhas, who are recruited from Nepal, have been part of the British Army for almost 200 years.
