Sadly, T064 was badly damaged
in our relocation and will be retired.
T064, Big Dog to his friends, was liked
by all. Even tho he had never
fired a shot in a battle, he was a demon on the target range. He is
survived by T013, 'Lil' Joe, and his embryonic little
brother, a Stug
III who is as yet,
Being a generous and kind "Machine 'O Deth" (sic), some of his
will be transplanted into the Stug III.
He was DEEPLY mourned by
the insurance adjuster.
The biggest challenge was scaling this beast down. Unlike the more popular tanks (Tigers, Shermans, Panzers, etc), there were no scale plans to be had. So armed with the real dimensions, some basic math, and the line drawing I found, I set to work scaling it down to 1/6 scale. Well, 1/6-ish. It was impractical to have a measurement of 139.75 mm.
