Post by Fire-at-Will »

Slowly being to get started on painting the 3d printed mountain. Here is my early war German Stuff

Crews still need to be added

What's the point of doing one period, when you can do them all.......... In life most people specialise so gradually they know more and more about less and less so eventually they know everything about nothing. I work on a broad front so eventually I'll know nothing about everything.

Depends which version but away from my references just now so not sure how many of each were built - not many I suspect.

This one is very similar to the mounting on the lengthened Pz II version

Very small numbers indeed - the figure 6 springs to mind...

From Tanks Encyclopedia
Troops are very resourceful and often make battlefield modifications to existing equipment. One such example was the 15cm sIG 33 L/11(Sf) auf Fahrgestell Panzerkampfwagen III Ausf.H (Sf). Only one was ever made and it did not survive the war. Luckily photographs are available to prove its existence and use in North Africa.
A Panzer III Ausf H tank chassis was used to mount the same 15 cm s.I.G. 33 L/11 heavy field howitzer that was used on 15 cm sIG 33 auf Fahrgestell Panzerkampfwagen II (Sf) that had an extended Panzer II tank chassis.
